  1. He took responsibility for his deeds i think thats enough.yeah,everyone does it but not everyone is able to take responsibility for their actions.and also if everyone is like “so what?everybody does it whats the big deal” than this world of ours would never be a better place.

  2. I don’t understand this thinking. I realize he can be someone’s idol but there is not a single human being in this world who can stand on a pedestal. Humans are imperfect. That said, can’t we just enjoy the work he puts out? He is in entertainment to bring shows and music. We have no right to his private life. Now, if he is doing something illegal, that’s a law enforcement issue. Am I wrong in thinking that?

  3. Lol what’s wrong with people! They call themselves as a “so-called fan” and as soon as there is a controversy about the celeb, they will be the first ones to back fire at ’em!! Instead of supporting them during their hardships.
    And I would also like to say that what’s so wrong about smoking and spitting?! Most of ’em do!! And most probably the ones who commented sh*ts about lai Guan, they are also most likely to smoke or spit!! Be rational people! Don’t be so narrow-minded!! (No offence but facts count!)

  4. Don’t people smoke and spit on the ground all the time though?? If that weren’t true, most of our streets would be spotless.
