Chinese media sites delete Kris Wu's content following rape charges


Chinese media sites have deleted Kris Wu's content following his rape charges.

Kris Wu is currently facing prison on the charges of sexually assaulting Chinese citizen Du Meizhu as well as other fans, some of who were allegedly underage. The former EXO member was arrested by Beijing police on August 16 on the charges of rape after 2 weeks of investigation. He'll continue to undergo investigation while he's in custody. 

On August 18, the China Netcasting Service Association (CNSA) announced they would support media members like Youku and iQiyi in taking down all of Kris Wu's content. It's reported over 1,900,000 clips and over 7000 of his drama and movie clips have been deleted. Tencent has also terminated their collaboration with the singer, and social media site Weibo has suspended all of his accounts.

Take a look at the full statement by CNSA below.

"Online streaming platforms, such as Youku, iQiyi, and Tencent, have removed works related to Wu Yi Fan. Tencent, who had a collaboration deal with Wu Yi Fan, immediately terminated the arrangement and notified him when the incident first came to light. Mango TV signed a 'Letter of Commitment To Be An Ethical Next Generation Artist Through Self-Discipline' with more than 80 celebrities. Baidu has labelled Wu Yi Fan as 'an unethical artist who broke the law.' Weibo has suspended Wu Yi Fan's personal and studio's accounts. According to the data our members sent to us, as of August 17, 10am, 1.9 million short clips and 7,000 shows have been taken care of. Currently, the work of reviewing and taking action on related shows are still ongoing. 'Multiple platforms removed Wu Yi Fan's work' quickly started trending on Weibo and generated a lot of buzz among users, leading to huge support from the public."

Am I the only one who finds it frightening how the Chinese government can erase someone so easily? If it works with someone so famous, how many regular people that they thought weren't properly representing the country, have disappeared, I wonder?

China is the real cancel culture. This is what needs to happen unlike the western industry where rappers literally rap about raping, murdering and get back to the industry like nothing happened .

I feel sorry for the cast of the golden hairpin who worked hard for years only for their hardwork to be destroyed by this scum . He has damaged so many livelihoods of the staff working on the dramas tirelessly I hope they sue
