Most of the time, when celebrities make a solemn apology in public, it’s usually for something legitimately serious like cheating or doing drugs.

However, when Xie Leilei of Chinese girl group GNZ48 made an appearance in front of a crowd of fans and reporters to tearfully beg for forgiveness, bowing at 90 degrees for a whole minute last Saturday (Feb 6), it was for dating.

Actually, we’re not sure it was for ‘dating’, because while the contrition was clear from the devastating apology — did we mention the bow lasted a full minute — the reason for said public contrition was couched in vague terms: The sharpest clarity came from her admission that she had done something which “fails to meet the requirements of an idol”, though it sounds like what she could be guilty of is breach of contract with her entertainment company.
