Ex TVB Actress Shirley Yeung Charging Fans S$262 For A 5-Min Chat On Douyin

As we all know, many celebrities have recently hopped on the very lucrative live stream bandwagon to make some quick cash. 

Yes, even those who have faded out of the limelight, like former Miss Hong Kong Shirley Yeung.

On June 20, the 43-year-old ex-TVB actress went live on Douyin for a catch up sesh with her fans.

However, netizens later realised that there was a "Pay to connect" feature at the bottom of the screen. 

It's said that fans who click on the link get to enjoy a five-min one-on-one chat with the star.

Sounds good right? But sadly, it does come at a price. One that's "too high" to be exact.

Do you see the "pay to connect" feature at the bottom of the screen?

According to netizens, the "pay to connect" feature is not a default function, and has to be set manually by the user, which is Shirley in this case.

And after clicking on the link, netizens were shocked to see that they have to pay 8888 Douyin coins for a chat that last up to five minutes. 

Since the Douyin coins conversion rate is 1:7, that means that the five-minute conversation would cost fans $1270 yuan (S$262).

Would you pay this amount to go online with Shirley for 5 minutes?

Unsurprisingly, netizens were far from impressed with how much Shirley is asking, adding that the amount is "far too high". 

Netizens have said that Shirley is but a "passé Miss Hong Kong" and that "many people don't know who she is". 

"Why would anyone pay that amount to speak to her?" added another netizen. 

However, some also stood up for Shirley.

"If you don't wish to spend money just don't [click on the link], no one's forcing you to pay," said one such netizen.
