Sylvester Stallone has responded to his latest death hoax, and in typical style.
The Hollywood veteran took to his Instagram to call bullsh*t on the rumours which had spread earlier on Monday.
Posting a picture announcing the hoax, he wrote:
Please ignore this stupidity… Alive and well and happy and healthy… Still punching!
The original rumour began to surface about 18 months ago, when users on Facebook reported a fraudulent story that was doing the rounds suggesting Stallone had been found dead at his LA home.
Obviously, as most things on the internet tend to be, the whole thing was found to be a hoax after the story was linked to a website which was known for creating and disseminating false info on celebrity deaths.
People are saying the actor has been dead since the last rumour circulated, so can’t explain his public appearances since that hoax.
Over the last few weeks, RIP messages have been circulating online, with some even claiming the Rocky star had died from prostate cancer.

Let’s hope it doesn’t get to the level it did last time, when Sly had to post a selfie of himself on social media to prove he was in fact alive and well. Only time will tell.
He recently shared a fan-made poster of Creed II on his Instagram.
While not the real thing, it still whets the appetite for the upcoming sequel starring Michael B. Jordan.
If you take a look at his other Insta posts, you’ll see snaps of a man who is clearly still incredibly healthy despite his age, lifting weights which most men half his age wouldn’t even attempt.
The posts are perplexingly still peppered with RIP posts, but most of the people commenting on his images are marvelling at the absolute specimen before them.
Sly will step up his training regime in the coming weeks and months to prepare for the upcoming boxing flick, which will no doubt feature some more boxing from the man himself.
