When a rumor about Jackie Chan’s death spreads across the internet, who better to clear it up than the actor himself? According to an online rumor, Chan died in a car accident in Austria. Though several websites were quick to discount the story, that didn’t stop people from continuing to share it.
That is, until Jackie stepped in. He posted a message on Facebook Friday (June 21), poking fun at the reports. “Today, everybody called to congratulate me on my rumored engagement. Afterward, everybody called me to see if I was alive.” The message continues, “If I died, I would probably tell the world!”

Jackie also included a photo of himself with the current day’s newspaper, ransom-style. He ends the message talking about his dogs, noting they are also in fine health and clarifies he has Golden Retrievers, not Labradors.

Jackie Chan NOT dead! (Photo : Facebook)

Popular martial arts actor Jackie Chan is just the latest celebrity to fall victim to the infamous online death hoax (again). But no worries, “Rush Hour” fans, Chan is still indeed alive and well. The 59-year-old Hong Kong superstar even hit up Facebook and Twitter to debunk the morbid death rumors! Chan posted a photo posing with an issue of Friday’s newspaper (June 21), proving that he hasn’t bitten the dust just yet. At least he has a good sense of humor about it!

The internet tried killing-off Chan back in 2011… and for some reason, such morbid death rumors started resurfacing on Twitter and Facebook again earlier this month. Here’s the bogus Global Associated News report that started the whole thing:

“Actor Jackie Chan died while filming a movie in Kitzbühel, Austria early this morning – June 23, 2013 (obviously the fake obit generates up-to-date deaths). Preliminary reports from Austrian Police officials indicate that the actor fell more than 50 feet to his death in a remote area of the Hahnenkamm mountains while on-set during the filming of a movie. Specific details are not yet available. The accident occurred at approximately 4:30 a.m. (UTC/GMT +12).”
