Trevor Gumbi is NOT dead!
South African actor Trevor Gumbi has set the record straight after a fake news site claimed that the actor had passed on.
According to the website, Gumbi "was involved in a tragic car crash that happened on the road from Johannesburg to Pretoria. The accident occurred when the car he was driving lost control and overturned 4 times, according to the police."
Taking to social media, Gumbi hit back at the report saying that the fake news left his blind mother in a state of panic.
"I ain't dead guys! Family and friends, y'all can stop calling. These are just some sick ass motherf***ers reporting lies," he wrote.
He went on to say, "The worst part of this FAKE news story reporting that I died, is the fact that my mom, who is blind, had to hear from people calling her and she had to go through all those emotions before being able to get to a phone to call me."
Gumbi lashed out at the publication who reported the fake news, saying that they should think about the consequences and how it affects the next person when reporting these lies.
"Fake media, sometimes you've gotta take a minute to think about how your "stories" affect the people around your target. Not cool ! Not cool at ALL !"
