Joey Yung Hates Chapman To For His Lame Jokes

As a guest at Ronald Ng’s (伍樂城) concert last night, Chapman To (杜汶澤) publicly made a joke out of having duped Joey Yung (容祖兒) two years ago. Unfortunately, his humor did not translate into anything funny in Joey’s mind, and she later lashed out at Chapman in rage on her Facebook profile. Sensing what he said had hit a sensitive nerve, Chapman quickly issued an apology and vowed to cut back on his jokes.

While performing onstage, Chapman announced to the audience that he had promoted Joey to be the lead actress in Emperor Motion Pictures’ film, Diva <華麗之後>, in 2012. He had hoped she would be crowned Best Actress for her performance, but Joey did not win any awards that year. Ironically, Chapman was the one who brought home the Best Actor Award at the 19th Hong Kong Film Critics Awards.

Chapman continued to laugh at how he duped Joey. Apparently, she was also at the concert and he had run into her earlier. Chapman exclaimed, “She just found out that I duped her earlier backstage, so I’m going to dedicate this song to her. I hope she will never run into terrible people like me in the future.”

Joey Rages at Chapman Via Facebook

That night, Joey criticized Chapman angrily in a post on Facebook and accused him of hurting others for pleasure. She wrote, “Dear democratic hero, Chapman To. I’ve always been minding my own business. I put my best efforts into the opportunities I am given by others. Filming Diva was not for winning Best Actress. When can you, as an adult, learn to stop stirring up trouble and stepping down on others so you can bring yourself up? You’ve helped me in the past, and I thank you for that. But this isn’t the first time you’ve hurt others for pleasure with your so-called humor. I can’t stand it any longer. No matter how you cover up your image, you are the only person I hate within the entertainment industry.”

Chapman’s Apology

Wishing to stay on good terms, Chapman immediately apologized to Joey. He posted, “Seeking to enhance the atmosphere at my high school classmate Ronald Ng’s concert last night, I told a joke before thinking it through and said what I shouldn’t have. Right now, in my most sincere attitude, I apologize to Miss Joey Yung. In the past, I have never regretted anything I’ve said. This is the only exception, because I cherish our friendship. Thank you for referring to me as a ‘democratic hero’. After this incident, I will make fewer jokes. I do not seek forgiveness, but am wishing that you are fine! Sorry!”

    I think Chapman thinks he can pull a fast one like Eric Tsang and make fun of people without thinking about their feelings……….wrong move this time buddy………Joey has always been neutral in this industry and does not deserve to be mocked at by anyone and not even Eric Tsang.

    Who wants to be an a-hole like Eric Tsang anyways?

    Chapman To is like Eric Tsang making jokes at others expense before thinking the consequences just to make themselves look good.

    Chapman To can go keep his Best Actor Award by his side, because he is nothing without manners, respect or class.

    i can’t stand chapman to but i saw the clip and didn’t feel what he said was so offensive to prompt such a strong and speedy reaction from joey.

    he probably sees himself like eric, only lacks much more tact and charisma.

    I’ve watched the clip and it’s just a lame joke which should not have caused Joey Yung to react so angrily. Chapman To only said that he asked Emperor Group boss to invest in a movie called Diva and Chapman asked Joey to be the main lead to win the best actress. Of course she didn’t win cannot entirely blame it on Chapman, most probably it’s her acting not up to the par for the award! Her reaction only goes to show how much she cares about winning the Best Actress Award when she’s saying otherwise!

      I understand what you meant but Joey Yung should have higher EQ in handling this instead of lashing out on her fb page! She has been in the entertainment circle for such a long long time now that I’m sure she can handle any kind of situation unless she choose to do it otherwise for whatever reason unknown to the public. Just my thought.

      Yeah, I don’t get why Joey was offended by this particular joke. Maybe he said something else backstage?

    After reading all these adverse remarks about Chapman To I’m beginning to really dislike him and his insensitive remarks. I’m glad that Joey spoke her mind and put him in his place.

    Joey just needs to get off her high horse. It was a joke. It may not have been a funny joke in some people’s opinion, but a joke nonetheless. Just because she lacks a sense of humour, doesn’t mean Chapman should stop trying to be funny. Chapman told a joke that wasn’t very funny, but it was not made out of meanness. Can’t really say the same about Joey’s email though. To publicly announce that you hate the guy for telling a bad joke is nasty and mean, esp when it’s obvious that her boat loads of fans will mindlessly follow her in not liking Chapman.

    Classless joke.

    On a different note, I never thought Joey is a good actress. She’s decent here and there. Singing is def her forte.

    Congratulations, the mainlanders were offended. So what? Why is it even relevant that someone was offended? That is just the most useless ‘shutup’ argument.
    The point is, do they both have the right to freedom of speech? Yes. Did they both do or say something that can be considered mean and nasty? Yes. So why is Chapman the only one being condemned? Why is Joey above criticism and too precious to be the butt of a silly joke? You wanna talk about being offensive, I find Joey’s high-horse-better-than-thou over sensitivity quite offensive and more than a little distasteful. She just tried to use her fb message to shut Chapman up, aka censorship. Is that not equally disgusting and should you not be equally offended?

    If you guys watched the vid where he said those words, it’s just a joke. And Joey has taken this too seriously. I believe Chapman wasnt trying to say Joey is after the Best Actress award. He was just poking fun at hw he tricked her into making the movie. Ppl dont have a sense of humor these days.

      Didn’t watch the video clip, don’t really like both of them.
      However, to be fair to Joey, we must remember that the joke is always funny when it’s not on you.

    When I originally read the news I felt Chapman was just being classless and rude. After seeing the video of what he said, I feel Joey is being too sensitive. It looked like Chapman was just making a joke that probably no one would have even given a second thought if Joey had not made the post that she did. I don’t think Chapman was trying to offend her or thought that it would.
