When 19-year-old influencer Du Meizhu (都美竹) outed Kris Wu (吳亦凡) for sexual assault, she faced intense cyberbullying from the Canadian Chinese singer’s fans. Rumors were deliberately started to smear Du Meizhu’s past, which the police have clarified to be false.
False Allegations from Kris’ Fan
The allegations claimed that Du Meizhu is not a rich second-generation Beijinger, and instead a young girl from Ulanhot City of Inner Mongolia who profited from paid dates, charging 1500 Chinese yuan, which was known by many of the locals. The netizen attempted to damage her reputation by writing, “If you have ever slept with her, please voice a few words.” The rumors went on to say she deceived people on second-hand thrift websites.
On July 22, Du Meizhu refuted the vicious rumors by sharing a post from the Ulanhot police department. A netizen by the name of “Wushi Yang Hao” has been investigated for creating rumors and posting insulting information on the Internet, to gain attention and ignite the popularity of Kris Wu, a public relations representative from the police department revealed.
As one of the early whistleblowers to alert the public about Kris’ predatory behavior and accuse him of raping underage girls, Du Meizhu was cyberbullied even though she is a victim herself. Continuing to suffer from depression, she wrote on Weibo, “I’m not beautiful nor perfect, but I tried my best already…. It’s the truth that I was hurt, and I’m still receiving treatment and never stopped taking medication.”
“Speaking up in the fight for justice,” Du Meizhu’s actions have urged Kris’ other victims to step forward as well, providing the police enough evidence to detain the singer. Du Meizhu wrote, “If the heart is sunny, there is unnecessary grief. The smile is warm, and the years are approaching.”
Seeing that investigations are deepening and the matter is now in the hands of the police, Du Meizhu deleted all her posts relating to Kris on August 2 and only left behind her own personal posts.
