Jackie Chan – probably the greatest movie stuntsman ever – is NOT dead, says Jackie Chan himself.
The Hong Kong movie superstar addressed the rumors of his death that swirled around recently on Facebook on June 21, accompanying the post with a picture he took on that very day.
‘Hi everybody! Yesterday [June 20], 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 [June 21], just in case you don’t believe me! However, thank you all for your concern. Kiss kiss and love you all!’
Jackie Chan’s death hoax messages such as the following has been circulating around Facebook and the social media over the past week:
‘Hollywood Breaking News – Jackie Chan died after perfecting a deadly stunt. Jackie Chan falls from a building of 12 floors. Police are currently investigating. Watch the original video of the deadly stunt and their effort to save Jackie Chan. (for 18 years and above)
R.I.P. JACKIE CHAN 1954 – 2013
You will always be in our hearts forever. Rest in Peace.’
Another one reads:
‘Jackie Chan died while filming a movie in Kitzbühel, Austria early this morning – June 20, 2013. Preliminary reports from the Austrian Police officials shows 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).’
So if you come across these messages in your timeline, it is a scam. NEVER click on the link.
