It’s always important to dress appropriately for every occasion. After all, if you aren’t careful, your clothing choice might accidently offend people. This was certainly the case for actress Jacqueline Li aka Li Xiao Lu (李小璐).
Jacqueline recently visited a temple. Although some fans would have been pleased with her piousness, others were more preoccupied with what she was wearing. Her supposedly revealing dressing apparently got her into a lot of trouble with fans.
The actress apparently went to Yunnan to visit a temple there. Jacqueline uploaded photos of herself at the temple, including one photo of her with her hands clasped together. At the time, she was wearing what looked to be a strapless tube top with a cloth skirt. “The prejudices in life are (as big as) a mountain, it is better to cultivate yourself,” she captioned.
Although her outfit looked nice, several netizens felt it wasn’t suitable for the temple. Some also took it upon themselves to inform her of it. “Please dress appropriately at (the Buddhist temple),” one said. “Since (this is a place of prayer), this dress is really inappropriate,” another comment read. Others claimed her dressing was ill-suited as it showed too much skin. “Public figures should pay attention to their words and deeds,” one stated.
However, someone claiming to be a local explained that Jacqueline was wearing their traditional clothing. They added that girls in the province usually wore such clothes and that Jacqueline was merely following their customs. But, others claiming to have visited the area before, alleged that the locals did not wear such clothes to the temple. In fact, according to them, the local girls did not wear revealing clothes nor were they allowed to act intimate with guys.
Jacqueline has since taken down the post, but has yet to comment on the issue. Well, hopefully more people will attempt to dress appropriately before visiting places of worship.
