He excitedly posted a post saying that the netizens’ comments were sarcastic, and even posted a personal photo of the female netizen. Some people thought that his actions were cyberbullying, which caused controversy.
Jiang Tao has been very popular since his debut. Even if some netizens have negative comments about his performance, “Jiang Tang” (a fan nickname) will explain it to him. A few days ago, Jiang Tao participated in an event to sing “I Say I Love You with My Mouth Covered.” Because he didn’t realize that the children arranged by the conference had come on stage, he backed away in fright and asked, “You’re out!” But his singing voice was still heard in the music playing. He couldn’t help but laugh for about half a minute, which aroused suspicion from his counterpart.
Faced with netizens questioning the lip-syncing issue, Jiang Tao posted three posts in a row on IG on the 10th. He wrote emotionally: “Sorry, I really can’t bear it.” He also criticized the female netizen: “I often share information about mental health on IG. “People are saying hurtful words to others” and “I don’t want people in this society who help others solve their mental problems to do things that hurt others.” Later, he also posted the personal profile of the female netizen. Although his facial features have been mosaicd in the photo, netizens criticized him for his online public trial and online violence against netizens.
Although Jiang Tao deleted the post, “Jiang Tang” still flooded the female netizen’s IG message “asking for justice.” The female netizen also responded many times: “I really don’t understand. If the clip is fake, it’s okay. Clarification. Did we misunderstand? But looking at it this way, it is indeed disappointing. People can have different opinions, but none of them are malicious criticisms, but just opinions. I don’t have any opinions on him.” And Jiang Tao Agent Hua Jie encouraged Jiang Tao: “Don’t mind what they say, just be yourself.”
Jiang Tao also issued an apology, believing that the Internet should not be used as a battlefield and rejecting online bullying: “Since my debut, I have been facing a lot of negative comments, attacks, and various false reports, and I have been learning how to coexist with these voices. Last night I did something I shouldn’t have done because of my impulse, and I apologize to this lady. No matter who we are, we must be responsible for every word we say.”
