However, netizens are taking aim at Wang Xiaofei for his immature accusations at Barbie’s infidelity based purely on online conjecture. Pointing out that Barbie had suffered a miscarriage of her third child at five months plus; the former couple had also appeared on variety show Happiness Trio <幸福三重奏> together then, despite Barbie not yet having fully recuperated.

“Wang Xiaofei is really…he doesn’t have an ounce of wisdom,”
“Really feel that Wang Xiaofei isn’t too smart, taking rumors for the truth, I thought he’d have some astounding proof, turns out it was all heresy,”
“His mother’d be better off giving birth to a piece of BBQ pork,”
Agitated, netizens started suggesting that Zhang Lan cut off ties with her son. “Go have another child, or adopt one…”, “She would have been better off in her twilight years with a daughter instead”, “this nincompoop is too ridiculous”, some of the comments read.
In response to the cheating allegations, Barbie posted a simple update at 6pm on November 23. It is difficult to maintain or end a 10-year marriage, she expressed, writing “I have no energy and can’t be bothered to cheat.”
