Oops! They did it again. Jackie Chan is NOT dead. It's yet another hoax aimed at startling the fans of major celebrities and sports stars into believing their heroes have left this earth.
The newest hoax, which has actually been going around for several weeks now, is still being picked up by bloggers and pseudo-reporters as a new story. It just goes to prove that lies can travel a lot faster than the truth.
This particular story claims that Jackie Chan fell off of a 12-story building after working on a stunt routine for an unknown movie. According to The Inquisitor, Jackie Chan does most of his own stunts, making this story even more believable.
At one point, Jackie Chan took a picture of himself holding a dated newspaper, proving he was alive. I'm sure you won't see that again anytime soon. It must be tiring to have to prove you are alive so many times in one week!
