Dwayne Johnson became the latest victim of a death hoax with rumours swirling that the action star had passed while filming a dangerous stunt for the upcoming Fast and Furious 7 on Thursday.
The bogus report was, once again, created by Global Associated News, a website responsible for some of the most outlandish fake celebrity deaths, and went viral on Twitter and Facebook.
"Actor Dwayne Johnson died while filming a movie in New Zealand early this morning - June 10, 2014, " the report read. "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."
Far from being hurt, Mr Johnson, known for his muscles and wrestling skills that have earned him the nickname 'The Rock', posted a series of photograph on his Twitter account showing the world what he does bests: weightlifting and promoting his action-packed films with little dialogue.
So, fear none, The Rock is well, safe and probably doing push-ups.
