Netizens are confused – why did Kris Wu Yi Fan (吴亦凡) write a public apology on Weibo only to delete it seconds later? Was it a knee-jerk reaction?
The former EXO member apparently admitted to his mistakes (citing his immature behaviour and personal affairs) and wanted to apologise to all the women who have been affected.
In addition, his alleged update also indicate that he will be taking a step back from the entertainment industry and an indefinite hiatus. He added that he won’t be responding to any further matters after this. However, a look at his official Weibo account shows that his last update was on 19th July.
This begs the question – did Kris Wu really posts the apology or was it fake?
A fan site pointed out that the time of his apology posting was questionable. Furthermore, the ranking (from 10th to 4th) and number of followers (51.69 mil to 51.8 mil) overnight doesn’t make sense. Until an official statement is released, we’ll just take this with a huge grain of salt for now.
This week alone, approximately 30 women have come forward to share their #MeToo experiences with Kris and his team. In conjunction with the slew of sex allegations, over a dozen major brands have dumped the Chinese-Canadian pop star.
