Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin poked fun at internet hoaxsters and social-media sites that had proclaimed him dead by humorously demonstrating he was still alive.

The 34-year-old actor took to his band's social media page and shared some funny photos of him to dispel rumours of his death, reported Ace Showbiz.

One photo uploaded on his band's Twitter page The Pizza Underground shows him smiling while holding a bottle of soda.

"We're on tour you silly people," the caption read.

Another photo uploaded by the band shows Culkin playing dead in his bandmate's arms.

"Weekend at bernies with @anchovywarhol #greenroom," read the caption, referring to 1989's comedy Weekend at Bernie's in which two people try to convince people their boss is alive.

Another photo taken on stage shows the band during a performance at the Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas.

"Performing last night at the Belmont, Bernie style @funfunfunfest #imalive," they wrote.

The Texas-based band also retweeted a fan's post which read, "Macauley's first words: 'I'm alive!' #pizzaunderground #FFFfest."

False story about Culkin's death emerged via screengrab of what appeared to be a cable news broadcast. According to the fake news, the star was found dead in his Manhattan apartment on Friday.
