Hollywood actor and martial arts legend Jackie Chan fell victim to the infamous celebrity death hoax, which has killed several Hollywood and Bollywood celebrities on social media.
However, the martial arts legend, who recently attended the premiere of Aamir Khan's "PK" in China, took to his Facebook page to dismiss his fake death reports.
"I was shocked by two news reports when I got off the plane. First of all, don't worry! I'm still alive. Second, don't believe the scam on Weibo using my name about the Red Pockets," Chan said.
"This is my official Facebook page and I only have 1 official Weibo page. Love you all," Chan posted on his Facebook page.
The death hoax rumours started doing the rounds on Twitter and Facebook last week with several internet users posting condolences. But much to the fans' relief, the actor dismissed his death hoax reports.
Jackie Chan's Facebook post has gone viral now and has garnered more than 70, 000 likes with fans offering support to their beloved martial arts legend.
