Once again the fake death generators have spread the news that Dawyne Johnson aka The Rock is dead. In another death hoax, which went widespread on June 9, it is being said that Johnson died while performing a dangerous stunt in "Fast and Furious 7." The hoax containing the video went viral on the Facebook and it is being speculated that the video contains virus and malware, so it is best not to click it, reported Travelers Today.
Another death hoax claims that, Johnson fell from a cliff while performing an action scene for the "Fast 7."
"Actor Dwayne Johnson died while filming a movie in New Zealand early this morning - June 10, 2014.Preliminary reports from New Zealand Police officials indicate that the actor fell more than 60 feet to his death on the Kauri Cliffs while on-set. Specific details are not yet available. The accident occurred at approximately 4:30 a.m. (UTC/GMT +12)," reads a report from Global Associated News.
This is not the first time that the fake report of Johnson falling from the cliff has gone viral. A few months ago, two back-to-back death hoax reports were released which had said that Johnson died after he fell from a cliff.
The news of Johnson's death is completely fake as the note at the bottom of the Web site Global Associated News reads: "FAKE... THIS STORY IS 100% FAKE! this is an entertainment website, and this is a totally fake article based on zero truth and is a complete work of fiction for entertainment purposes! this story was dynamically generated using a generic 'template' and is not factual. Any reference to specific individuals has been 100% fabricated by web site visitors who have created fake stories by entering a name into a blank 'non-specific' template for the purpose of entertainment."
Johnson is absolutely fine and is currently shooting for "Fast and Furious 7." Just eight hours ago he tweeted to his million followers on Twitter.
