Did Arnold Schwarzenegger develop heart problem from vaccine?!

Did Arnold Schwarzenegger develop heart problems after getting vaccinated against COVID-19?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Arnold Schwarzenegger Developed Heart Problems From Vaccine!

Right after Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed that he underwent surgery to implant a pacemaker, some people immediately claimed or suggested that the Hollywood icon and former California governor developed heart problems after getting vaccinated against COVID-19!

Salty Texan : Arnold Schwarzenegger now has a pacemaker and has had 3 open heart surgeries

I’m sure the “SCREW your Freedoms” vaccines had nothing to do with it.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Did Not Develop Heart Problems From Vaccine!

This is yet another example of fake news created or promoted by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Arnold Schwarzenegger Has A Congenital Heart Defect

Let me start by pointing out that Arnold Schwarzenegger was born with a bicuspid aortic valve – a congenital heart defect. The aortic valve normally has three cusps, but Schwarzenegger was born with just two cusps.

That may not sound like much, but it can develop into other heart problems like aortic valve stenosis, aortic valve regurgitation, or even an enlarged aorta that can eventually tear, leading to an aortic dissection.

Obviously, the COVID-19 vaccines cannot possibly cause his congenital heart defect, or its associated heart problems.

I stayed in touch with my medical team and visited in person at least once a year to get a full check-up and see how my heart was doing. That’s life with a genetic heart issue. But you won’t hear me complaining.

Fact #2 : Arnold Schwarzenegger Had Three Open Heart Surgeries

I should also point out that Arnold Schwarzenegger had three open heart surgeries in the past – long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

  • In 1997, he underwent surgery to replace his pulmonary and aortic valves.
  • In 2018, he underwent another surgery to replace the ageing pulmonary valve.
  • In 2020, he had surgery to replace his aortic valve.

I should point out that all those surgeries occurred before the first COVID-19 vaccines were approved. So the COVID-19 vaccines were definitely not responsible for his heart problems.

Fact #3 : Irregular Heartbeat From Old Scar Tissue

Arnold Schwarzenegger explained in his podcast that old scar tissue from his last surgery was causing him to have an irregular heartbeat.

… some scar tissue from my previous surgery had made my heartbeat irregular. It had been like that for a few years.

Fact #4 : Arnold Schwarzenegger Is Not In Poor Health

Based on his latest results, his doctor told him to get the pacemaker as soon as possible, so he quickly had it done, and went on with his life pretty quickly after that:

I told them I’d stop in Cleveland on my way home from the UK, and we’d do it. Monday, I went under and got my new machine part installed.

Like I said, by Friday, I was out doing my normal environmental work, and nobody knew anything. I can’t do my serious training in the gym for a while, but I will be 100% ready for FUBAR next month!

To be clear – Arnold Schwarzenegger isn’t dying, or in poor health, from heart problems.

Fact #5 : Arnold Schwarzenegger Has Family History Of Heart Problems

Arnold Schwarzenegger has spoken public about his heart problems, and even shared that he has family history of heart problems.

His mother and maternal grandmother both had heart valve problems. In fact, his mother died in 1998, after not getting the valve replacement surgery she needed.

Fact #6 : Vaccine Injury Claims Not Backed By Evidence

Finally, I should point out that all these claims that Arnold Schwarzenegger’s heart problems were caused by the COVID-19 vaccines are not backed by any evidence.

Never mind he had long-standing heart problems years before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented, none of those who made these claims offered any evidence his heart problems were caused by COVID-19 vaccines.

Just to be clear – COVID-19 vaccines cannot travel back in time to give him a congenital heart defect…

Did Sylvester Stallone Just Die Suddenly In Hospital?!

Did Sylvester Stallone just die suddenly in the hospital?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2024-01-26 : Added new updates, including updated MediaMass claim.

Claim : Sylvester Stallone Just Died Suddenly In Hospital!

People are sharing YouTube and TikTok videos claiming to show Sylvester Stallone just died in a hospital, with titles like :

Sylvester Stallone Just Die Suddenly In Hospital? Family announced sad news legend Sylvester Stallone

🔆 Rest In Peace // Legendary Actor ”’Sylvester Stallone”’ Breathed His Last At The Age of 76.

Recommended : Did Cristiano Ronaldo Just Die In Tragic Car Accident?!

 

Truth : Sylvester Stallone Did Not Die Suddenly Anywhere!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by people to generate income from page views and YouTube advertising, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Sylvester Stallone Is Still Alive + Well!

Hollywood legend, Sylvester Stallone (born Sylvester Gardenzio Stallone on July 6, 1946), is still very much alive and well, as of 26 January 2024.

For those who readily believe claims that Sylvester Stallone has died without even asking for evidence, here are some recent “proof of life”…

On 18 January 2024, Syl Stallone posted on his official Instagram account about the upcoming second season of his reality TV show – The Family Stallone.

Just last month, Sylvester Stallone posted a video of himself on 13 December 2023, speaking about never giving up when the time gets tough.

As you can see, Sly Stallone is still very much alive and well, even regularly keeping in shape in his gym – weeks and months after these fake YouTube videos claimed that he died in a hospital, at home, or even on the street!

Recommended : Did Dolly Parton Just Die Suddenly From A Stroke?!

Fact #2 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported His Death

These YouTube videos have been circulating for weeks and months, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported his death.

Sylvester Stallone is a Hollywood icon, starring in the Rocky and Rambo movies, as well as more recently, The Expendables movies.

No legitimate media outlet reported that Sylvester Stallone was sick, much less died suddenly in a hospital!

If Sylvester Stallone did indeed die, the worldwide media would have reported on his death. Yet, no one but small YouTube and TikTok channels picked up on his tragic death? That’s because it never happened.

Fact #3 : The Photos Were Edited

The photos used in these videos were edited from real photos, with some celebrities added in to make it look genuine. In this example, the fake news creator added Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis.

The actual photo is of the February 2019 funeral of Argentinian footballer, Emiliano Sala, who died in a plane crash off Alderney on 21 January 2019.

The photo was taken by Associated Press, and shows Nantes defender Nicolas Pallois and Emiliano Sala’s brother, Dario, helping to carry his coffin at his funeral on 19 February 2019.

Even when it comes to the really good photo-editing efforts, there are still some clues to show you that these were edited images.

In this example, you can see that Sylvester Stallone’s chin appeared to be cut out. More damning is pillow which had a Queensland Health logo on it.

Unless Sylvester Stallone happened to be filming in Queensland, Australia; there is no way he would end up being treated in its hospital!

Fact #4 : Sylvester Stallone Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Sylvester Stallone death hoax is, ironically, also being driven by a fact check article by the MediaMass Project.

News of actor Sylvester Stallone’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the January 2024 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, the actor best known for his roles in Rambo or Rocky is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Sylvester Stallone Facebook page is false. There is no such Facebook page. It is their standard fake fact check spiel for fake celebrity deaths.

The statement from Sylvester Stallone’s unnamed rep confirming that he is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other reps of celebrities MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Angelina Jolie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Gibb, Brad Pitt, Bruce Willis, Celine Dion, Clint Eastwood, Cristiano Ronaldo, Dolly Parton, Harrison Ford, Justine Bieber, Lionel Messi, Lucy LiuMadonna, Melanie Laurent, Mike Tyson, Morgan Freeman, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Pattinson, Simon Cowell, Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, Tom Cruise, and Tom Hanks.

He joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. He’s still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet.

Hidden in the description page for the MediaMass Project is a disclaimer that they are a “satire” website. That’s the usual “cover” for websites peddling fake news.

Regardless of their reasons, anything posted by MediaMass.net must be considered as fake news, until proven otherwise.

Did Arnold Schwarzenegger Just Die Of Heart Attack?!

Did Arnold Schwarzenegger just die in the hospital from a heart attack?!

Truth : Arnold Schwarzenegger Did Not Die From Heart Attack!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by people to generate income from page views and YouTube advertising, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported His Death

These YouTube and TikTok videos have been circulating for weeks and months, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported his death or heart attack!

Arnold Schwarzenegger is not only a Hollywood legend, he served as the 38th governor of California for 8 years! Everything he does, no matter how small, is covered in detail by the media and celebrity blogs.

When “the Governator” got fed up and fixed a neighbourhood pothole with his team, it even became international news! So if he actually suffered a heart attack, it would have been covered by legitimate news media.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet or even a celebrity blog reported that Arnold Schwarzenegger suffered a heart attack recently, much less died in a hospital. That’s because it never happened!

Fact #2 : Arnold Schwarzenegger Is Still Alive + Well!

Arnold Schwarzenegger (born Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger on 30 March, 1968) is very much still alive, as of Monday, 25 September 2023!

That was when he shared two posts on X (formerly known as Twitter), with comments like “Bryan, we are all rooting for you“, and “Fantastic work!“.

Just four days ago, Arnold even posted a video getting some exercise after his elbow surgery!

These and many other public posts appeared days and weeks after people started claiming that Arnold Schwarzenegger died from a heart attack!

Fact #3 : Viral Photo Was From 2020 Heart Surgery

The viral photo of Arnold Schwarzenegger clutching a red heart-shaped pillow while unconscious on a hospital bed is real, but it was taken from his 2020 heart surgery.

On April 16, 1997, Arnold Schwarzenegger underwent elective heart surgery to replace a defective, congenital aortic heart valve. He chose to get a tissue valve, as he felt that a mechanical valve might limit his capacity to exercise.

On March 30, 2018, Arnold Schwarzenegger had his pulmonary valve replaced at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

On Friday, 23 October 2023, Arnold Schwarzenegger underwent a third heart valve procedure at the Cleveland Clinic to replace his aortic valve. That was when the viral photo was taken.

That operation was successful of course, because Arnold is not only alive today, he posted a photo of himself with a thumbs-up on social media!

Thanks to the team at the Cleveland Clinic, I have a new aortic valve to go along with my new pulmonary valve from my last surgery.

I feel fantastic and have already been walking the streets of Cleveland enjoying your amazing statues.  Thank you to every doc and nurse on my team.

News of actor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the May 2023 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports.

Did Arnold Schwarzenegger Sleep In Front Of His Statue?!

Was Arnold Schwarzenegger once forced to sleep in front of his own statue, after being rejected by a hotel?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Arnold Schwarzenegger Had To Sleep In Front Of His Statue!

People are sharing a picture of Arnold Schwarzenegger sleeping in front of his own statue, together with this life lesson :

Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a photo of himself sleeping on the street under his famous bronze statue, and sadly wrote “How times have changed*

The reason he wrote the phrase was not only because he was old, but because when he was governor of California he inaugurated a hotel with his statue. Hotel staff told Arnold, “at any moment you can come and have a room reserved for you.” When Arnold stepped down as governor and went to the hotel, the administration refused to give him a room arguing that he should pay for it since they were in great demand.

He brought a sleeping bag and stood underneath the statue and explained what he wanted to convey: “When I was in an important position, they always complimented me, and when I lost this position, they forgot about me and did not keep their promise. Do not trust your position or the amount of money you have, nor your power, nor your intelligence, it will not last. “

Trying to teach everyone that when you’re “Important” in the people’s eyes, everyone is your “Friend ” But once you don’t benefit their interests, you won’t matter.

* You are not always who you think you will always be, nothing lasts forever”

 

Truth : Arnold Schwarzenegger Did Not Sleep In Front Of His Statue!

This is yet another example of celebrity FAKE NEWS, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : The Picture Is Genuine

First, let me confirm that the picture is genuine.

In fact, Arnold Schwarzenegger posted it on his own Instagram account and Facebook page on 15 January, 2016.

Fact #2 : He Did Not Sleep In Front Of His Statue

To be clear – Arnold only posed for the shot. He did not actually sleep in front of his own statue.

Fact #3 : He Was Filming A Movie At That Time

Arnold took that picture while he was in Columbus filming the movie, Aftermath (known at that time as 478).

He allegedly requested that the movie be shot in Columbus, because of his long love for the city.

More to the point – he would have been provided with accommodation while he was filming. He wouldn’t have needed to “comp” a hotel room…

Fact #4 : Most Of The Quotes Were Made Up

Arnold’s picture was only accompanied by this comment – “How times have changed.“. Nothing else.

The other quotes about being rejected by a hotel for losing his important position were made up.

Fact #5 : The Picture Was Not Taken Outside Any Hotel

Arnold took the picture in front of the Greater Columbus Convention Centre in Ohio. Not in front of any hotel, as the fake story claimed.

The 8 foot-tall statue was first erected outside the Franklin County Veterans Memorial on March 2, 2012, and moved to the Greater Columbus Convention Centre on October 6, 2014.

At the 2014 rededication of his statue, then-Mayor Michael B. Coleman told Schwarzenegger, “We want to memorialize that forever in front of our convention center.

Fact #6 : He Did Not Inaugurate Any Hotel With His Statue

Arnold Schwarzenegger did not inaugurate any new hotel with his own statue. Why on Earth would anyone do that? It doesn’t even make sense.

Arnold Schwarzenegger was honoured with that statue to commemorate his commitment to Columbus, Ohio, where the Arnold Sports Festival is held every year.

Fact #7 : Arnold Schwarzenegger Is Rich

It is hilarious that so many people actually believe that Arnold Schwarzenegger would be so hard up for a free hotel room.

He is wealthy, with a net worth estimated to be between $300 million to $400 million.

Fact #8 : He Stepped Down As Governor In 2011

Arnold Schwarzenegger was governor of California for two terms – from November 17, 2003 until January 3, 2011.

In other words, he stepped down as governor 14 months before his status was erected in 2012! The fake story’s chronology is complete nonsense.

Fact #9 : Fake Story Has Been Circulating Since January 2018

This fake story appears to be created around January 2018, when it first went viral.

Since then, it has periodically gone viral over the years on social media – Twitter and Facebook, as well as on WhatsApp.
