When the readers slicked on the spam article, instead of directing it to an article, it further automatically got shared on their pages too. This left the fans in dismay hearing the news about Stallone’s ‘death’. But his followers have found their smile back.
This was not the first time when hoax death report of a celebrity made a round. Well known stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Justin Beiber, Miley Cyrus and Angelina Jolie have also been victims of fake death reports where the news got circulated without anyone verifying the source.
