Hebe is Wrong

Popularity 2Viewed 1025 times 2020-4-27 15:39 |System category:News

  Hebe, who's a Taiwanese female singer and member of SHE-which is a girl group-has come under attack after she expressed support for another Taiwanese male singer named Show Lo, who has been berated by his former girlfriend on  a Chinese social-media platform for being a Lothario. Show Lo also "stands accused" of seducing his female fans and engaging in sexual activity with many partners at the same time.

  Writing on her own Weibo, which is China's answer to Twitter or Facebook,  Hebe argued that it would be wrong for celebs to use social-media platforms to either air gripes or  launch into a tirade about how poor girls have been betrayed by their promiscuous boyfriends.

  "Celebrities carry a lot of clout and their actions tend to influence their fans. Thus, it would be a mistake for them to show their fans such "rotten" stuff about how well-off hunks like Show Lo  play to their strengths in their quest to hoodwink gullible lasses. We have lots of kids visiting social-media platforms. We just have to refrain from hurling invective at playboys, lest other kids see it and follow suit, " writes Hebe, adding that a girl should call the cops if she has been bullied  or even sexually attacked.  

  What? Who would file a lawsuit against your former boyfriend and accuse him of acting like a playboy? Show Lo's former girlfriend has never been physically abused  by Show Lo  nor has been drugged-rumor has it some chaps even spike their girlfriends' drinks and let their other male friends mack on their befuddled girlfriends. In other words, there is no way for Show Lo's former girlfriend to sue him, even though she has some prurient video clips featuring Show Lo and other girls.

  That's why I think that it doesn't make sense for Hebe to harangue the public on this issue.  Show Lo's former girlfriend, who had been dating him for 9 years before she decided to part with him after finding out that her former boyfriend had been dating lots of girls, has the duty to tell the public how nasty her former boyfriend is and disabuse anyone of the notion that male celebrities are allowed to seduce girls with impunity. More broadly, she is saving more potential victims who simply don't shy away from mingling with male celebrities; some girls truly think that their idols would love to marry them.

  Writing on her own Weibo, Show Lo's former girlfriend said she doesn't want more poor girls becoming the victims like her. " I have come of age," she added.

      I'm just embittered by the way snotty Taiwanese celebs treat Show Lo's former girlfriend, who is said to have helped Show Lo build a successful career in mainland China. One of the friends of Show Lo in Taiwan reproved his former girlfriend when asked to make comments on this scandal, saying "she shouldn't have done this because it would scupper Show Lo's chance of making money in mainland China." Jacky Wu, another TV host in Taiwan,  held the same view during an interview, arguing that Show Lo is just a roistering boy who wants to have some fun. And another female lawyer in Taiwan even rubbished Show Lo's former girlfriend, calling her a capricious lover. "A girl shouldn't treat her former boyfriend like this even she has been betrayed," exclaims this female lawyer in Taiwan.

        I don't know what's wrong with their brains. Another irreverent  shrink living in Taiwan even called Show Lo a romantic figure who bonds with lasses, suggesting that he is a sentimental sort like  Byron.

        It's such disgusting for them to chafe at a doughty girl trying to tell the public that her former boyfriend is just another follower of Harvey Weinstein, who used his power to ravish young actresses in America. And it's decidedly absurd for them to claim that people should give Show Lo another chance to appear on mainland TV shows, allowing for the fact that such insolent sorts living in Taiwan don't even respect girls living in mainland.

        In any event, I'd argue that mainland should bar such celebrities from appearing on TV shows in mainland China. We don't need more dandies like Show Lo showing boys and men how to cavort with girls without marrying them. We should exalt the notion that only true love brings happiness instead.
