Jackie Chan is dead! But not really. Rumors circulated this week that the action star had passed away but Jackie cleared things up with a photo, a statement, and today’s newspaper.
Chan told his fans that he is alive and well and promised that if he would make the announcement himself whenever he does pass away.
Jackie said: “These few years, there have repeatedly been false news which has caused my fans and friends who care about me, to worry if I am dead! If I am really dead, I will definitely announce it.”
Chan also posted a photo with today’s date to make sure that no one had any doubts about the death hoax.
Chan added: “Tell everyone! Ha ha! To make people believe it, please look at the photo! Thank you for everyone’s concern and love!”
Jackie also took the time to clear up another persistent rumor: His dogs are also not dead.
Chan writes: “P.S. My dog is healthy, just like me! He doesn’t need surgery! By the way, my dogs are golden retrievers, not Labradors.”
Creating a death hoax about a beloved celebrity is one thing. But who would ever spread lies about a person’s dog. That’s just evil.
