Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Is Alive NOT Dead
WWE wrestler and Actor, Dwayne Johnson popularly known as ‘The Rock’ has become the victim of a death hoax. Dwayne Johnson has become the victim of a death hoax once again, after a fake news story circulated that he had been killed in a stunt gone wrong.
The actor and wrestler, 47, has yet to comment on the stories, but given that he was posting on his Instagram story about a fan gifting him a beaded version of one of his movie posters, fans can be assured he’s not posting from beyond the grave.
The hoax story’s headline read: ‘BBC: Dwayne The Rock Johnson Dies at 47 after a terrible stunt attempted failed’, and quickly circulated around Facebook.
Despite using the BBC in the headline, the link would take users to a fake website rather than the legitimate news source, and there is no story about The Rock being dead on the BBC.
This isn’t the first time Dwayne has been the target of a death hoax – the Fast And Furious star was also declared dead by trolls in 2011 and 2014.
