The actor Sylvester Stallone is the latest to fall victim to a celebrity death hoax. A link to a story that claims he has died in a snowboard accident is being spread on Twitter.
“Actor Sylvester Stallone is reported to have died shortly after a snowboard accident earlier today - January 21, 2013,” the fake story reads.
However, it appears there are many users who believe that the story is real and they’ve begun flooding social media websites with posts like:
“Someone just told me Sylvester Stallone is dead. Was killed in a snowboarding accident, is this true? #crazy”
“Sylvester Stallone dies in snowboarding accident, may GOD be with him.”
In December 2012, a similar hoax about Jim Carrey was making the rounds.
