Shu Qi’s Support of Donnie Yen Results in Exposure of Old Nude Photos
With Vincent Zhao (赵文卓) and Donnie Yen’s (甄子丹) recent verbal spat, stemming from disputes on the set of Special Identity <特殊身份>, many celebrities felt compelled to take sides and vouch for the integrity of the martial arts superstars. Stars who have sided with Donnie include: Shu Qi (舒淇), Chapman To (杜汶泽), Leon Lai (黎明), Kara Hui (惠英红), and Wong Jing (王晶). The artists vouching for Vincent’s integrity included: Yuen Wah (元华), Yuen Biao (元彪), Yang Mi (杨幂), Eason Chan (陈奕迅), Timmy Hung (洪天明) and Leung Ka Yan (梁家仁).
Last week, Shu Qi supported former Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen <精武风云·
Shu Qi’s vocal support of Donnie Yen resulted in some fanatic fans who disagreed with her perspective, who decided to widely circulate her old nude photos from her early career. Visibly upset by the surfacing of her old nude photos, Shu Qi deleted over 1,000 of her Weibo blog posts and discontinued the following of all her former contacts on March 26th. Since there were over 10 million fans who had followed Shu Qi’s Weibo blog, her actions of erasing all previous blog entries aroused heated debate.
Shu Qi’s past appearances in Hong Kong Category III movies were still deeply rooted in audience’s minds. However, her hard efforts in acting have also gained her wider acceptance and critical acclaim in recent years. The debate of why mainland China was able to tolerate adult video stars, such as the popular Sola Aoi, but not Shu Qi, became a hotly discussed topic.
A portion of the online community defended Shu Qi strongly, with one netizen remarking, “If China can tolerate Sola Aoi, why can it not tolerate Shu Qi? Were her efforts from all these years wasted?” Another passionate remark was, “She (Shu Qi) has slowly put her clothes back on and became a good actress. Why do you need to expose her old scars? What a bunch of brain-disabled morons…so senseless.” One netizen remarked that aside from the nudity, there were other reasons behind Shu Qi’s current fame. “Not every woman who takes her clothes off will become successful. Behind the scenes, there is much blood and sweat, who can see that? Shu Qi, even if you have filmed Category III or adult videos, you are the most pure goddess in our hearts!”
Many netizens were upset that Shu Qi’s seemingly innocent remark, vouching for Donnie Yen’s integrity, brought upon a personal attack on her instead.
