The #MeToo has taken the Taiwanese entertainment industry by storm this week, with several celebrities admitting their dark pasts of inflicting sexual harassment. Taiwanese host Mickey Huang (黃子佼) apologized for his past actions, and was consumed with guilt. He attempted to cut himself and was hospitalized yesterday.
On June 19, a netizen revealed that she was forcibly kissed by a veteran male celebrity while sharing a ride, and was lured to take nude photos in a hotel under the guise of an artistic photo exhibit. Even when she cried and urged him to stop, he kept taking the photos. The incident occurred when she was only 17 years old approximately a decade ago. Although she did not directly name the celebrity involved, hints pointed to Mickey Huang, who later admitted to the accusations.
Mickey said he made many mistakes when he was young, and those actions cannot be undone despite his charitable efforts and hard work afterward. He was shaken by how he should face everyone over his mistakes. Over the years, he tried his best to change himself, and claimed to have never done anything to hurt Summer Meng (孟耿如) during their 9-year marriage.
Uploading three video clips, Mickey revealed that his scarred childhood had led to his distorted perspective in youth. His mother had cheated in marriage, and a young Mickey witnessed his “mother and lover make love in the hotel bed, which shocked me to the core.” In the second clip, Mickey revealed the dirty secrets of other Taiwanese celebrities, including allegations against sisters Barbie Hsu (徐熙媛) and Dee Hsu (徐熙娣) for using banned drugs.
In the third clip, Mickey’s thoughts sounded scattered while showing signs of suicidal thoughts. With heavy eyebags and a forlorn demeanor, he asked everyone to take care of his wife and daughter, and lamented that he could not be the good father he wanted to be. He soon erased the three clips and went missing temporarily as his family looked for him urgently.
Consumed with regret, Mickey resorted to harming himself. His teacher, Chang Hsiao Yen (張小燕), revealed that his wife later found Mickey had cut himself in the leg while trying to harm himself. Mickey reeked heavily of alcohol when he was transported to the hospital for treatment. Speaking with the press, his wife Summer Meng vouched that Mickey is a good husband and father during their marriage, and the couple will face the consequences together. Mickey’s condition is currently stable and has already returned home.
