It’s already been a crazy week with celebrities getting accused of doing things they haven’t or accused of not doing things they say they did. The most recent one was Jackie Chan who was accused of doing something he clearly did not do, which is die.
OTRC reported that one way or another, through gossip on social networking sites, the martial arts action star suffered a heart attack and died. This was until through his own Facebook, a status was left denying that Chan had any problems at all, and he was in fact busy filming his current movie.
I must be out of the loop because I hadn’t heard anything about Jackie Chan dying until the day it was reported that he wasn’t dead. I’m now more concerned about which movie he is currently working on. The last live action movies he appeared in were The Spy Next Door and The Karate Kid Played By Will Smith’s Son. (that was the full title right?) Maybe Rush Hour 4 or The Tuxedo 2? (Please God no!) [Ed. – I hear that movie was very very popular]
The next movie Chan will appear in through is Kung Fu Panda 2: The Kaboom of Doom as the voice of ‘Furious Five’ warrior Monkey. The film releases this Summer. Jean Claude Van Damme will also be in the movie as a Crocodile, but he should’ve been a Kung Fu Beaver. Van DAM, get it?
This isn’t the first, nor will it be the last celebrity death hoax, but with such a vast web of social networks out there, gossip is able to spread across the globe in a flash. Below is a small list of celebrity death hoaxes.
Jeff Goldblum – Fell to his death while filming in New Zealand
Johnny Depp – Killed in a car accident in France.
Taylor Lautner – Died of a cocaine overdose.
Will Ferrell – Hang Gliding accident. (I picture his cameo in The Goods as how that would have carried out.)
Adam Sandler – Snowboarding accident.
Charlie Sheen – Died from an overdose of ‘Winning’, but was then resurrected by Vatican Assassin Warlocks. (I actually just made that up. But hopefully with everyones help it becomes the sweetest death hoax of all time.)
