36 year old Kim Jong-un of North Korea is rumored to be dead.

Vice director of HKSTV Hong Kong Satellite Television Shijian Xingzou said a ‘very solid source’ told her Kim had died.

Her post on the Chinese messaging app Weibo has been shared widely on social media, according to a report in the International Business Times.

Just yesterday Japanese magazine Shukan Gendai reported he was in a ‘vegetative state’ after a delay in a simple heart procedure left him severely ill.

Continued shady reports about his well-being has sparked  international speculation on the true health status of the 36-year old dictator, while there has been no confirmation of the Kim’s death, #KimJongUndead has been trending on Twitter.

A Chinese medical expert who knows much about the situation told Shukan Genda a stent procedure was needed and was done either badly or not quickly enough, causing further complications on the dictator’s health.
