The Courier-Mail – RUMOURS of Jackie Chan’s death have set the Twitterverse into overdrive, but according to his Facebook page the action star is alive and kicking.
The bogus news took hold after it was tweeted that the action star had suffered a heart attack, the Courier-Mail reported.
‘RIP Jackie Chan’ topped Twitter’s trending topics, sparking confusion and leading to a post on Chan’s Facebook page debunking the story.
“Jackie is alive and well. He did not suffer a heart attack and die, as was reported on many social networking sites and in online news reports.
Holy Shit! I can walk away from the ledge and step off the bridge. A world without Jackie Chan is not a world I want to live in. I couldn’t think of another person to do kung-fu comedies. Jet Li is not built for it. Plus, no one else has that type of rapport with Chris Tucker. I thing this hoax brings up a bigger issue and that is filling the hole that Jackie Chan will leave once his legacy ends.
