According to Dailymail, the actor insisted he was very much alive and well, putting to recent claims that he had passed away following a secret battle with prostate cancer.
Sharing a fake obituary with followers, in which his picture has been drastically altered to give him a frail, aged appearance, the Rocky actor wrote:”Please ignore this stupidity… Alive and well and happy and healthy… Still punching!”
A follower responded: ‘I have seen on Facebook. Wasn’t sure if this was a trusted news source. Grateful it’s false news and that our Action Hero Star Sylvester Stallone is WELL and Alive. And still punching strong. Keep well Mr Sylvester Stallone.’
Another added: ‘Thank God, I don’t know you personally but have loved you for years, love your movies.
The actor’s brother, Frank previously took to Twitter in the wake of the sickening claim, and wrote:’Rumors that my brother is dead are false.
What kind of sick demented cruel mind thinks of things like this to post? People like this are mentally deranged and don’t deserve a place in society’.
He also posted a video entitled ‘Sly death a total hoax, not funny not cool’ and said ‘I made this video to dispel the rumours that my brother Sylvester is dead. That is so ridiculous, demented.
‘These are people that menace the society. They are useless in society. So Stallone power goes on.’
