Calm down, people! Sylvester Stallone is still very much alive despite what the internet has been saying.
After a rumor that the actor has passed away surfaced, fans took to social media to mourn him until it was made as clear as possible that he is not dead!
The rumor started on Facebook, and it soon spread throughout all social media.
The initial statement claimed Stallone lost the battle with prostate cancer.
What is even crazier is the fact that this is not the first time the internet thought the star had died.
Back in 2016, a similar post that claimed CNN had reported Sylvester Stallone was found dead in his Los Angeles home started circulating.
Later on, it was discovered that it was a website’s doing.
The said site actually specializes in celebrity death hoaxes.
A lot of social media users called out the fake news this time around but a great number of fans still fell for it, and they took to social media to share their pained reactions to the supposed passing of the actor.
‘Wow Sylvester Stallone died, and I am taking the death like I knew him personally,’ one user tweeted.
After realizing the truth, one other fan wrote: ‘Omg I thought Sylvester Stallone was dead! I hate the Internet.’
Others made fun of the hoax: ‘BREAKING NEWS: At the age of 71 beloved Actor Sylvester Stallone, woke up peacefully in his home this morning.’
In other words, do not worry, guys – 71-year-old Sylvester Stalone is definitely not dead this time either!
Are you one of the many fans that were fooled by the rumors?
