Malaysian YouTuber and influencer Yang Bao Bei (杨宝贝) shocked many when she attempted to commit suicide last year. That was only the start of her downfall as it revealed her tapestry of lies, i.e. her scams and gambling habits.
YBB lost many friends but it didn’t deter her from picking a fight with fellow YouTuber Lim Shang Jin (林尚进). In fact, she accused Shang Jin of sexually harassing her. YBB got Shang Jin arrested and he retaliated by suing her. They left it there last year, but a recent incident has supposedly dragged the whole thing to light. As it turns out, YBB may have schemed the whole thing, all to get back at Shang Jin!
YBB may have dropped the issue with Shang Jin to focus on repaying her debts. However, it resurfaced when YBB claimed YouTuber Chris Hoo had hired people to beat her up. The YouTuber retaliated with his own video and it became an all out war between the duo. Chris had some damning evidence: voice clips of YBB listing her personal vendetta against Shang Jin and screenshots of conversations proving what he said. YBB did refute his statements and released some evidence of her own, but both of them might be in trouble after today.
Viewers of YouTuber Song Yi know he’s been covering the whole scandal on his channel. However, yesterday (6th January)’s video might just take the cake. He somehow has gotten his hands on the full recordings of the conversation between YBB and Chris.
YBB can be clearly heard scheming the whole incident from beginning to end. She even guessed Shang Jin’s moves after setting her plan into motion. “(Shang Jin) is unlucky because my mother can be a witness,” she said regarding the sexual assault. “Then, he will definitely call you (Chris), Ah Meow or Kim.” When asked why, she responded with “Because he (will) want to prove that I really committed suicide that day.”
Additionally, YBB “taught” Chris how to give false statements for when they testified in court. She gave instructions to them, like claiming they didn’t know Shang Jin had the key to her house and asking them to show screenshots of her messaging them for help. This was supposed to prove, in court, that Shang Jin had sexually harassed her. She also explicitly told Chris to say, “I didn’t expect that (when) I asked (Shang Jin) to (help) people, he would (take advantage of) them instead.”
YBB also mentioned that her agency was very happy as YouTuber Sunny Coco (Seow Chau Pen, 刘少品) had inadvertently helped her agenda. Sunny had been sued by Shang Jin after he used a slipper to tap a photo of Shang Jin during a Facebook live. Shang Jin’s move had angered netizens and swung things in YBB’s favour. “If he hadn’t messed with Sunny Coco, no one would have bothered with me,” she pointed out smugly. “Why did he mess with Sunny Coco? Isn’t he dumb?”
As a final blow, YBB clearly mentioned who she was going to cut ties with after using them. Aside from some of her YouTuber friends, YBB picked on Qiu Wen (秋雯), Shang Jin’s former girlfriend. “(I’m) done with Qiu Wen,” she said dismissively. “I’m done being friends with her. I don’t think I need her as a friend anymore, because we weren’t really good friends in the first place.” YBB added that she would be using her cousin as a scapegoat and mentioned that she would go to a local newspaper with her story to lend herself more credibility.
Well, all YouTubers involved have been silent about Song Yi’s exposé. Shang Jin’s last acknowledgement of the issue was yesterday. He reposted Chris’s video on his Instagram story and explained he didn’t take action against YBB as he wanted her to focus on repaying her debt. He even joked that this was why you don’t offend girls. “Most people trust girls first,” he wrote. “I’m lucky I didn’t go to jail this time.”
We’re not sure if YBB will say anything to defend herself after that scalding tea! For now, she has an excuse, she did supposedly get into a car accident yesterday. However, if she wants to salvage her situation, she had better do something and soon.
