Jackie Chan, Hollywood actor and martial arts legend, became a victim of celebrity death hoax again on social networking site Twitter.
Just a month ago, reports surfaced online that the 59-year-old actor died in a vehicle crash, forcing the actor clarify that he was alive.
However, this time rumours started spreading that the actor allegedly fell off a 12-story building while performing stunts for a film. The fake death reports started trending on Twitter on Thursday morning when a tweet stating that the actor died doing a stunt was posted online.
Here is how rumours went haywire on Twitter:
@_ItsMyWorlddd: Jackie Chan died tonight doing a stunt. Aweeeee RIP. I liked him

@MyDearAnnabel: So sad....Rest in peace Jackie Chan...the world will miss one of the best actors of our generation.
Jackie Chan's death hoax started last month after some people posted about the actor's sudden death and, several "R.I.P. Jackie Chan" facebook pages were also created.
The incident forced the actor to clarify on his official Facebook page that was doing fine. "Hi everybody! Yesterday, I got on a 3am flight from India to Beijing. I didn't get a chance to sleep and even had to clean my house when I got home. Today, everybody called to congratulate me on my rumored engagement. Afterward, everybody called me to see if I was alive. If I died, I would probably tell the world! I took a photo with today's date, just in case you don't believe me! However, thank you all for your concern. Kiss kiss and love you all!" he posted.
