Don’t worry Twitchy fans, we’re not going to start covering every celebrity death hoax. But really? Jackie Chan? Loveable, butt-kicking, America-hating Jackie Chan?

We see these things come across our desks every day, but after a while we start to wonder how these death hoaxes continue to self-perpetuate. How many hoaxes does it take before people stop retweeting this rubbish, or before whoever starts them stops thinking it’s funny? Are there not better ways to prank the Twittersphere? Couldn’t we at least, like, announce the death of the last Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus or something? At least that would be legitimate, creative comedy.

But no, we’re killing off Jackie Chan … again.

Whoever did that last one gets extra points for graphics, but still, what is wrong with people?

At the end of the day, this is nothing out of the ordinary. However, speaking for those of us who actually have to sit and watch our Twitter feeds for a living, can we please stop the madness?

    Jackie Chan isn’t dead, but his career might be.

    Jackie Chan once said that the American Government was the most corrupt in the world. I was pissed and offended by his statements, only to find out he was RIGHT!!!!!

    OwebamaNation is a very highly corrupt nation……..sad, but true. Poor America. It used to be so awesome.

    “Perfecting a deadly stunt”… Well if he did die, then he did indeed perfected it!

    It was probably started by Chan himself in an effort to jump start his career after calling America the most corrupt nation on earth while speaking to the Communist Chinese.

    They learned their lesson from the MSM, apparently. Hear a rumor? Repeat it, endlessly, as fact. Eventually people will believe it. Goebbels would be proud.*
