After the news of Macau casino tycoon Stanley Ho’s death was released on May 26, several members of his large family held a press conference outside the hospital, where his daughter Pansy shared a few words with the media. However, some netizens decided to zero in on a seemingly trivial detail in the background instead.
Standing quietly at the back of the group was Chinese model Ming Xi, the wife of Stanley’s youngest son Mario. Several Weibo users took issue with the colour of Ming Xi’s hoodie and slammed her for wearing “red” during such a solemn occasion.
“Did she forget to bring her brain?” one scoffed, while another accused the 31-year-old of wanting to steal the limelight.
