Los Angeles hospital has reported that Jackie Chan has died. The legendary Hong Kong actor who appeared in over 100 films allegedly passed away last night following a heart attack. The report added that doctors say extreme stress due to his occupied schedule puts too much pressure on his heart. Chan is scheduled to fly to Hong Kong today to begin shooting the next film ’1911‘. However, the death report of the great martial arts Hongkong actor was just merely a fraud gossip. He is now in good condition and preparing his new movie shooting in South Korea. An update to his Facebook page stated that the issue was fraud and totally mistaken.
However the trending hoax has been already swallowed by some people and public figures. A couple of celebrities have also posted their personal tributes through face book. Will Smith; “A remarkable actor, he will be forever missed and always in our hearts. RIP Jackie. x” Even United States President Barack Obama laid down a personal tribute to the martial artist saying: “Jackie Chan is a man who can talk through talent, he is a constant reminder of the strength of humanity. He will forever be in our hearts, a true inspiration who inspired many generations. First it’s Nate Dogg then it’s Jackie Chan.”
