Last year, Kris Wu (Wu Yifan) was caught in a scandal and subsequently arrested on suspicion of rape. He has disappeared from the pubic eye since then, but netizens discovered recent activities on his social media.
On July 28, a new profile pic and a cover photo of a car which appears to be taken from a screencap of someone’s iPhone photos were uploaded to his Facebook account. Eagle-eyed netizens have singled out one particular photo on the left corner that seems to show a long-haired woman with her back to the camera. People are confused with some leaving comments asking if Kris Wu is out of jail. Some wondered about the woman’s identity and also asked if it’s really Kris updating the account or whether it’s been hacked.
Just over a month ago, Chaoyang District People’s Court in Beijing held a trial on June 10 to hear the case of defendant Wu Yifan. Due to the victim’s privacy, the case was tried in a closed court. Back then, Chinese media reported that he was also being tried for the crime of group licentiousness.
