Malaysian-born artist Gary Chaw (曹佰豪, Cao Ge) has accidently made headlines again! Someone recently claimed Gary got drunk and lost his temper again in a Taiwanese restaurant. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Gary has acted up after drinking.
However, for once, Gary has been very insistent he isn’t in the wrong. In fact, his friend, producer Michael Tu (涂惠源) is certain Gary wasn’t drunk that night. Additionally, the artist has asked the whistleblower come forth to clear the issue, otherwise he’s going to sue them!
According to an anonymous source, Gary had apparently thrown a fit after getting drunk. They stated that Gary had lost his temper after they asked him to stop cursing. It didn’t help matters that the source included a 2-minute video showing Gary ranting angrily. However, Gary’s story was entirely different. In addition to claiming the other guests had started it, he explained he had been there drinking chicken soup with friends.
As it turns out, this wasn’t just any old chicken soup. It was soup made with rice wine! Apparently, this restaurant in particular was famous for having high alcohol content in their soup. However, Gary’s friend, producer Michael Tu, claims Gary wasn’t drunk. He reportedly said that the alcohol content wasn’t very high and they each only had a bowl to drink. Additionally, Michael offered his own story which corroborated with Gary’s.
Michael alleged that their neighbouring guests had been noisy, which prompted Gary to ask them to lower their voices. Instead, they got louder which prompted Michael and the group to leave. Gary apparently pulled down the booth’s curtains before leaving, although not specified why, and this prompted the other guests to react. Gary then lost his temper and started swearing. As Michael tried to guide Gary out, the artist had apparently knocked over things and a staff member when he tried to get free.
Both Michael and Gary felt the story had been blown out of proportion by the media, hence Michael’s need to add his side of things. Gary himself isn’t too happy. He apparently expressed as much in a post on his Instagram Story today (11th March). “As for the behaviour of the whistleblowers and the media’s incomplete understanding of what happened, I am disappointed and saddened by the articles,” he stated.
Gary added that he wants the anonymous source to come forward and clarify the issue. Apparently, the artist is tired of people sullying his name. “Please come out and (clear) the record,” he wrote. “Or I will do my best to find you and file a (lawsuit).”
The Malaysian-born artist has always had a nasty history of being an angry drunk. It’s unfortunate that many refuse to give him the benefit of doubt now. However, for his sake, we hope the truth comes to light.
