Chinese-Canadian pop idol Kris Wu was held by Beijing police on suspicion of rape late Saturday night, according to authorities in Beijing’s Chaoyang district.
According to an online report, Wu Yifan (Kris Wu) “repeatedly deceived young women to have sex” and other related circumstances. Wu (male, 30 years old, Canadian national) is suspected of rape and has been detained by the Public Security Bureau in Chaoyang district in accordance with the law, and the investigation is continuing, the Chaoyang police authority announced in a post on Sina Weibo.
The revelation quickly rose to the top of Sina Weibo’s trending topics, with many netizens demanding an impartial investigation and severe punishment for the culprit if the crime is proven, even if he was formerly a prominent figure. Even more people praised the cops on the internet.
Du Meizhu, an internet influencer who claims to be Wu’s girlfriend, accused Wu of luring teenage women to have sex by stating he was recruiting actors, and a dozen brands terminated their contracts as a result.
Wu employed a variety of ways to identify and seduce young females for sex, according to Du. Du said that the total number of victims, including herself, is significantly greater than eight, with two minors among them. Du indicated that she had returned Wu the hush money in stages, totaling roughly 500,000 yuan ($77,166), and that she was prepared to follow legal proceedings.
Du’s sister said late Saturday night that “only after having experienced hellish torture can we have the power to conquer heaven. Our efforts are not in vain. All the injustices we suffer will turn into motivation. Thank you.”
According to ent.163.com, despite the fact that Kris Wu is a Canadian citizen, the laws of the People’s Republic of China apply to anyone who commits a crime in China, according to Beijing-based lawyer Wu Fatian.
Foreign nationality, according to People’s Daily, is not a talisman. There is no such thing as immunity, no matter how renowned one is. Whoever breaches the law will face legal consequences. Remember: the more popular you are, the more self-disciplined you must be; the more popular you are, the more you must follow the law.
On Chinese territory, one must follow Chinese laws. According to a statement on the Central Political and Legal Affairs Commission of the Communist Party of China’s official Sina Weibo account, Chinese law neither wrongs nor connives anyone, and will maintain the facts as the basis.
According to China Women’s News, a society governed by the rule of law does not tolerate filth. There is no privilege, no matter how bright the star is or how well-known it is. On the Chinese mainland, no one is above the law! If they are accused of committing criminal acts, they must be investigated and punished.
