After the TVB Anniversary Awards, Benjamin Yuen‘s (袁偉豪) tired appearance was harshly criticized by netizens who said he got “uglier” after getting married with rich heiress Bowie Cheung (張寶兒). Firing back with an angry response on Instagram, Benjamin defended himself and also shot down all the negative comments that have grown over the past three years.
He wrote, “Everyone will become old, as they gain more ability, their responsibilities also increase. I work hard to earn money to take care of my family, my wife, and to pay off my mortgage. It is normal that I look a little tired. Thank you for your criticism, I hope that you will continue to criticize me, continue to say that I am a soft rice king, continue to say I am a gigolo, continue to say that I rely on connections, and continue to say that my acting is bad. Your negative comments will only give me motivation to continue to improve myself! I will continue to build my life.”
Benjamin has a history of facing off with netizens. Since 2017 until now, he has fought with netizens eight times and their exchanges often spice up entertainment news. In the past, Benjamin has been very stubborn in his personal stance and could not stomach the online attacks and would reply, “You do not have the right to comment on my character.”
In 2018, Benjamin complained about a moviegoer eating nachos loudly inside a theater. The dispute escalated with a theater employee complaining about the actor’s rudeness online, and Benjamin eventually defending himself on social media.
Though getting married with Bowie has generated another sensitive, recurring topic for netizens to pick on, Benjamin vows to turn the negativity into motivating himself to do better going forward.
