I’m beginning to think that some people believe that the internet is outside the law what with all the bashing that’s taking place, good thing more and more celebs are standing up for themselves. Wasn’t it just yesterday when Tan Songyun‘s camp took countermeasures against online slanderers? Well, today it’s Yang Zi‘s turn!
Since hitting the jackpot in Ashes of Love, Yang Zi’s fame increased tenfold but with it comes a price. Aside from her growing fanbase, the adorable actress also acquired some haters who seem to make it their mission to hate her by hurling malicious and hurtful words.
Yang Zi’s studio released a statement saying that they really didn’t want to cause a distraction from the current coronavirus epidemic but they are left with no choice but to use the internet as their means to convey their message to those who are attacking the actress and her family which according to the law, is an infringement of their reputation rights. They ask for the malicious comments to be deleted and stopped, for related mediums to exercise better control to prevent this from happening and also warned those who are spreading false rumors that evidence is being obtained as they pursue legal actions.
Fans of the actress are delighted to know that her studio is stepping up to protect their precious idol. Although it is not disclosed in the statement provided by the studio, it’s speculated that all the hate stems from the leaked pictures of Yang Zi with leading man Xiao Zhan from their upcoming drama The Oath of Love. The snapshots mostly show the two kissing and acting sweet causing online netizens to get mad, although if you ask me, their anger is unfounded.
Mean comments such as she is too ugly or that she’s just using this so she can trend online again flooded the comments section of the internet. Ugh, if there is anyone who should be mad, it’s Yang Zi and Xiao Zhan because the pictures were leaked without their consent! It’s like spoiling parts of the drama already.
I hope Yang Zi’s camp won’t back down so they can show these slanderers who they’re messing with.
