The following was Joe Chen’s post on Weibo:
October 15 is your birthday.
But I need to fly to Budapest later tonight to film, I’ll be on the plane for 13 hours.
I may still be on the plane during your birthday, and may not have internet when I get off, so I want to tell you first
An important thing needs to be said three times
I miss you
We miss you
Although I still can’t help but cry sometimes
I wish more often that I was smiling
I often talk about you with my assistants, chatting about your funny moments, how kind you were to everyone, how much you were like an old man when you huddled in on yourself, afraid of the cold…
We remember the happy you
I remember your smile
Being able to accept things doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt
I believe that good will always be able to triumph over evil
Be well in a pink heaven, my friend
I hope you found the peace in your heart
We will meet again one day

[+8,805] What a deep friendship, I’m truly very touched! Joe, take good care of yourself!
[+4,505] If I turn into memories and depart the living, and see that I can’t hug your crying self with my cold body and the thought of someone I love deeply traveling alone… I think I would hate myself for being so ruthless…
[+3,205] Our dearest Kimi, happy birthday! We hope that you’ve found true peace, and just want to tell you that no matter where you are, we’ll always be together
[+2,514] I have the urge to cry whenever I see reports of Joe Chen and Kimi
[+2,154] Just what do these haters want people to do? They said that friendships were fake when people didn’t post on Weibo, now when they do they say it’s mediaplay. Is everything a plot and scheme to them?

[+1,583] I really want to cry. I’m choked up again, but I still want to tell Qiao Renliang happy birthday 👑💖🎀 Is there cake in heaven? Those who miss you remember your smile. I hope you’re always happy there!
[+1,190] I’m teary, Kimi, there’s no depression in heaven, just happiness!
[+1,135] When she doesn’t post on Weibo you guys called her cold! When she does you say she’s mediaplaying! What do you want her to do! Vicious words are a knife, haters have no integrity and can go die themselves!
[+948] You damn haters, do some good in your life for once
