Viral Story About Kris Aquino Diamond Necklace Dug

Sometime on October 2016, a viral story about Kris Aquino wearing Imelda Marcos’ diamond necklace topped social media and was shared more than five thousand.

The Queen of All Media reacted and issued an official statement denying the rumor.

In an Abs-CBN news on October 2016, TV host Kris Aquino said could no longer stand rumors that she wore a necklace previously owned by former first lady Imelda Marcos – at an APEC event, no less.

Aquino said it was her sister Viel and designer JC Buendia who showed her Facebook posts about her supposedly wearing Mrs. Marcos’s diamond necklace, which is part of the ill-gotten wealth of the Marcos family, in last year’s APEC welcome dinner for economic leaders.

“The necklace supposedly belonged to Mrs. Marcos and I was brazen enough to wear them for the APEC DINNER. Duh?” noted Aquino, the youngest sister of former President Benigno Aquino III.

“The necklace I wore was made from cubic zirconia and silver – hindi po DIAMONDS (not diamonds),” she added. “In other words, fake sila although Bottega Veneta naman (In other words, they’re fake, but they’re from Bottega Veneta).”

“Enough! And the TRUTH is on my side – including credit card receipts.”

The issue eventually died and hasn’t been revisited last year until recently when a fresh fake news circulated, saying the Supreme Court has ordered Miss Aquino to return the necklace she borrowed from Malacañang.

Apparently, the troll who wrote the deceiving article is not informed that the issue has long been forgotten and the original source was actually from a fake news.

Despite Aquino’s effort to answer the issue, Internet trolls continue to dig controversial issues that they could use to make money.

It is uncertain how far this new fake news can reach but at the time of this writing, several posts on Facebook already indicated that the story has already been shared more than 300 times.

Lawmakers last week tackled fake news but it seems they are just wasting tax money, as most of the fake news and fabricated stories are created by Mr. Duterte’s supporters.
