Jackie Chan Not Dead – False Death and Heart Attack Report Angers Fans

Posted: September 29th, 2012 in Jackie Chan by LALATE

Jackie Chan Not Dead - False Death and Heart Attack Report Angers Fans died september 2012

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Jackie Chan is not dead. Jackie Chan is the victim of yet another fake death report, this time resurfacing from a Facebook page. The latest fabricated tale claims that Jackie Chan has died this September 2012. Also being falsely reported dead this weekend are John Cena, Tom Kenny the voice of SpongeBob, Lil Wayne, and Morgan Freeman.

Earlier this month, LALATE reported news how some fans are bothered by current policies on Facebook that allow users to create RIP pages. The same is the root of the problem striking Jackie Chan today. Since 2009, celebrity fake death reports have surfaced online through different conduits. Whether they are websites, Twitter feeds, comment strikes, or similar, they can prompt confusion and generally anger fans.

But in the last two years, upsurge has been seen in one problematic attack, the fake RIP Facebook Page. On Facebook, the company allows any user to create a “page to express support for or interest in a … public figure.” But fans are bothered when the page is falsely reporting a celebrity as dead, in the attempt to tarnish that celebrity’s following. One can argue that the conduct does not support the celebrity and is not an expression of interest for the celebrity.

So why have people since 2010 been allowed to create fake RIP Facebook pages about Jackie Chan? While that remains unclear, the issue is causing problems today once again. Like virtually clockwork, every six months a fake Jackie Chan upsurge restarts itself. After fans on Friday battled fake John Cena and Tom Kenny death reports, there is growth in fake Chan death reports today.

Chan has been the subject of the fake death reports via Facebook since March of last year. In March 2011, his rep issued a news statement denouncing a Facebook claim that he had a heart attack and died.

Then in August the second surge struck. One fan expressed their distinct anger about the fake RIP Facebook page at the time writing “Jackie Chan isn’t dead, I don’t like how anyone can make Facebook pages.”

While it may be unrelated, the strike against Chan today comes one month and two days after the assault against Morgan Freeman, also on Facebook, on August 27. “At about 5 p.m. ET on Thursday, our beloved actor Morgan Freeman passed away due to a artery rupture” someone wrote on a fake RIP Morgan Freeman page at the time.

Morgan Freeman and Tom Kenny aren’t dead. Jackie Chan is very alive. Tiesto hasn’t been in a car crash. And Lil Wayne hasn’t died.
