Sylvester Stallone said on Monday that he was alive and healthy, and called on his fans to ignore a death hoax that spread on the social media like wild fire.
"Please ignore the stupidity," the 71-year-old actor tweeted Monday. "Alive and well and happy and healthy…Still punching!"
Why it matters: Sylvester Stallone is one of the greastest actors of our time, and is very well known for his roles in many movies, including John Rambo from the four Rambo films released between 1982 and 2008. But a death hoax on Sunday began to spread on the social media that he had died of cancer.
By the time he reacted, millions of people had seen the fake news and had begun mourning him.
