• Some people think fan fictions are ok. I think they are ok to certain degree only. In Xiao Zhan's case it was outragous. It was sickening. I don't think any actor/actress will be ok with that when he/she is being portrayed like that.
  • @dramas4me They made him a female in a work of FICTION, if I were him, why would I care? The story was posted on a FANFIC site with probably the proper disclaimers and tags...no one should be angry about something like that, especially not him. As an actor he would probably one day be called upon to dress up as a female for some reason or another (like in a role for comedic purposes or whatever), what's the big deal? For someone who campaigned to get the role of Wei Wuxian, which is a character in a well-known BL novel, I would be shocked if he's that conservative and uptight. I think you can give him more credit than that. It's already enough that the Chinese government is policing people's creative freedom, I don't think we as fans in a fandom should do more of that. If a fictional story offends someone, no one is forcing them to read it. They can just move on. Easy as that. I would like to think Xiao Zhan is intelligent and open-minded enough to think the same way. It's too bad SOME of his fans weren't intelligent enough to do that (for the record, not all of his fans are crazy, some are actually nice and sane), and that's how this whole mess was created. The blame lies wholly on those particular crazy, policing fans and them alone, no one else.
  • @dalebaines I agree with what you said about what XZ should do and of course not apologizing, but i still blame the fanfiction person. The crazy fans have to be responsible for their own actions - not him. You wouldn't say the same thing if it happened to you personally. He is a guy and this person made him a female. It's just wrong period.
  • @camille66 Thank you! It makes me so mad that someone like him can get hurt like that. There is no justice at all. I hope he will be strong and comes back even stronger to show them what he made of. I'm sure he knows who are his true friends now. Yes. I will always support him because he deserves it.
  • @dramas4me The one should be blamed is his fans. Fanfiction is there long time ago.
  • @dramas4me Blaming the fanfic writer is the type of thinking that started this whole mess. Suing the fanfic writer would not have earned him any points and would have made matters worse. I'm sure you know fanfic is all about fiction and fantasy, they are not to be taken seriously as factual account. It's because his so called die hard fans didn't even have the brain cells to understand the difference between fiction and reality is what's led to this big mess. I would still like to believe that he is the victim in all of this, that it’s a matter of his more crazy, obsessive fans acting on their own, resulting in the overextreme backlash that dragged him into it. As much as I love AO3, fanfics and personal freedoms, the backlash HAS been completely out of proportion…people were calling for his death ffs. If he really had no say in the matter, then he’s a true victim and now his career could be irreversibly destroyed. If things really are as dire as this report is making it out to be, where even his shitty management company is reviewing his contract (even though their weak AF PR statement didn’t help him at all), then I think it’s about time that maybe he should find a means to speak out on his own and just clear things up. Not to apologize per se, but at least to say where he stands on all this controversy. I think most would appreciate some word from him. Hell, he could even say something like, “look, I wasn’t thrilled about my image being used in that way (in the fanfic), it does creep me out, but I didn’t intend for my fans to react the way they did and to cause so much heartache for people…I will always appreciate my fans but it hurts me if their actions hurt others and while I have no control over them as individuals, I can only hope that if people want to continue to support me, please think about your actions and not hurt others on my behalf. Sorry it has taken me so long to say something, I had no choice in the matter until now.” Something like that. If he can’t say it on his weibo cuz his management company is holding him hostage, then have a “friend” leak out a statement or something. I think there’s still a way to repair his career but he better act fast if things has really gotten this bad.
  • I think this whole thing is so unfair and stupid. XZ didn't even do anything. I think the person who should be blamed is the person who started that fanfiction. He should sue that person for damaging his name, image and his career. It's scary that someone can just easily destroy his career - how hard he worked for all these years. He is so talented and such a good guy. I have never liked an artist like him. Like many people i started to like him after watching "The Untamed" and i started to find his other works like "Our Song" and his earlier days with the boy group (X-NINE) He is a talented actor, great singer & dancer, so likable because of his talents and sweet personality. Why can't good producers, directors, etc. help him out? I think it would be great investments for them? Yes. I know there are plenty of actors out there, but how often can they find someone like Xiao Zhan?
  • I think she looks prettier now than before.
  • Some of you defended Mario Ho and here is why I think what he did was wrong. 1. Two wrongs don't make one right. 2. There are ways you can deal with the racist remark, but not making yourself look bad and stupid. He even said he represented China. That's ever worst. 3. He can point out what Jesse Watters did wrong - offending the whole country. There was no need to talk about his parents. He should have done it with class and not stooping to Jesse Watters' level.
  • @rika I can't agree more with you on this. He can counter it back, but not that way. We don't stoop low like the other party's level.
  • @dramas4me Agree completely! I think people who hate Xiao Zhan are pretending to say they hate his fan thus hate him to have an excuse. He is too popular. Whatever he endorses, others won't be able to endorse anymore. Yes it is crazy fans behind it, but not him. They should be angry at his fans ofc. But being angry at him when he has no control is wrong. But it's also easy that he gains competitors and rivals everywhere so I won't quite believe people are that blind to hate him for things he didn't do too. No matter how far the fan fiction gone, they are only fanfic. Will they get the chance to become monetized and turned into real TV shows? The fans should ignore, maybe they are right that the author is bad but it's not true that the story will have any affect Xiao Zhan at all. If the author's story is truly good, he will not need to depend on Xiao Zhan's popularity. He's just using Xiao Zhan's image for his character so people will read his story. He couldn't rely completely on the story itself. Fans didn't have to care about such person.
  • I think that it's so unfair that people are angry at Xiao Zhan and hurting him. He can't control the crazy fans. These fan fictions or MVs have gone too far also. It took him years to get where he is today. Some people never think about how their actions can hurt or destroy someone. He is so talented and lovable. I hope the normal fans will support him and he will survive this. Here is a YouTube video that explains the situation in details: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-YuIIhn900&t=482s
  • @jayne Thanks for the details of their lives. I didn't know who she was or who he is. I do feel sorry for the woman. This is what I found about her. Sometimes I think too much money can be a bad thing. https://www.scmp.com/article/413184/theresa-po-left-estate-1b-children
  • @dramas4me Yes, it's like a bad movie based on a true story. haha lol...What in the world!!
  • @wm2017 They deserved each other. What else can we say right?
  • @jayne Thanks for your reply. I think a man, man would not do that. It's so tacky/tasteless to consider that "fee".
  • @dramas4me Exactly!! WTH..What a petty male escort. haha lol.... But then again, what kind of woman is she to have gotten away from a cheating ex to a dude who wanted a 3 some relationship? Oh Lord!! haha...What a hot mess!!
  • @dramas4me Jeff demanded the $1 million HKD after one of his breakups with Teresa, who refused to pay him. The amount allegedly included all the expenses he paid while dating her, including his charges for sexual fees. As the amount wasn't astronomical, he likely just did it out of anger. There was some name calling between the two in the press, but Teresa realized that Jeff was unstable at the time. They actually reconciled again, but eventually broke up nevertheless. Jeff is one of the more controversial figures in HK entertainment...there's more to his story which we can cover in an upcoming article.
  • @jayne Wow! What kind of a man is this guy? "After their split, Jeff pressed Teresa to pay him $1 million HKD, which includes sexual fees." By doing that than he already considered hiimself as a paid escort/prostitute.
  • @dramas4me Mike had surgery on his eyes, lips and nose. All them getting PS like crazy. Him, Jiro, Show Lou, Joe Cheng, Aaron Yan, just to name a few, have botched their faces.
