The news that Sylvester Stallone is dead is resurfacing again. Is it because a number of rare photos were posted on his Instagram page?
A few weeks ago, a cryptic news popped up on Facebook which claimed that CNN had published the news that Sylvester Stallone was no more as he had allegedly killed himself. There was also photographic evidence showing him being carried away in a body bag.
Seeing that the news came with the seal of CNN, no one questioned the authenticity of the news and people all over the social media started mourning the loss of their beloved “Rocky Balboa”.
However, the internet has gotten into the habit of killing people, especially celebrities, even when they are alive and well, reports Hollywood Life. Sylvester Stallone was the victim of nothing but a death hoax, joining the long list past victims such as Miley Cyrus, Jaden Smith, Angelina Jolie and the Queen of England herself.
After the news of the death hoax was debunked, weeks later, people are suspecting that Stallone might be secretly nurturing a suicide wish!
This is due to his recent string of posts on Instagram of rare and never-before-seen pictures of “Rocky 4”, reports The Gamers Drop which would have been appropriate for his close family members to share while delivering his obituary some day.
Well, it certainly suggests that the actor and former body-builder is alive for now since he is very much active on his social media pages.
And not every hoax or rumor necessarily has to turn into reality just because Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are getting a divorce after tons of rumors claiming that they were going to for ages.
For all we know, Sylvester Stallone might just be nostalgic instead of being actually suicidal. It is the 40th anniversary of “Rocky” that was released back in 1976, after all!
One of the reasons as to why people would think that the pictures might suggest that the actor is contemplating suicide is because the pictures he posted are less than jovial. while one of them shows him getting beat up in the boxing ring, another shows him looking exhausted and hanging his head, ready to give up.
Check out the following rare pictures and relive Sylvester Stallone at his prime!
