The rumor suggesting that the plane that crashed and left seven dead, in the interior of São Paulo, this Tuesday (14), would belong to the duo Simone and Simaria was denied by the singers. According to the sisters, the misunderstanding gave them a scare and also their family and friends.
“I don’t know if because the abbreviation behind it is SM, but on our jet it’s S&S, by Simone & Simaria. They got confused and this news started to spread that we were inside the jet,” reported Simone to Fátima Bernades, during the program Meeting this Tuesday.
Simaria said that the two received calls from friends crying, thinking that they were among the victims of the fall.
“We always say one thing: whoever has a promise doesn’t die, we still have a lot to fulfill, in the name of Jesus,” said the artist.
However, the older sister’s speech was criticized on social networks, in which netizens classified the statement as insensitive.
Soon after, Simone sympathized with the families of the victims who died in the air incident. “We want to show solidarity with the whole family of the people who were on that plane. It must be an unbearable sadness.”
