Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, was a victim once again of a sick death hoax.

On Saturday, the gross pranksters at Global Associated News “reported” that the “actor died while filming a movie in New Zealand.”

According to the sick site, “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.”


Johnson is very much still alive, and was tweeting on Saturday from New Orleans.

These awful hoaxes have got to stop.
