Oscar Leung (梁烈唯) has not publicly apologized to Kenny Wee (黃浩) for stating that the restaurateur has “persecutory delusions.”
True to his vow to sue Oscar if the apology is not issued by December 24, Kenny appeared at the High Court yesterday to file defamation charges against Oscar. Kenny is seeking compensatory damages and a court injunction.
In Eric Tsang’s (曾志偉) purported physical assault towards Kenny Wee at a wedding over Hilary Tsui’s (徐濠縈) drug rumors, many celebrities, including Oscar, had verbally defended Eric. Besides stating that he did not see Eric slap Kenny, Oscar went further and called the restaurateur as desiring public attention although he is a not a celebrity.
Despite Oscar’s acting career soaring this year, in which he won the TVB Most Improved Actor award, his critical remark towards Kenny brewed unprecedented trouble. On grounds of freedom of speech, Oscar refused to apologize to Kenny and even alluded to him as a “locust,” a Hong Kong slang term for a common annoyance.
Eric Tsang Pushed to Tears?
Kenny is not letting any insult or injury go unnoticed. Kenny has already pressed charges against Eric Tsang for physical assault. It was reported that Kenny received backing from a mysterious tycoon to pursue the charges against Eric at all costs.
When Eric was arrested by the Hong Kong Police for physical assault, he was interrogated for 4 hours. An inside source revealed, “Speaking before the police, Eric kept saying that he was drunk at the time and did not clearly remember what had happened.” Eric allegedly received a criminal records bureau (CRB) number that will follow him for the rest of his life, which will record his future criminal offenses. Upon hearing this, Eric allegedly burst into tears.
Hilary Tsui Hiding from Police?
An inside source revealed that the police had wanted to Hilary Tsui provide a statement in person at the station, but she has repeatedly dodged the request, sending only her lawyer to represent her. It was understood that if Hilary continues to dodge the request, the police will have to take further action.
