Netizens took to social media to confirm a report that Bong Revilla committed a suicide inside PNP Custodial Center in Camp Crame.
It turns out that Bong Revilla, who is being held for plunder and graft cases, is a victim of another death hoax.
It’s an odd of the digital age that netizens must take to social media to assert … other’s existence.
Bong Revilla, the first of the 3 big senators being arrested for cases related to pork barrel scam, was victimized of ‘suicide’ hoax courtesy of an Internet death hoax, that weird, undying racket beloved by spammers, Internet cons, and people with nothing better to do.
Who starts this latest death hoax? And what, exactly, is the point? Is Bong Revilla, who had many complaints inside jail, has been killed?
The answer is nope, Bong Revilla is alive and well. He’s merely the latest victim of the celebrity death hoax, which has previously nabbed Jackie Chan, Justin Bieber and Bill Cosby, among many, many others.
Will Jinggoy Estrada be the next death hoax victim since he is already under the police custody? We’ll find out and see in the coming days.
