Claim: Singer Jose Mari Chan is endorsing a diabetes product named Golden Insu, which claims to be the “number 1 diabetes cure in the Philippines.”
Why we fact-checked this: The Facebook video containing the claim has 106,000 views.
What the video shows: A photo of Chan allegedly holding the product can be seen starting at the 2:41 timestamp of the video.
Not authorized: In a phone interview, Chan denied endorsing the product.
“I’m not an endorser of that company…They never contacted me. The one that I’m endorsing is Lady’s Choice mayonnaise, Uniqlo, but not this company that you mentioned, so it’s not authorized,” Chan told Rappler.
Previous false claims: Rappler has previously debunked a similar misleading ad that used a stock photo of a famous Japanese doctor who died in 2017.
While there is no reported cure for diabetes, ads promoting supposed diabetes treatments continue to circulate, often using the names or photos of renowned individuals without their consent.
