Dwayne Johnson ‘The Rock’ Not dead
… victim of a death hoax again
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 posted 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.
