Sylvester Stallone's family has confirmed that he is in fact alive and well. Not only did they come to his defense but Sly himself posted a video with a caption that read:

"Locking my daughters outside during a slight hail storm… It’s so great to be back from the Dead!!!" 

This response marked by similitude, demonstrates Sly's willingness to sit in on the joke. Hopefully he can get a sweet return on this attention but something tells me he would be much happier if left alone.

According to brother Frank Stallone, the origin of the rumor can be traced to a single IG user who posted a picture of Sly from the make-up trailer on the set of Creed. An official statement on Sly's IG account screen caps the ludicrous effort put forward by "@rockybalboa."

The only question left to be settled is why Stallone gets pegged more than others. Your guess is as good as mine.
