In July this year, Canadian-Chinese soloist Kris Wu (吴亦凡) was accused of seeking out and grooming underage girls. Beauty blogger Du Meizhu (都美竹) was one of those who led the charge against him. However, her prominence on the entertainment scene only led to her being a target for irate fans. She disappeared shortly after the scandal got heated.
Thankfully, the blogger reappeared in September, looking much healthier and more at peace. By then, Kris was no longer at large as he had already been arrested. Although she seemed to be getting her life back on track, fans were shocked after rumours that she was dropping out of university started circulating. The blogger was quick to clarify the suspicions.
Du uploaded a post on Weibo yesterday (8th November) to address the issue. Her reason for doing so was mainly because she didn’t want to disappoint those supporting her. Du emphasised three times that she was not dropping out of university. “I did not drop out! I have not been “dropped out”! I did not! Drop out! Of school!” she exclaimed.
According to the blogger, it is true she is leaving her university, Communication University of China (中国传媒大学). However, it is her own choice and is not due to being unable to handle her studies. “I am leaving (the university) because I wanted to leave Beijing, leave the depressed city and regain my health sooner,” she explained. During the scandal, rumours of her dropping out of school had already started circulating.
Du expressed her reluctance to leave her university, citing she had fond memories there with her lecturers and classmates. However, she wasn’t willing to risk her studies. “This is a very important stage in life. I don’t want to give up my studies because of some people or something else,” she stated. Du warned that if malicious slander appeared on her marketing or personal accounts on her socials, she will use the law to defend herself. “I won’t be a cowardly little girl anymore!” she said.
She thanked her friends for their support, especially when she was depressed and promised not to disappoint people’s expectations. “(I will) try my best to get into the ideal university,” she declared. As she once revealed in a live broadcast, Du is planning to retake the university entrance examination.
Kris Wu’s scandal may have left a mark on her life, but the blogger is gearing up to continue valiantly on. We wish her the best for her exam and hope she makes it into her dream university! Hopefully, she’s be able to study peacefully.
