Jackie Chan Is Not Dead
Earlier today I noticed a few Facebook posts about Jackie Chan dying. Apparently this rumor has been floating around for a few weeks now. But it's just that. A rumor.
Jackie Chan wrote on his Facebook page on June 21st:
"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."
He also posted this picture holding a newspaper with the date of June 21st clearly visible.
This apparently isn't the first time for a Jackie Chan death hoax. In March, rumors of his death started on Twitter saying he had a heart attack. That also wasn't true.
Remember, before you spread stuff on Facebook or Twitter, it's a good idea to make sure it's actually true!
