Jackie Chan Confirms Once Again That He’s Not DeadBy: Zach Walton - July 25, 2013
Jackie Chan is one of the best martial artists/stunt actors to have ever lived. That doesn’t mean he’s invincible though. His stunts are oftentimes dangerous, and people use that as an excuse to start spreading rumors that he has died. Now the man himself has addressed those rumors.
On his blog late last month, Chan said that he started hearing rumors that he had died. He took to his blog to prove that he wasn’t dead, and to set the record straight on what would happen if he were to die:
Hi everybody! Yesterday, I got on a 3am flight from India to Beijing. I didn’t get a chance to sleep and even had to clean my house when I got home. Today, everybody called to congratulate me on my rumored engagement. Afterward, everybody called me to see if I was alive.
If I died, I would probably tell the world! I took a photo with today’s date, just in case you don’t believe me! However, thank you all for your concern. Kiss kiss and love you all!
He also shared the following image from his Weibo account:
