Jackie Chan is the latest victim of internet death hoax. He is not dead and he’s currently in Delhi, India for the China Film Festival.
According to Global Associated News, “Jackie Chan died while filming a movie in Kitzbühel, Austria early this morning – June 20, 2013. 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).”
Some are also coming across rumors on Facebook saying the star died while perfecting a stunt and that he fell off a 12-story building. Check the fake report here.
The Internet has been trying to kill Jackie Chan since 2011. Back in early 2011, rumors started swirling that the Chinese star had a heart attack. Those rumors were also false and Chan posted a message to his Facebook page saying, “I am very much alive and in fact I am gearing up for my next film. I don’t know where these rumours come from.”
Despite his denial, those rumors have repeatedly resurfaced ever since then.
