Some pointed out that the news had not been carried on any major Brazilian network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of a television host of Sabrina Sato's stature would be major news across networks.
A recent poll conducted for the Celebrity Post shows that a large majority (65%) of respondents think those Sabrina Sato death rumors are not funny anymore.
