Angelababy has been blacklisted in China after attending BLACKPINK Lisa’s provocative Crazy Horse performance in Paris in September. Despite having 100 million followers on Weibo, Angelababy was banned from updating her account due to “violation of relevant laws and regulations.” As Angelababy’s controversy has not settled down, popular Chinese variety show Keep Running <奔跑吧> has also dropped her from its new season.
Keep Running <奔跑吧> recently announced its new season with a list of regular cast members, including Li Chen(李晨), Ryan Cheng(鄭愷), Yi Sha (沙溢), Bai Lu (白鹿), Zhou Shen (周深), Fan Chengcheng(范丞丞), Song Yuqi (宋雨琦), and Zhang Zhenyuan (張真源). Although Angelababy has been a regular since the show’s first season in 2014, she is not included in the new season.
Netizens expressed their pity at Angelababy’s disappearance from filming. “Her name won’t appear on the show anymore. I guess they gave her some respect by not deleting her past scenes” and “It looks like the soft launch of being blacklisted.”
It is rumored Angelababy made multiple attempts to restart her career. Although her social media account is still banned, it has not been deleted by Weibo. It is speculated that Angelababy is temporarily banned and uncertain if she can make a successful comeback.
