Manager Responds to Rumors Aaron Yan Losing Mentor Spot on We Are Young 2020

Aaron Yan (炎亞綸) has always been very vocal when it comes to social issues and human rights. He was one of the first Taiwanese celebrities to speak out against the comments made by WHO director, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, last week. He claimed three months ago, there were racist attacks against Africans, the black community, and himself, allegedly originating from Taiwan. This sparked outrage in Taiwan with her president, Tsai Ing-wen, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs issuing a statement refuting Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus’s allegations and claimed he didn’t have evidence to support his claims.
