Eraserheads frontman Ely Buendia has been the victim of fake news countless of times. Over the weekend, the Filipino rock legend has been plagued with "news" of his demise through a fake website with a fake ABS-CBN News link.
It's a good thing true-blooded Ely Buendia fans were quick to dispel the rumours while some actually thought the news was legit.
Even fellow OPM artist Jugs Jugueta of Itchyworms came to his good friend's defense.
Ely dismissed the news of his death on Twitter, saying "Sa gumawa ng latest death hoax ko…If ever I actually die, I’ll let you know."
