As angry as he seemed, Huang Yiqing (黃毅清) has decided to put aside his pride and apologize for the erratic Weibo rants against wife Crystal Huang (黃奕).
Married in 2012, Crystal and Yiqing were a picture perfect couple. The two welcomed their daughter in January 2013 and the family appeared loving in public. Crystal decreased her workload to care for her baby, and on Weibo, she often shared her thoughts about motherhood and cried over news of abused children.
On November 25, Yiqing shocked the world when he fiercely criticized Crystal online, seemingly determined to destroy her public image. He accused her of being selfish and vain, claiming that she is emotionally abusive and often manipulates others by playing victim. He also attacked her personally, saying she is terrible at math and concluded that she is simply crazy.
To further support his claims, Yiqing later uploaded a video of what sounded like a heated argument with his wife. Amidst the shouting matches and the baby’s cries, Crystal had apparently taken out her frustration on her daughter, dropping the child roughly on the floor. Slightly past midnight, Yiqing once again vented on Weibo, demanding Crystal to return home to sign what was implied to be divorce papers, declaring that he could no longer tolerate the situation.
The public is abuzz with speculation about their marriage troubles. Regardless of the truth, many find Yiqing’s online attacks tasteless and some are skeptical about his true intentions. A few netizens believe that the recorded scene was staged, alleging that Yiqing had purposefully angered Crystal in order to capture her at her worst.
Less than twenty-fours later, Yiqing returned to Weibo, this time to delete all of his explosive posts. In their place, he posted a photo of himself carrying his daughter over his shoulders. In a much calmer and reflective tone, Yiqing apologized for his previous outburst: “I thought I was being the ideal father, protecting my daughter. Unintentionally I failed to acknowledge my true responsibilities as the head of household. I thought I was being bold, but I ended up hurting my most beloved other half. Thank you for waking me up… I love you. My other half, I’m sorry!”
