|Breaking News- Jackie Chan Is DEAD by blackberryman: 7:01am On Aug 15, 2013|
The famous actor Jackie
Chan is not dead, despite
the numerous rumors
circulating on social
Jackie Chan is the latest
celebrity to become the
victim of a death hoax.
According to Hoax Slayer, at
least a couple of hoax posts
have been making the rounds online.
“Hollywood Breaking News - Jackie Chan died
after perfecting a deadly stunt. Jackie Chan falls
from a building of 12 floors. Police are currently
investigating. Watch the original video of the
deadly stunt and their effort to save Jackie
Chan,” one of the hoaxes reads.
The other one claims, “Jackie Chan died while
filming a movie in Kitzbühel, Austria early this
morning - June 20, 2013. Preliminary reports
from the Austrian Police officials shows 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.”
While such celebrity death hoaxes might appear
harmless, in reality they’re often used by
scammers to lure unsuspecting internauts to
survey scams and other shady websites, which is
why it’s important for users to check out the
legitimacy of such a story before distributing it.
In this case, a large number of people bought
the fake story. Jackie Chan himself even
published a photo on Facebook to show everyone
that he’s not dead.

This is the actual story. Was trying to correct the rumour but mistakenly submitted before I finished ( forgot I had not finished editing , so I just clicked on the submit button) sorry for the error. I saw comments already so I had to correct immediately I noticed it to avoid further spread of the wrong news
