After false news about his death circulated online, Gab Valenciano has decided to “focus on the bigger picture” of the issue instead of reacting negatively to it.
Gab, who has previously revealed his struggles with his mental health, took to Facebook to share the screenshot of the video claiming he passed away which took the top spot of YouTube’s trending list.
“I could easily look at this and react negatively, but I choose to focus on the bigger picture,” he began on his post. “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 continued, “This may be fake news, but the mere fact that it is currently trending on the top spot means it is a real issue that thousands and even millions are going through, bringing to light the urgency of the matter. 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.”
It was back in May 2019 when Gab opened up about his “darkest year” caused by his controversial split with his ex-wife due to his infidelity and how he has been making conscious efforts to bounce back since.
He ended his post with a note to his critics and those responsible for the fake news. “To those people who have been posting fake news about me, may God bless you. Every person deals with hardship differently, this could be your way of dealing with your pain. So with that I pray for you,” he wrote.
