One of the most popular Hollywood action stars ever, Sylvester Stallone was reported dead and it started a social media frenzy to find out all about it. But there was nothing to find there as nothing of the sort had happened. Did that stop anyone from searching the Net madly? Of course not! Sylvester Stallone had been caught in a death hoax and there was no way to confirm it. And this lent the rumour mills a lot of grist to churn out all kinds of theories.

Sylvester Stallone, a star going as far back in time as his earliest films Escape To Victory, held up his fists with Kovzalev. Sylvester was smiling cheekily and with his pose he showed to everybody that there was nothing wrong with his health. Fit as a fiddle, like always!

A lot of celebrities have been targets of death hoaxes from Robert Redford, Mark McGrath, Carlos Santana, Paul McCartney, Jackie Chan and even Macaulay Culkin.
Most them had a special take on it and brushed it off with an irreverent attitude. And Sylvester Stallone has now joined this celebrity list – like it or not!
