Sylvester Stallone popularly known as Rambo’s death rumours has swept the internet once again as bizarre hoax resurfaces after 18 months.
Social media is filled with RIP messages for the legendary Actor.
Facebook users reported seeing a fraudulent message in September 2016 claiming Stallone had been found dead at his LA home.
It was later exposed as a hoax after it emerged it was linked to a website known for creating and sharing celebrity death hoaxes.
But the rumour has now returned to social media a year-and-a-half later.
The return of the hoax appears to have been sparked by him sharing a fan poster for Creed II – the next instalment in the Rocky film series.
After seeing Sly’s face on the advert, some people on social media – still convinced that he was dead from the last hoax – reacted with confusion.
RIP messages began to circulate online, with some claiming Sly had died from prostate cancer.
Twitter users were seen asking each other if the Rocky star had really passed away as the Chinese whispers spread like wildfire.
