Edison Chen Attacks Lin Chi-ling On Social Media: “I Had to Do It”

Edison Chen (陳冠希) has declared war against Lin Chi-ling (林志玲) and he’s not backing down.

On Wednesday (July 27), the actor-turned-businessman suddenly went on a raging rant against the Taiwanese model-actress on his Sina Weibo, barking out one insult after another.

He shared a portrait of Chi-ling and posted, “This b**** is so ugly man, and she smells like s***. I warned [you] that [you] wont like me when [I’m] angry, Miss Pretend to be actress/supermodel when [you’re] just a trick with a entertainment deal cuz u s***** some.”

About an hour later, Edison deleted the above Weibo post and followed up with a message written in Chinese.

His update said, “Why did I scold her? She knows why, I already warned her before. You guys should ask her! Thank you for your cooperation. You may say that I’m in the wrong, but I feel she’s more in the wrong.”

The media contacted Lin Chi-ling for comment. She responded through her representative that she doesn’t know what’s going on and neither does she know Edison on a personal level. Her representative said, “[She] doesn’t know him at all. We don’t know what’s going on. [She’s] been working every single day in the past few weeks. [They] never contacted and [she] does not know him.”

A while later, Chi-ling’s representative released a second response in regards to Edison’s second Weibo message. The representative said, “It’s frustrating to suddenly receive such damage. We will try to understand what’s going on. This came out of nowhere!”

That night, Edison left one last message about his debacle with Chi-ling on Weibo, saying, “In the end all truths reveal themselves. If you don’t like me, then don’t follow me!”

Edison and Chi-ling stayed quiet on the matter all throughout Thursday (July 28), but on Friday (July 29), when Edison attended an event in Shanghai, he did not shy away from media questions and boldly explained why he did what he did.

“I was speaking up for the person I care about the most,” he said.

Edison did not drop a specific name, but the media is speculating that he was referring to his girlfriend, Qin Shupei (秦舒培). As for an explanation behind the Weibo post, Edison said that he and Chi-ling had privately contacted each other three times before he made that post. Because Chi-ling never responded to any of his messages, he decided to call her out in public.

  1. actually i quite admire him for doing this, perhaps i don’t like chi-lin either. who in the asian entertainment industry is bold enough to do something like this other than edison? doesn’t this sorta thing happen in us entertainment all the time?

    1. @m0m0 At least in western, they made it crystal clear why the media bash eah other. But in this case, it’s too ambiguous. It’s just like on sided child bickering. No head no tail. But big damage for both side. Lose lose.

      1. @dramadrama
        chinese media reports that people mostly support Lin Chiling.
        she’s always shown class in dealing with situations and is gaining extra points for her calm reaction with this unwarranted verbal attack.

    2. @m0m0 yeah me too can’t stand this woman with her irritating voice who thinks that she is the most beautiful woman in the world. If she has been a star in the 80’s, she would have been no match to the likes of Rosamund Kwan, Cherrie Chung, Joey Wang & Brigitte Lin.

      1. @nigel
        didn’t think much of her either, but many people changed their minds during reality travel show Sisters over Flowers.
        She’s far from annoying in reality and gained many fans after that show.

  2. He needs to grow up!!! Trying to protect his gf? Oh please! He probably did more damage opening his mouth instead!! This guy need to just get a damn life!

  3. oh ho ho scandalous. edison chen really lives up to that label.

    wonder what evidence he’ll cook up.

      1. @m0m0 I think speaking one’s mind is different than being un-gentleman. In this case he is definitely being un-gentleman/jerk. He needs to address the issue – NOT attacking the person. This person is so lack of character. SAD!!!

      2. @onlyyou Yeah. And he seems to enjoy it. But it is really low on him to step on some one, just to get attention.

  4. I thought I put a comment earlier but probably lost? lol
    Anyway, OMG….we are taught at a young age to respect your elders and clearly this woman is much older than he is. Seriously, where are his parents growing up? Really, this is so sad b/c he’s not a bad looking dude but the behavior is worse than a jerk and an ahole. lol…Omg!!!

  5. Sure, he’s rude, he’s a jerk, it’s really classless of him to bash someone online. But… it’s… it’s not even a clever smackdown! ‘smells like sh*t’? What is he, 7 years old??

    He just sounds like an idiot.

  6. You expect something intelligent to come out of a porn actor’s mouth that is more used to licking stinking puss….

  7. That is quite harsh. But i guess he has probably given up on having a career in the entertainment industry so he doesn’t care about his image anymore.

  8. I seriously do not think Chi-Ling smell bad really.
    If that is what he is saying not as a metaphor or something.
