Sylvester Stallone dead reports have continued to swirl and has even had fans go crazy over the news.
Did the “Rambo” really commit suicide to end his life?
What could be the reason behind it? Was he affected with depression?
Facebook posts of several fans have shown trace of shock and grief.
“Rest in peace Sylvester Stallone Will be missed Love rocky movies and first blood,” a certain follower of the actor wrote on the social media site.
“Sending my deepest condolences to Sylvester Stallone family. No words can ever explain what you and your family are feeling and going through. May the LORD give you the strength to continue on. ‘JOHN RAMBO’ will surely be missed!” another shared.
Meanwhile, one fan wrote, “These people that come up with these bu***it lies, why call it a hoax, it’s called a f*****g straight up lie! just to get advertising and I think it’s sick, they should be in jail.”
While it appeared that these Facebook users have posted such messages on their walls, another revealed that she never shared anything about the talked-about supposed death of Sylvester Stallone.
Could it be possible that the source of the alleged “dead” story posted on their behalf? It can be recalled that in the past weeks, a number of Hollywood stars have been victims of death hoax. Among them are Jaden Smith, Angelina Jolie and Rowan Atkinson.
As with the latest death hoax that victimized Sylvester Stallone, Snopes said that the “scam message” came out in August. According to the site, the fake report claimed that “The Expendables” star was found dead inside his home in Los Angeles.
The death hoax stories are said to come from the same source, which seems to have banked on click-baits. Who could be the next star to be reported as dead after Sylvester Stallone?
