Political tensions between Taiwan and China have been pretty intense after the inaugural speech of Taiwan’s newest President Lai Ching Te saying the two countries are not subordinate to each other further fanned the flames. Seemingly in retaliation, China struck back with a harsher stance: “China will eventually achieve complete reunification” with trending hashtags on Chinese social media bearing the message: “Taiwan has never been a country and will never be one.”

There’s a List Going Around

Mainland Chinese celebs showed their support by reposting the hashtag on social media, but pressure turned to Taiwanese celebs as C-Netz started making a tally of who has not spoken up. In the past few days, over 40 Taiwanese celebs, particularly those working in the mainland have also shared the message, and those who have not done so were put under scrutiny in China.

Amongst those Netizens put on blast was Wallace Huo whom they claimed has not yet expressed his stance on the matter. After all, other Taiwanese colleagues in the industry like Rainie Yang, Michelle Chen, Patty Hou, Nana Ouyang, Joe Chen, Angela Chang, Lai Guanlin just to name a few, have all reposted and shared the original post from broadcasting network CCTV on their social media pages.

CCTV Wallace Huo

NO surprises there that Wallace and his wife Ruby Lin even made the list of “delinquent artists” compiled by mainland Netizens naming and shaming Taiwanese artists who haven’t expressed their support for CCTV’s newest campaign. As one mainland Netizen put it, “if you don’t express your stance, you don’t get to make money from the mainland.” Indeed some even threatened to boycott his upcoming C-drama The Tale of Rose 玫瑰的故事 starring Crystal Liu Yifei and Tong Dawei, which is expected to air soon.

The thing is, others pointed out there’s really no way for the 44-year-old actor to “repost” anything since he already shut down his social media pages ages ago. Wallace claimed he wanted to communicate with fans “in the purest way possible – through his film and TV work,” hence the reason for shutting down his Studio’s Weibo and Facebook accounts six years ago. So how then is he expected to make his stance sans social media, many asked.
