Artists Faye Wong (王菲) and Li Yapeng (李亚鹏)’s daughter, Li Yan (李嫣) has always been in the public eye. Netizens have watched her grow and seen her mature via her socials. Unfortunately, this also means that they feel the need to parent her.
Fifteen-year-old Li Yan has apparently been vacationing. It looks to be a wonderful holiday, as the young girl has certainly been enjoying herself. However, some rather revealing photos have caused netizens ire as they feel she is too young to post such photos.
Like everyone else, Li Yan uses Instagram to update people on her life and keep certain memories in picture form. Of course, photos of her holidaying would make the cut as well. Her recent photos show her wearing a bikini while enjoying her time on the beach and what looks to be a ship’s deck.
Unfortunately, her photos have drawn unwanted attention. Netizens are criticising her dressing, claiming it is too much for a 15-year-old girl. Some are questioning if Li Yan has changed too much, with a few even blaming the culture she’s supposedly learning overseas. Others suspected someone of masquerading as her on Instagram, but a quick check proved it came from Li Yan’s own account.
Several have also brought up her parents, asking if Faye and Li Yapeng were aware of her photos. Apparently, her father has previously mentioned he didn’t like Li Yan sharing too much about her life on her socials. However, others argue that this is a form of rebellion for the young teen. They claim this is Li Yan striking back at her parents after her dad announced he was marrying again and her mom is apparently busy with Nicholas Tse.
This isn’t the first time Li Yan has come under fire for her lifestyle via Instagram. Previously, netizens have given her grief over her expensive clothes and accessories, and for wearing a tattoo sticker. It has led to Li Yan clearing her account and hiding it from naysayers.
We can certainly understand the need for secrecy. After all, it seems Li Yan simply wants to live her own life without others chiming in. Well, we hope she continues to shine bright despite her harsh, unwanted critics!
