Amid the unending speculations that Sylvester Stallone is already dead, new updates have shared several Instagram photos of the “Rocky” actor.
Are these proof that “Sly” is indeed gone already?
In August, a report about his supposed death made headlines after a site shared a so-called CNN video announcing the Hollywood actor’s demise. Following this, fans took to social media, particularly Facebook, to air out their sympathy to the family he has left behind.
However, there have also been some who shared their doubts especially when they have noted that the alleged video of the report claiming that Sylvester Stallone is already dead were shared on their timeline without them doing it.
While Snopes has already debunked the claim, several fans have appeared to be interested still about the on-going death hoax involving the “Rambo” actor. The site pointed out that there is no truth to the report insinuating that “Sylvester Stallone was found dead at his Los Angeles home at age 69.”
In a new Instagram image he shared, it can be surmised that the actor would like to assure his loyal followers that he is A-OK.
“A wonderful quiet dinner together with my daughter. #dinnerdate #spacetravel #nogravity #talkingheads @sophiastallone,” he captioned his wacky snap with his daughter.
Upon seeing the post, one of his followers appeared grateful for confirming that Sylvester Stallone is definitely not dead.
“OMG my heart dropped and I wanted to start crying like a baby. As if someone in the family passed away!! Thank God it was a hoax,” Silvian Frank commented.
After 24 hours since it was posted, it has already gathered more than 60,000 likes and almost 500 comments.
Prior to the release of the Sylvester Stallone dead report, Jaden Smith and Angelina Jolie were the first to be victimized by the death hoax.
Meanwhile, Mirror UK reported that the actor also shared another Instagram shot with light heavyweight champion, Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev. “Whatever he hits, he destroys,” he described their pose, which showed him getting a “punch” from the boxer.
Was it his way of trying to tease those who spread the death hoax that he could have been dead by punching, but never by suicide? One thing is sure, Sylvester Stallone is surely a clever guy!
