Sylvester Stallone Kills Death Hoax that tried to Kill Him

Negating reports that he had passed away from prostate cancer, Sylvester “Rambo” Stallone has urged people to “ignore this stupidity” writing that he was “Alive and well and happy and healthy….Still punching!”

The 71-year-old Hollywood veteran followed it up with a kind of inspirational post which read, “Remember to always grab LIFE by the throat and do not let go until you succeed!!!”

He also shared a fun video where he’s seen goofing around with his daughters Sophia and Sistine aged 21 and 19, respectively, providing further evidence that he was not only alive but kicking and “punching” as well.

He captioned the post:

“Locking my daughters outside during a slight hail storm… It’s so great to be back from the Dead!!! “

It was in response to social media posts that have been doing the rounds of late, falsely declaring the “Rocky” star dead.

One such Facebook post read:


“Sylvester Gardenzio Stallone died early this morning after his battle with prostate cancer, the actor kept his illness a secret, but in the end he couldn’t beat it.”

The post was accompanied by images showing a visibly haggard and frail-looking Stallone, which, reportedly, turned out to be stills from his upcoming film “Creed II” which tells the story of an aging Rocky Balboa’s struggle with cancer.

Sly’s brother Frank Stallone,67, was even more scathing in his denouncement of the hoax calling the people behind the hoax “mentally deranged” saying that they “don’t deserve a place in society. “What kind of sick demented cruel mind thinks of things like this to post?” he questioned.

Frank Stallone gave further vent to his ire in another post on Instagram wherein he wrote alongside the picture of his haggard and  sickly-looking brother:

“This picture was posted of my brother by the low life who said he was dead. This photo is from the make up trailer on the set of Creed. Who raised these cretans anyway that they would find humor in someone’s passing? This person@rockybalboa should be thrown off social media and locked up!”

The younger Stallone also tweeted that he was “doubly upset” because Sly’s death hoax had upset their 96-year-old mother and that he just couldn’t “understand what makes these sick minded people tick?”

“I’m very protective of my older brother and I don’t find any humor in this fake post today,” he wrote.

According to, the Facebook message is apparently connected to a clickbait website that is “known for creating and sharing celebrity death hoaxes.”

It is the same site that has previously shared death hoaxes of top celebrities, including Vin Diesel, Jim Carrey, Jaden Smith, John Cena and others.





And, here are some more of the distasteful posts about Sly’s death.


It must be mentioned that this is not the first time the megastar has had to quash rumors of his untimely death, having faced a similar Facebook message back in September 2016, which claimed that Sly had been found dead at his Los Angeles residence.

Needless to say, the hoax was linked to the same clickbait site spoken of earlier.

On Feb 19, Stallone shared a fan-made poster of his forthcoming film Creed II which shows his unforgettable Rocky character alongside Dolf Lundgren, both standing behind Apollo Creed’s son – portrayed by Michael B. Jordan – and the son of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) who will face-off in the film.

He captioned the image with the words:

“Fight time …FANPOSTER!!! Not official #creed 2 #healthylifestyle #rockybalboa1976.”

And here’s another one to show that the legendary actor is still going “strong” and standing as “tall” as ever.

Alongside a picture of himself and his fellow cast members from the film “Lords of Flatbush,” he wrote:

“BE STRONG STAND TALL. myself and my fellow cast members from the film the Lords of Flatbush having a little fun between takes! #perryking#henrywinkler”
