Angelababy was the guest in the first episode of the variety show, “My Better Me” (变身总动员). It’s no surprise that she is often the target of criticism stemming from plastic surgery rumors, diva behavior rumors, divorce rumors with Huang Xiaoming (黄晓明), and others. One of the hosts, Liu Wei (刘维), was curious and asked her, “So many of these annoying people online are always saying nonsense. When you encounter such unhappy words, would you really get mad? Angelababy responds, “Actually, I did get mad in the beginning.”, and then eats a piece of candy.
This action got the attention of the hosts. Liu Wei then says, “You’re starting to get mad!” Another guest, Ma Weiwei (马薇薇), follows up saying, “She is really starting to get mad!”. Angelababy then explains, “Actually they (haters), are just saying these things. In real life, who would actually care about these things?”
Liu Wei then takes out his courage and embarrassingly asks Angelababy if she has ever thought about quitting the entertainment industry. Angelababy gave a really clever response that shocked the hosts and the other guests. She replied, “If that was the case, then everyone would probably have a lot less fun. Who would everyone complain about online?”
While Angelababy said this was a smile on her face, host, Shen Mengchen (沈梦辰), felt sad about the underlying meaning of her words. She expressed, “I am very sad. My heart aches for her. Even though she was smiling when she said it, but in my heart, I feel very uncomfortable. I have admiration from the heart.”
After the episode aired, netizens left comments supporting Angelababy, saying, “The malicious online attacks against this girl is really too big, feel for her.”, “I believe baby would keep on getting better.”, “Baby is a female celebrity full of positive energy.”
