After a plethora of social media posts declared the Rocky actor dead, Sylvester Stallone has come to his own rescue and has denounced the hoax about his death. The actor slammed social media reports of his death along with his brother, Frank who termed those spreading the hoax as ‘mentally deranged’.

The actor took to Twitter and Instagram to announce his mortality.

“Please ignore the stupidity. Alive and well and happy and healthy…Still punching!” the 71-year-old posted on his Twitter handle.

Sylvester pointed out that the images which apparently showed him suffering from cancer – that made him lose his hair, were likely from a scene he has filmed for one of his films.

Terming the social media reports of his brother’s death as rumours, Frank, 67, said, “What kind of sick demented cruel mind things of things like this to post? People like this are mentally deranged and don’t deserve a place in society.”
