Is Sylvester Stallone dead?

Yesterday, the breaking news that Sylvester Stallone had passed was posted on Facebook by someone who we believe had too much spare time. The sick prank caught the attention of over 2 million Facebook users who shared the rumor and expressed their regrets, without even thinking to double check the information. It's ok, no one ever does anymore.

The rumor was spread so quickly, the actor had to say something.

Please ignore this stupidity… Alive and well and happy and healthy… Still punching!

And to make it clear that he's perfectly fine, he then posted a video of him and his daughters, joking that "It's so great to be back from the Dead!!!"

The funny thing is that this isn't Stallone's first "death". He has "died" before in September 2016, and so have others, such as Vin Diesel, Jaden Smith, Angelina Jolie, Nicolas Cage, Jim Carrey or John Cena. Thankfully, they're all well!

Sylvester Stallone's brother also reacted, clearly disturbed by this sick prank.

Social media, please stop killing great people and friends, for the love of God, double check things before you spread them on the internet.
