It seems like Jackie Chan is one of the biggest death hoax victims this year considering he reportedly "died" back in June and one month later another report of his death has come in. Actually, the story this time around is the same exact one from last month: reports claim that the 59-year-old martial arts actor fell from a 12-story roof while filming a stunt for a movie in Austria. Chan has not come out to disprove this claim yet, but that's probably because he already did a month ago on Facebook and Twitter!
When the original story (which is circulating again for some reason) came out, Chan took to his Facebook page to reassure his followers that he was alive and well. His post stated:
"Hi everybody! Yesterday, I got on a 3am flight from India to Beijing. I didn't get a chance to sleep and even had to clean my house when I got home. Today, everybody called to congratulate me on my rumored engagement. Afterward, everybody called me to see if I was alive.
"If I died, I would probably tell the world! I took a photo with today's date, just in case you don't believe me! However, thank you all for your concern. Kiss kiss and love you all!
"P.S. My dog is healthy, just like me! He doesn't need surgery! By the way, my dogs are golden retrievers, not Labradors."
Chan also included the following photo with the current date to further prove his wellbeing:
And here's the bogus Global Associated News report that started the whole thing:
"Actor Jackie Chan died while filming a movie in Kitzbühel, Austria early this morning - June 23, 2013 (obviously the fake obit generates up-to-date deaths). Preliminary reports from Austrian Police officials indicate that the actor fell more than 50 feet to his death in a remote area of the Hahnenkamm mountains while on-set during the filming of a movie. Specific details are not yet available. The accident occurred at approximately 4:30 a.m. (UTC/GMT +12)."
Why do you think this death hoax rumor is still circulating more than a month after it was disproved?
