Rumours began spreading early this morning that Sylvester Stallone had died. Social Media was quick to follow with an outcry of condolences and sympathy messages for the now 71-year-old actor with some even going as far as changing their profile pictures to black ribbons in solidarity. Other’s began recounting their favorite Stallone films while discussing how Hollywood would ever be able to cope with the loss.
Unfortunately for everyone who bought into this little story though, Stallone is alive and well and this, as it turns out is the exact same hoax from 18 Months ago. This time it seems to have been sparked by the release of a film poster.
Stallone is very healthy, and is, in fact, prepping for the release of Creed II which will see him reprise his role as Rocky from the popular film franchise of the same name.
Seems the release of the Creed II poster and trailer was just too much to handle for some people…
