Deric Wan (溫兆倫) is known for his fiery temper when provoked. He once admitted that he is someone who will repay others’ favors, but will always remember others’ inflictions upon him as well. Deric recently lashed out at a netizen on his official Weibo page and threatened to pursue legal action for defamation.
According to news reports, the netizen accused Deric for using an Internet bot to increase the sharing count of his messages so Deric’s Weibo would appear more popular than it really was. The user commented on one of Deric’s earlier Weibo posts, writing, “Can’t believe that a has-been artist used a Weibo bot to increase the share counts of his messages, just to show that his Weibo is exceptionally popular. It’s scornful.”
Deric took a screenshot of the user’s message with his phone and attached the picture to his post on Weibo, writing, “I live a just and honorable life and I play things fairly. There has never been a need for me to use such tricks to make myself look more popular on my Sina Weibo. Using me to boost your own popularity is your true intent, but you have found the wrong target. You probably don’t know that defaming someone is illegal. Don’t think that my lawyer wouldn’t be able to find you. I am a man of his words. However, I will let you spend the New Year calmly, but after the Spring Festival is over, wait for my lawyer’s letter, or maybe see my lawyer at court. You have succeeded this time. You’re probably more popular [angry] than me now.”
