Dear Folks, Rambo is Not Dead!

A extravagant rumor that Sylvester Stallone is dead is sweeping the internet once again, 18 months after it first surfaced. Facebook users reported seeing a fraudulent message in September 2016 claiming Stallone had been found dead at his LA home.

It was later exposed as a hoax after it emerged it was linked to a website known for creating and sharing celebrity death hoaxes. But the rumor has now returned to social media a year-and-a-half later. The return of the hoax appears to have been sparked by him sharing a fan poster for Creed II – the next installment in the Rocky film series. After seeing Sly’s face on the advert, some people on social media – still convinced that he was dead from the last hoax – reacted with confusion.
