The popular urban legend about John Lloyd Cruz and Shaina Magdayao went viral on social media again after the two met in Switzerland during the premiere of their movie, Essential Truths of the Lake.
Many netizens made comments that were related to the popular myth about John Lloyd and Shaina, who were reportedly rushed to a popular hospital while being covered in blankets after their bodies were ‘locked’ in each other.
What was Shaina’s response to the issue?
Shaina spoke about the issue during a press conference in 2010, saying that the myth would be easily proven if the incident really happened.
She admitted that the urban myth about her and John Lloyd was one of the most ‘outrageous’ issues in the showbiz industry.
“I would like to take this opportunity. Hindi po totoo ‘yun. Nakakalungkot na mayroong mga tao na, Diyos ko hindi ko alam kung saang parte ng isip nila nakuha ‘yun,” said Shaina.
According to her, if the incident was real, people could have been shown physical evidence already.
“May mga nagsasabi na confirmed daw, may proof pa. Asan ‘yung proof niyo?! Sa hi-tech na panahon natin, kung may picture dapat kumalat na. Kung na rush ka sa E.R, hindi ba dapat mayroong mga forms na dapat i-fill up, bayaran,” said Shaina. “Eh wala naman maipakita na nandun ‘yung pangalan namin. Hindi rin nagpapunta ng doktor sa bahay. Nakakalungkot na naisipan pa kami ng mga ganung bagay.”
“Kung iisipin natin, kahit naman sa normal na tao, kung totoo nga namang nangyayari ‘yung ganung bagay, pupunta ka ba sa ospital? Ano pa kaya kami na public figures na kahit anong gawin namin nababalitaan ng tao? I think walang ka sense-sense ‘yun. Hindi nga natin alam kung nangyayari siya sa totoong buhay,” she added.
Despite the explanation by Shaina, many netizens still believed that the incident really happened.
