This is not the first time Jackie Chan was reported dead. After being sucked into this type of hoax a couple of times I don’t know if next time I would believe such reports. I was relieved after finding out that this wasn’t true. One thing about spreading someone’s death is that this person can immediately crush these rumors through social networks.
“Jackie is alive and well. He did not suffer a heart attack and die, as was reported on many social networking sites and in online news reports … Jackie is fine and is busy preparing for the filming of his next movie,” reported his verified Twitter and Facebook accounts.
In the event that it was the other way around where Jackie Chan really passes away, I will not be surprised if someone spreads a rumor that he is “Alive”. Some Fans can’t accept the death of their idol to the point that they believe it, and always agree to a “conspiracy theory”. Take for example the death of Bruce Lee, Michael Jackson or Elvis Presley, to this day some people think that they are still alive.
