Edison Chen Stands Up for Nana Ouyang
As a collaboration between his brand CLOT and Mitchell & Ness and NBA, Edison Chen (陳冠希) recently released a line of basketball jerseys. He had invited 18-year-old Nana Ouyang (歐陽娜娜), a Taiwanese cellist and actress to model the new collection.
Netizens were quickly divided over their opinions on the new advertisements. One camp praised Nana as a good choice due to her youth, but the other side criticized her for having thick upper arms and being fat. Edison was quick to defend Nana, commenting “YALL DUMB….U DONT LIKE WHAT I POST UNFOLLOW ME B*TCH…. NANA COOL….”
Soon after, the search phrase “Is Nana Ouyang fat?” rose to the top of search ranking charts on Weibo. In response, Nana posted on Weibo a childhood photo with the comment, “The most motivating search phrase has shown up. Losing weight is a really personal thing; you need to set a goal in order to persevere….When I’m hungry now; I just look in the mirror. It’s very useful.”
Even though netizens have pointed out that she has thick upper arms, the photos still show that she has thin legs. Due to her profession as a cellist, she is not able to train her arms too much in order to prevent injury, so this may be one of the reasons why they look less toned.
