New goddess Rose Chan (陳嘉桓) was filming Director Wong Jing’s (王晶) new movie, Laughter Shaking Shaolin <笑功震武林> in Hengdian, China with costar, Timmy Hung  (洪天明). Rose met Timmy, Joe Ma (馬德鐘) and Benny Chan (陳浩民) for dinner, karaoke and supper several days ago. The evening unfolded into a nightmare in which Rose was forcibly kissed and touched inappropriately by Benny and Joe in a public restaurant.

Numerous celebrities sympathized with Rose Chan due to the harassment incident. Gillian Chung (鍾欣桐) strongly supported Rose in her blog, “It was not the first time that someone behaved in this manner, so you have to carefully protect yourself!” Gillian’s statement may have alluded to Benny’s past [harassment] behavior as they worked together in mainland series, Thunder Angels <唐女巡按>.  Mainland actress, Wan Nien (萬妮恩) also agreed with Gillian’s statement.

Wong Jing Heavily Criticizes Benny Chan and Joe Ma

Regarding Rose Chan being sexually harassed by Benny Chan and Joe Ma, Laughter Shaking Shaolin Director Wong Jing scolded Benny and Joe for their unscrupulous actions. Wong Jing criticized Benny for his detestable behavior, “Benny Chan is no different than a predator who sexually assaults female students on a public bus! His first response was to lash out in anger and deny his actions. After he saw the tabloid photos capturing the sexual harassment, he turned into a dead dog, displaying his despicable side!” 

Wong Jing criticized Joe Ma for lacking loyalty and betraying his friendship with Benny Chan quickly after the sexual harassment photos were exposed. Wong Jing noted, “Joe Ma immediately drew the line [from Benny Chan], hoping to push all the responsibility on others. He definitely deserves the 2011 No Loyalty Diamond Award!”

After Rose Chan’s sexual harassment incident surfaced, Joe wished to extricate himself from the incident. Since he was condemned by the public, he announced on his blog that he would donate money to the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals, hoping to soothe public sentiment. Wong Jing responded with disdain to Joe’s blog message, “Joe wants to donate money to the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals to make up for his behavior? The joke is killing me! He expects to donate money and pretend that the harassment never took place? I suggest that Tung Wah refuse his donation!” Wong Jing condemned Joe’s behavior as being shameful.

Jayne: Benny Chan and Joe Ma have become the new dartboards for Hong Kong celebrities to step forward and lash out at.

    Now Joe and Benny are the new “worst man of the century.” And they deserved it. The most despicable was Benny, he was really forcing Rose in an inappropriate manner. To me, it seems so forcible that he seemed like raping her (excuse my language). Joe is also despicable, don‘t ever count on Joe to save you when you are in trouble, he just sit there and do nothing. Instead he comforts you with a kiss in the mouth? WTF. Taking advantage of someone when they are vulnerable too.

    But Jayne, you gotta admit, fair statement by Wong Jing. He is the most vocal, and yet this is a man who builds his entire film career as producer of movies that uses and views women as sexual objects for cheap thrills. However he is right. And I always felt I have wronged Wong Jing in his choice of career when I once saw him on a show in TVB displaying his beautiful calligraphy and poetic skills, indicator that his choice of career is merely a step toward achieving a successful one. Charmaine no statement? After all ex gf.

      Funn,
      “Wong Jing views women as sexual objects for cheap thrills”

      Yes, although you may argue that Wong Jing objectified women sexually for commercial reasons, to appeal to men’s lust. It may not necessarily mean that he looked down upon women; in fact, he comes across as a women lover. He also professed that he always got along well with the actresses in his films because he knew how to talk to them, even the most difficult divas such as Deanie Ip.

      Somehow, I don’t think Wong Jing disrespects women, although feminists do not like his films. I think he just happens to worship women sexually.

    Interesting comments from all.

    Lessons learnt from this episode:

    1. Perils of thinking with your d— instead of your head, especially if you are a public figure. Remember Bill Clinton and the navy blue Gap dress?

    2. If in danger of affronting the sensibilities of a lady, swiftly, profusely and sincerely apologize.

    3. If you are a female, you can look innocent, but always be smart and savvy.

    4. No make up can be a very powerful weapon to make a strong statement.

    5. Changing your stories is never a good idea.

    6. Do not attempt to collude with thick headed friends; there is a high chance that all of you are going down together.

    7. Do not try to donate money when you have done something wrong. It will look as if you are trying to cover up your sins.

    8. Make up can do wonders. Like we always knew.

      Haha thanks for seeing the humor amidst the scandal. I found the following points to be very funny:

      6. Do not attempt to collude with thick headed friends; there is a high chance that all of you are going down together.

      7. Do not try to donate money when you have done something wrong. It will look as if you are trying to cover up your sins.

      Indeed, the men sound quite muddle-headed. Their before and after statements make them look like they are hiding so much .Surely, Joe picked a terrible time to donate to charity.

    Dunno why the words frm Wong Jing cannot be taken seriously since he, himself a big Ham Sup Lo during his younger days..

    besides being engaged directly with Dau Dau aka Yau Sok Ching and other sexy actresses..I dont think he can really give a reliable, supportive remark to Rose and the criticises to Joe and Benny gave me an impression that WJ was merely saying “these 2 are too idiots to harrassed Rose publicly instead of doing it behind an open area”..

      Yes, Wong Jing made CatIII movies and use a lot of sex titillation in his movies. But, has he ever been caught touching actresses inappropriately? Was there ever rumour of him having affairs with his actresses like Eric Tsang?

        Kidd,
        “as there ever rumour of him having affairs with his actresses like Eric Tsang?”

        The only known actress that Wong Jing was deeply in love and had an affair with while he was married with kids was Chingmy Yau. They must have been together for 4 to 6 years. If you look at Wong Jing’s portfolio, he cast Chingmy in a lot of his movies. When Chingmy got married, Wong Jing allegedly was very happy for her and congratulated her in the press, but she drew clear lines and wished to distance herself.

        Wong Jing’s name was also tied to Cheung Man…but not sure if it was really Stephen Chow who had dated her though. The paparazzi wasn’t as omnipresent in the 1990s thus a lot of rumored couples, but not as many exposed romances as the last few years.

    One matter that now I still can’t understand: Why the reporters appeared very in time to snap the pix? And there are a lot of ppl there, why Benny and Joe are too stupid like that?

    Whatever, Benny and Joe dig a hole themselves.

    • jayne replied:

      Fox,
      It may be possibility that the reporters spotted Joe, Benny, Rose and others having dinner much earlier in the evening and waited the whole night for the breaking news (harassment). You have to give the paparazzi credit for being there and breaking this year’s big news.

      Based on Benny and Joe’s replies on their blogs so far, do you find them to be smart in handling the entire situation? From the moment they harassed Rose in a public restaurant, they were asking for exposure. Too many witnesses present. To their denial that they kissed Rose; they should know that either photos or witnesses will prove otherwise. Had they come clean and dismissed with, “We were playing Truth or Dare” or somehow sincerely apologized to Rose and Sin Kwok Lam, maybe sincerity would have at least changed the public perception of the incident a bit more.

      But Benny and Joe lied, making them appear guilty. The guys being married makes it a lot worse, since there is also the cheating angle.

      • Fox replied:

        Yes, tat’s why I say Benny and Joe dig the holes for themselves. If Joe didn’t clear the line with Benny and Benny didn’t say no too fast, this one is nothing.

        For the paparazzi, do you think it’s TOO coincident for them to appear at this moment? Like that, the dinner before that, they doesn’t have anything. They also don’t have any pix of the beginning of the party, but right when the harassment happened. More thing to say: It’s in CHINA, not in HK but a HK mag has it at first. They are too free to send doggies to follow Rose – a newbie in the industry? For Benny and Joe, they also dun follow them that tight after the moment they went to China.

        Lol, the person who has benefit from this is Rose and Sin Kwok Lam. Rose – not being lost a hair and became famous very fast. Sin Kwok Lam, suddenly everyone follow to ask for his opinions on this. Sin Kwok Lam is such a successful sifu.

        Even if Rose didnt lose a hair but she sure got GROPED and KISSED by some oldies kekekeke.

        She might not have but I’m not sure about her sifu. Rmb that Rose still keeps the pix of the party with Joe, Benny on her weibo and don’t seem to be unhappy when uploading it on 19.

        BUT her sifu Sin Kwok Lam is the one who started everything to public, by saying that there are guys did bad things to a little girl. Oh well, he didn’t mention names :P, so if there is no article, he can just say that he said it privately :P.

        U know what? When a tabloid or someone mentioned about Rose didnt sound or look unhappy and was rather “sunny” and normal when she published those pics on weibo. I find it weird cuz she got sexually harrassed and groped..and she can act sunny? But like you said, the sifu could be behind this… instigating the whole incident thus making both rose and herself/himself (sifu) famous overnight.

        I give the doubt to both parties. Look at the pix and I have my own prediction. Lol, maybe Rose and her sifu arranged all and informed the reporters, but if Benny and Joe were not “eager to young girls”, they wouldn’t be involved.

        My prediction comes from the clear pix. Why they choose to do such thing in front of a glass window which can be seen by the ppl outside :), it’s a question to ask. And there are at least 2 more ppl there in the room and they don’t look any drunk, why they dun say anything or having any reaction? And the reporters can’t snap any pix of the meeting parts before that BUT appeared very in time for a harassment. Too many coincidences then I give both parties the right to be doubted.

        Jayne, I think I agree with fox on the point that everything seems so fakely coincidence. Benny and Joe deserved what they got for their dirty actions, if they were really gentlemen, then they wouldnt have fallen for any set up trap (if there was). However, it’s just somehow weird for a HK reporter to follow them on the party and take pix unless somebody leaked the news and promised some good shots that can make the headlines. Anywho, if that was the case, I still support Rose and her sifu for being so smart and so everyone the disgusting (excuse me) side of Benny and Joe. I still don’t believe innocence exists in the Entertainment circle.

      Wong Jing,
      Despite Wong Jing’s soft porn commercialism, he is a very talented man. He created the “God of Gambling” film series, which I find to be still cool today. Wong Jing also had some memorable comedies with Stephen Chow. However, you may argue that Wong Jing objectified women as “pretty, sexy vases” in his films mainly.

      For fans of Wong Jing, here is an article about his early career as a TVB scriptwriter:

        Earlier, I read this on Asianfanatics and it was from a scriptwriter whom has worked with Wong Jing in the past. It explains why Wong Jing is still so respected in the industry regardless of some of his “bad” movies:

        “You may not like his movies, however he is one of the HK film industry’s rare genuine producers. He will never ‘forget’ to pay you the balance of your fees and will never plagiarize a story you create; also, he will never take the script you wrote and give it to some crappy writer who is worse than you to change and update; because he started as a scriptwriter himself, so he knows how to respect creative people…using an ‘old-fashion’ way of saying it — he was brought up well…of course….his father is the man who was responsible for many of the great classic television series that we grew up with: Wong Tin Lam.”

        Too bad, Wong Jing now is having quite bad producer skill with his series and even movies. Treasure Inn has quite bad humour sense and very surprised, PSS is the best girl in this one. Her acting and her character has more layers than all 2 others famous girls.

        I watch ‘Treasure Inn’. Mavis Pan can’t act and her character has too little screentime to be layered. Don’t know. Maybe the version I watch was cut. I don’t find her character layered. Mavis also has little expression. I like Huang Yi’s character and acting the most in the movie. I was looking forward to see Nic Tse and see how he acts in comedy. He was disappointing. Most of the comedy were done by Nick Cheung and Huang Yi.

        She acted out the sexy and villain vixen role in this one, Kidd. Yes, a little of scenes but her face showed the emotions of the role and her role is definitely better than Ah Sa’s, and not typical as Huang Yi’s (this role is similar to many role Huang Yi had in the past).

        Huang Yi always gives same expression for all the roles she is in from the Runaway Bride series. In HZGG3, she is nothing different to Treasure Inn.

        Nic Tse is only good at tragedy, I rmb I said so. Actually not too good but definitely better than comedy.

        Gillian is getting lot of bashing from the general public not because of what she said but more to why she deleted her messages. Her action look more like someone who is trying to seek attention. Gillian has the tendency to butt into other people’s business on her weibo, and then afterwards she will delete her messages to cover up her track after it becomes a huge issue. That is a very typical action from Gillian, which might be the reason why people don’t take her words seriously and saying that she is merely seeking publicity. Quite honest, Gillian is probably the one of the dumbest artist around. If I were her, I would have kept the messages regardless of what people say about me. In general, Gillian has been bring too much negative news to herself and she has no one to blame but herself. Her company is trying hard to pick up her image after every huge fight on her weibo but the girl just don’t learn. Before she randomly indirectly accused Benny, she was fighting publicly with the promotion manager of her new movie and now she entirely burned the bridge for any potential work from that particular company. She need them more than they need her because she has NO work. Without Twins, Gillian would have been jobless this whole year. If Gillian would have kept her messages and stop random picking fights whenever she is bored, then people will have more respect for her, and maybe she might even get a few jobs. If anything, Gillian’s attitude is worster than Cecilia’s but it is just that she is not bold enough to follow through with what she starts. She show her true colors for a moment then quickly hide afterwards, so immature and dumb if you ask me.

        Also,Gillian may not be getting many movie roles but she’s highly popular for different TV dramas so to say she won’t have any job is little extreme. Besides, Twins are getting old and predictable so staying attached to Charlene forever is not an option for Gillian. It seems that scandal done damage to not only her career but personality as well.

    Well I think this is a setup for fame. Just like a lot of other actresses they do stuff like sex tapes and stuff that would attract public attraction to boost their rep. Yeah the guys might have done it but it doesn’t mean it was on purpose because if you’re drunk, sometimes you wouldn’t know what you’re doing. But i still think the reporters are there at the time is too much of a coincidence. There are alot of other news out there but they happen to be there and at that time when it happens. I personally don’t support anyone here.

    I don’t understand why many people think that being drunk alleviates the responsibilities of the consequences of one’s actions? If an individual is not inclined to behave in a certain why while sober, they will not do so while drunk either. Alcohol lessens inhibitions, it does not effects one’s behavior to the extent that you will became a completely different person-say from a gentlemen to a groper.

    Being drunk is not the cause of Benny and Joe’s behavior—it is because this is a side of them that they already possessed before.

    Gillian likes to put her foot in her mouth huh? Doesn’t she realize that she must coexist with human beings who will forever judge her for her past?

        In this situation, the very very very drunk female could still cry rape when she does not have the CAPACITY TO CONSENT–this implies to me that she has passed out or is the passive party. In addition, I am assuming that the male in her case, would not be as inebriated as she is–and would be the active party between the two of them. This becomes a case of who initiated what first and consent being a key element.

        I am not sure if you’ve ever been very very very drunk (and you are a girl)…but if the male party is very very very drunk then he probably could not participate as the active partner in sexual activity.

So before you move into a new city, you could always search to see how many sex predictors are in your area. Hong Kong should do that too if it does not have it already.

      so so wrong, it has to with the moral of the individuals. I have been with male friends who got drunk before, they acted like gentlemen, the last thing they want to do is think about sex or molest someone, all they want to do is rest. When you are drunk, your conscience is there and you can still distinguish rights from wrongs. Joe and Benny just use that as an excuse to molest and attack an innocent victim, I am sure they had probably done it many times before to other women. Once a pervert, always a pervert. The only reason they are sorry now is that they got CAUGHT with photos, otherwise, they would just denial all the way to the court.
