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 : Arnold Schwarzenegger Is Still Alive + Well!
Arnold Schwarzenegger (born Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger on 30 March, 1968) is very much still alive, as of Thursday, 4 May 2023!
That was when he posted a video trailer for an interview he did with Chef Jose Andres. In that video , you can see that Arnold is still very much alive. On the same day, he also posted multiple tweets on his official Twitter account.
These personal and public posts appear days and weeks after people started claiming that Arnold Schwarzenegger died from a heart attack!
The day before that, his son-in-law, Chris Pratt, spoke at the IPIC Theatre Fulton Market in New York City, about his relationships with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Arnold’s support means the world to me on a couple different levels. Just being his son-in-law and being part of his family, it obviously means a lot to have his support.
But then on another level, just being somebody who grew up loving his movies, the big action hero — I dreamed of being Commando and dreamed of being the soldier from Predator, and I loved Terminator. So him to give me kudos for going out and being on the marquee is really kind of mind-blowing.
Obviously, Chris Pratt would not be gushing about his father-in-law if he had actually died in hospital from a heart attack! In fact, Arnold Schwarzenegger just congratulated him on his movie, Guards of the Galaxy Vol. 2!
I saw #GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol3 last night and WOW. @prattprattpratt, you crushed it. A non-stop, perfect mix of comedy and action. I loved it and I’m very, very proud of you.

Fact #2 : 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 #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.

Fact #4 : Arnold Schwarzenegger Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too
This Arnold Schwarzenegger death hoax is, ironically, also being driven by a fake fact check article by the MediaMass Project, which keeps “updating” the dates in their fake fact check article:
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. Thankfully, the actor best known for his roles in Total Recall or The Terminator is alive and well.
Rumors of the actor’s alleged demise gained traction on Wednesday after a ‘R.I.P. Arnold Schwarzenegger’ Facebook page attracted nearly one million of ‘likes’. Those who read the ‘About’ page were given a believable account of the American actor’s passing:
“At about 11 a.m. ET on Wednesday (May 03, 2023), our beloved actor Arnold Schwarzenegger passed away. Arnold Schwarzenegger was born on July 30, 1947 in Thal. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.”
Hundreds of fans immediately started writing their messages of condolence on the Facebook page, expressing their sadness that the talented 75-year-old actor, politician, business man and bodybuilder was dead. And as usual, Twittersphere was frenzied over the death hoax.
Where as some trusting fans believed the post, others were immediately skeptical of the report, perhaps learning their lesson from the huge amount of fake death reports emerging about celebrities over recent months. Some pointed out that the news had not been carried on any major American network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of an actor of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s stature would be major news across networks.
Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Arnold Schwarzenegger 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 Arnold’s unnamed rep confirming that he is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other celebrities whose reps MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Celine Dion, Cristiano Ronaldo, Justin Bieber, Simon Cowell, Harrison Ford, Sylvester Stallone, Tom Hanks, Dolly Parton, Lucy Liu, and Melanie Laurent.
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.
