Sunshine Cruz dispels death hoax: ‘Buhay na buhay po ako’
Sunshine Cruz assured her fans that she is still alive after rumors of her death circulated on various online groups in Facebook.
The actress disproved the death hoax on her own page yesterday, Sept. 4, alongside screenshots of the false report.
The report stated that Cruz was found dead in her room and that authorities were able to retrieve security footage before the supposed crime.
It came from a blog titled newsaccesstoday.blogspot.com and featured a portrait of Cruz superimposed on a photo of a policeman crouching beside a bodybag. The site also posed as GMA’s “Unang Balita” by using the program’s logos.

Cruz caught wind of the hoax after her fans sent her screenshots of them via Instagram. The false post was shared by a certain Rbb Savage, who spread it on different buy-and-sell groups online.
“Hindi po ito totoo! Buhay na buhay po ako (This is not true! I am very much alive),” the actress stated while asking her fans to report the said profile.
Aside from Cruz, fellow artist Michael V. also became a victim of a death hoax last July, just after he revealed that he contracted COVID-19. The actor has since recovered from the disease. /ra
