No expensive jet: Henry Sy newest subject of internet hoax


Forbes? richest Filipino Henry Sy Sr. is the newest subject of fake news recently circulating on social media. Good thing his flagship company SM was prompt in clarifying the matter.

In an official statement posted on its Facebook and Twitter accounts, SM Supermalls denied an article saying that Sy bought a $26-million worth private jet as a gift to President Rodrigo Duterte.

The article came from the dubious website and was shared on social media by netizens and various pro-Duterte online groups.

The article said Sy bought a Bombardier Global Express XRS jet powered by Rolls-Royce engines as he supposedly previously promised Duterte a ?huge surprise? should the latter win the May 2016 presidential elections

?Mr. Henry Sy has not bought any jet plane. He also was not born on Christmas day as the article says,? SM?s statement read.

Henry Sy joined the growing list of personalities becoming the subjects of fake news online, among them were Vice President Leni Robredo, former President and incumbent Manila mayor Joseph Estrada, Sen. Rissa Hontiveros and Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach.

Authorities better do something about this!
