A netizen had recently shared a bunch of gifs showing Huang Zitao (黄子韬) working behind the scenes on the set of various series. Huang Zitao was seen holding the MIC, being the camera person, and moving props on set. The netizen meant to say he was a worker, but mistakenly said he looked like a “打工人” (da gongren), which translates to hitting a worker.
On October 22, Huang Zitao responded to the mistake, saying, “Person working, not person hitting a worker. How could I possibly be someone who hits workers?” Fans immediately left comments joining on the laughter.
