Jackie Chan is not dead, just inspiring

2011-03-31 00:00

JACKIE Chan is not dead, despite all the tweets on Twitter that saw users of the mini blog site run amok with rumours again.

An initial tweet which read “RIP = Jackie Chan” was misconstrued as the famous martial arts actor having died, but in fact was meant to be read as “RIP = Really Inspiring Person”.

The phrase “RIP Jackie Chan” has been trending on Twitter for the past two days.

Chan follows a string of celebrities mistakenly thought to be dead, including Bill Cosby and Nelson Mandela.
