Taiwanese singer Annie Yi recently found herself an unwitting contender for Most Hated Celeb On The Internet when she made some rather disrespectful remarks about late Cantopop diva Anita Mui on a talk show.
Then, to make matters worse, she was also accused of encouraging her fans to hate on the other contestants of Sisters Who Make Waves, the reality talent show she’s currently taking part in. Although she later apologised and tried to explain herself, many netizens weren’t buying it and continued to criticise her.
Not everyone has turned their back on her, though: one avid fan took to Weibo to pen this post in defense of the 52-year-old.“I think Annie Yi is great and has high EQ. She treats her husband, children, and in-laws very well. Why must you all vilify her, you bad people? Live as your true self. I support Annie Yi!”
