25 Sep – Gab Valenciano recently took to social media to express his thoughts about the previous death hoax that was targeted against him.

The performer, who shared the previous post about his supposed death on Facebook on 23 September, wrote, "I could easily look at this and react negatively, but I choose to focus on the bigger picture."

"I am blessed to say that I no longer have thoughts about ending my life, instead, save as many as I can through these experiences. It says in the word that what the enemy uses for evil, God will use for good," he added.

Although it was just fake news, Valenciano stated that the mere fact that it's trending on the top spot means it's a real issue that thousands and even millions are going through.

"This will cause people to go on my social media platforms, hopefully see the original post I posted and be inspired and blessed by it. At the end of the day, I will always choose love over hate," he continued.

Valenciano also decided to take the issue calmly, even prayed for those who posted the death hoax.

"Every person deals with hardship differently, this could be your way of dealing with your pain. So with that I pray for you," he added.
