Lately there have been viral rumors over TVB actress, Ali Lee (李佳芯), being frozen by the company. It’s reportedly due to her past social media posts about the current political situation in Hong Kong. Netizens accused of her of being a “Hong Kong independence” supporter based on her past activity on social media, which has resulted in a lot of mainland Chinese netizens chastising and threatening to boycott her. Ali Lee had already clarified her stance on Weibo and IG saying, “Any allegations regarding to “Hong Kong independence”, these words have never appeared in my brain or mind before. Never before and definitely not now.” There were netizens who came out to support her after she made the post.

On the rumors of her being frozen, Ali Lee responded to Oriental Daily News saying she heard about the schedule changes, but isn’t sure why they’re being postponed and whether there will be a change in characters. She expresses, “From what you’re saying, that means I am being frozen. But I am still filming “Amelia’s Rhapsody” (愛美麗狂想曲) right now. If I was really frozen, I wouldn’t be filming right now. I don’t think it’s the case. It can be that we filmed a series and it won’t air.” When asked if this was related to her earlier social media posts, she said, “I don’t think so because I didn’t get into any yelling matches with anyone.”
