‘Please ignore this stupidity… I’m still punching!’ Sylvester Stallone dismisses bizarre hoax claiming he has died of cancer… as outraged brother Frank slams ‘deranged’ trolls for concocting story
Sylvester Stallone has laughed off a bizarre hoax suggesting the legendary actor has died in an Instagram post shared with followers on Monday evening.
Stallone, 71, insisted he was very much alive and well, putting to recent claims that he had passed away following a secret battle with prostate cancer.
Sharing a fake obituary with followers, in which his picture has been drastically altered to give him a frail, aged appearance, the Rocky actor wrote: ‘Please ignore this stupidity… Alive and well and happy and healthy… Still punching!’
Evidently delighted, one responded: ‘I have seen on Facebook. Wasn’t sure if this was a trusted news source. Grateful it’s false news and that our Action Hero Star Sylvester Stallone is WELL and Alive. And still punching strong. Keep well Mr Sylvester Stallone.’
