It isn’t always easy for a star to recover from allegations, especially cheating scandals. After 4 months of silence, Chinese actor Huang Junjie (黄俊捷) has finally made a public apology.
Huang was accused of cheating by a netizen. She claimed the two were already in a relationship when Huang was seen with another girl.
After clarifying the situation, the Chinese star disappeared from all social media for four months. However, today (5th April) on Weibo, Huang posted an apology. He explained his method in dealing with his private life and public affairs was wrong. He also apologised for avoiding his problems. “To those who once trusted me, (I) solemnly say sorry; I was wrong.”
The 23-year-old star added that those involved in the matter “have been under tremendous pressure from public opinion” and sincerely apologised to them as well. “After consulting with my family and company, I have decided to pause acting for a while.” Huang explained he would be focusing on school and personal development so as to improve himself. “I hope everyone can supervise and correct me in the future,” he stated.
Some fans were unimpressed with his apology. They argued that the star had not apologised to Weibo user “花儿超级乖”, the netizen who exposed his cheating. They felt as though he was still avoiding the matter by giving a blanket apology. However, it seems to Weibo user “花儿超级乖” the matter has come to a close. The user left a short and sweet comment on Huang’s apology: “Live better.”
Kudos to him for knowing he was wrong and owning up.
