In a video, he says, “Hello to all Michael Jackson fans, come and watch me perform at Hollywood Pattaya on December 23rd. I love you guys and see you there. I am Sergio Cortes, see you soon.”
Fans flooded the clip’s comments area demanding he proves he’s not the real Jackson.
Cortes voice and accent however sound different from that of the “King of Pop”.
On his Instagram page after reviewing the video a fan wrote, “I almost dropped my phone. This is a little scary though, that’s him y’all.”
Another said, “This is CREEPY” and “Creepy asf!!!!”
One fan wrote, “Noooooo f*cking way! I’m shock.. I thought this was a throwback video until he started talking.” Others joked that MJ himself is back, with one remarking, “MICHAEL is BACK! Praise Jesus, Mary and Joseph!”
