- Xie Na
Since she exploded to fame after hosting “Happy Camp”, Xie Na’s become target number one for netizens. However, her strong internal strength always helps her laugh it off, because she feels that “all slander and attacks are ways for me to become stronger.” Thanks to many years of hard work, Xie Na has now become the top female MC within the entertainment circle.
2. Zhang Ziyi
“Under the table dealings”, “scamming”, “nude pictures on the beach”, “being sponsored”… Zhang Ziyi has had her fair share of negative news since become popular. Zhang Ziyi has used the law to defend herself when faced with vicious rumors online and continued working hard. Not only is she an international superstar now, she’s also a happy mother.
3. Fan Bingbing
Fan Bingbing has been subjected to the rumor mills ever since she became popular. Comments attacking/insinuating plastic surgery, being sponsored, secretly having a child, not having any works to her name and using media play instead, and bullying other female stars have never died down. She’s insisted on proceeding forward with her own faith, and just like what she wrote in Weibo once, “If you wish to wear the crown, you must suffer its weight.” “Never lower your head! The crown will slip! Don’t cry! The bad guys will laugh!”
4. Zhao Liying
When netizen attacks grew to an extreme once, Zhao Liying once said, “I’m cursed at for even taking a sip of water.” She never responded or was affected by the incredible amounts of speculation and gossip, but used her works to speak for themselves. She’s won more respect from netizens lately due to the broadcast of her latest dramas.
5. Mabel Yuan
Ever since she gained popularity, netizens have constantly listed her crimes, including: ugly looks, fake acting, and playing up her poor circumstances. The hashtag of “Mabel Yuan should leave the entertainment circle” once trended on Weibo. When faced with netizen attacks, Mabel Yuan chose to turn that energy into increasing her acting skills and producing solid works, becoming the goddess that many netizens now adore.
GEM has been so attacked by netizens that she has almost no unmarked skin on her body anymore. Common attacks have been, “fake virgin”, “disrespect to elders”, “poor vocal ability”, and “celebrity disease”. However, GEM’s never paid attention to these rumors and have only let her music speak for herself. Her “G.E.M.X.X.X.Live World Concert” has completed 64 concerts to date and has broken the previous record of 59 concerts held by any Chinese female artist on a solo tour. She well deserves the title of “vocal queen”.
7. Liu Yan
Because of her sexy display of cleavage on many occasions, Liu Yan has been blasted for being an exhibitionist. She responded, “I wear sexy clothes not to display that I’m a wanton woman.” In her dictionary, “hard work” occupies an important place along with “cleavage”. She’s one of the few in the entertainment circle with no background, no famous godfather, and no scandals. She’s reached her current status completely on her own efforts.
8. Zhang Xinyu
Controversial topics have abounded since Zhang Xinyu debuted, such as working as a call girl, having been married, exhibitionist, poor acting skills, no quality work, plastic beauty, black hearted woman, and basically all negative traits that one could possibly think of. The most tragic was that she had been an Expo ambassador, but netizens reframed it so that she had faked that. Despite that, Zhang Xinyu never fell down. Her works since 2009 until now have always been very popular, and she’s transformed herself from a “sexy goddess” to a renowned actress able to act in a variety of roles.
9. Yang Mi
One period drama “Palace” created Yang Mi’s success, but also made her bear the brunt of netizen attacks. Apart from poor acting skills, no vocal ability, netizens blasted her for plastic surgery, stinky feet, and black heartedness. She’s used her high EQ and a strong hate to face the online hate.
10. Liu Yifei
More than ten years after her debut, Liu Yifei has gotten no plastic surgery and has had no dating scandals, but has been continuously attacked from 2004 to 2015. Netizens say that her age is fake, degree is fake, habitual liar, depends on a sponsor, with even some making up rumors that she had gotten an abortion or changed her gender. Liu Yifei has never defended herself and just approached her work seriously. She’s gone from the small screen to the big, and her acting skills have matured, becoming the impeccable goddess in many netizens’ hearts.
