Winter Begonia actor Yin Zheng recently found himself in a wee bit of a bind after cameras caught him slapping away a fan’s phone that came a little bit too close for comfort.
In the short clip, fans and passersby can be seen taking videos of the actor as he was quickly passing through the set accompanied by his manager and an assistant when a hand shoving a mobile phone quite close to the actor’s face suddenly pops into the screen. Yin Zheng can then be seen swatting the phone away.
As soon as the clip started making the rounds online, critical comments from angry fans and Netizens started flooding in. To clear up any more misunderstandings about the incident, Yin Zheng’s Studio had this to say: “.. some Netizens published a video of “Yin Zheng beating a passersby”. In fact, whilst the clip was being recorded, the passerby suddenly used his mobile phone to take a close-up shot of Mr. Yin Zheng. He subconsciously fended it off and did not act aggressively.”
Aside from the clarification, they also asked Netizens not to blow things out of context. “For a long time, Mr. Yin Zheng has always implemented a sincere, kind, and courageous attitude in dealing with things. He is serious about filming and hopes to give back to everyone through better works. The malicious remarks that have circulated recently have negatively affected Mr. Yin Zheng’s reputation and social image. Our studio appeals to everyone to chase their favourite stars responsibly and to jointly maintain a healthy online environment.”
I would slap it away too…Such Rude “fans” Those are not fans, they are just leeches.
im sorry to say this but Netizens are nasty and then they’ll turn around and blame the actor/actress. there bully’s them self’s ( someone anyone needs to put blame on Netizens for being down right nasty with anything they do )
What he did doesn’t look aggressive enough to even remove the phone from the fan’s hand, I wonder why “netizens” seem to be getting worked up over small things these days.
The stupid phone was almost in his face and naturally anyone would slap it away.
If I had a phone that far up in my face and my personal zone I would slap that phone away too
Who wouldn’t smack away something shoved into your face? How come people are not calling out the fan for being so rude and obnoxious?
that actually looks sped up and makes Yin Zheng seem more “aggressive” than he actually was. But that phone looks like it could’ve hit his face if he didn’t block it!
What some ‘fans’ forget is that actors are also human beings. If someone shoved a phone in my face I would slap it away too. That wasn’t a fan it was a rude and disrespectful person thinking they were entitled to do what they liked to a fellow human being!!!
Funny. A male celebrity taking away or deliberately destroying a person’s property is a drama stereotype. I find the behaviour repulsive, but male leads do it and still remain dreamy idols of women’s hearts. And when a real actor just waves his hand to discourage a fan that doesn’t respect his personal space, it causes public outrage. Fascinating…
