This weekend, the internet was a buzz that popular comedian Gabriel Iglesias had died from unknown causes, that were suspected to be related to diabetes. The false reports even claimed to have quotes from Iglesias' mourning family.
On Nov. 2, Fluffy took matters into his own hands by posting a message on Facebook in which he recapped his life, gave instructions on how to handle his death and joked that he no longer needs to worry about his diet. “Well, since I'm dead now I guess I can start eating carbs again. It was a good life. Had a great childhood and an amazing career. I traveled the world and got drunk in all 50 states, woooooo! I made a lot of people happy over the years and pissed off most my ex girlfriends in the process. Can't win them all, right,” he wrote. “Soooo I guess I want to be buried somewhere people can visit my grave, put pretty flowers and pour diet cokes on my plot. I'm gonna want my estate to buy both plots next to me so that even in death I can stretch my legs.”
Iglesias went on to thank his friends, family and fans for everything that they have done for him over the years. He states, “To my family, the ones who still spoke to me til my last day I say thank u for being so understanding and loving me no matter how long I was on the road doing what I had to do to make everyone's lives better. To the family I no longer spoke to I say, I'm sorry for not being what u wanted me to be. To all my friends, thank u for not telling me I died. U guys always keep news that bums me out away from me and I love u for it. To my fans I say thank u so much for letting me make u laugh all these years. It's the most amazing feeling in the world.”
In closing, Iglesias went on to share how this false-death experience has encouraged him to stop stressing and live in the moment. “If this death hoax someone did about my ass has taught me anything it's that I need to enjoy more moments in life and not get so stressed out about things I can't change, especially with my self. I have people who care about me that I made happy in my life and in 'the end' that's all that's really gonna matter,” Iglesias posted. “Thank u to everyone who texted, called and e-mailed asking if I died. I love u all!!!!”
