On Monday, the world woke up to some media outlets reporting that actor Sylvester Stallone had died.
According to these reports, the Rocky star was secretly battling prostate cancer, and he passed away from the complications of the disease.
Photos that accompanied the posts showed the 71-year-old looking sickly, and having lost most of his hair. Soon after, fans took to social media to start paying tribute to the entertainer.
However, they were in for a reality check.
Turns out, the reports were all fake, and the Rambo star was once again the target of a celebrity death hoax.
The photos included in the articles about his passing were from the set of Creed 2, a movie in which Stallone's character, Rocky Balboa, battles non-Hodgkins lymphoma.
As the reports started to spread like wildfire, Stallone decided to put an end to them by addressing the hoax on social media.
