A comment that Ruby Lin (林心如) once made about her My Fair Princess <還珠格格> costar thirteen years ago has sparked anger from netizens, prompting the Taiwanese actress to close the comment board of her Weibo.
Thirteen years ago, while on the Taiwanese talk show Kangsi Coming <康熙來了>, Ruby Lin told her hosts Kevin Tsai (蔡康永) and Dee Hsu (徐熙娣) that her My Fair Princess costar Zhou Jie (周杰) stuck his tongue into her mouth during a kissing scene. Thirteen years later, Zhou Jie brought up Ruby’s complaint about him on his Weibo, saying that Ruby should’ve stopped the scene if she was unhappy with what happened. He then said that Ruby was trying to “put down Mainlanders” on the Taiwanese show.
This obviously did not sit well with Chinese netizens, who bombarded the comment section of Ruby’s Weibo with slander and hate. Everything turned for the worse when Chinese paparazzi stalked Ruby and her husband Wallace Huo (霍建華) at the Beijing airport; and when Wallace saw the paparazzi, he stuck out a hand to stop him. Mainland Chinese netizens claimed that he was being disrespectful to the reporter.
On September 10, Ruby had the final straw and posted one last message on her Weibo before closing down her comment section. She said, “Are you guys done yelling yet? First off, if we can’t even point fingers at the airport, then does that mean we should be protecting the people who are taking privacy away from us? Secondly, [I] want to preserve the beauty of Huan Zhu, so I don’t want to comment on it any further. I just did not expect that it would come to this. To those with alternative motives, please stop fueling the fire. Those who are kind should have a peaceful mind. Thirdly, this has been blown way out of proportion, and I’m fine with it. That is what the Internet is. It doesn’t take much work to bring someone down. If you find it so exciting to diss someone then go for it.” Ruby ended her Weibo post with a comment dedicated to her fans, thanking them for defending her and calming the situation down when she chose to stay silent.
“I hope that we will continue to find kindness. When we lift up our heads, it’ll be sunlight.”
