It seems like there is now a de facto ban on Kris Wu Yifan from appearing onscreen for allegedly sexually abusing and date-raping minors. The bombshell was dropped by one of his victims Du Meizhu and it has been the only thing netizens have been talking about on Weibo for the past few days.
Wu Yifan’s debut drama The Golden Hairpin (co-starring Yang Zi), which made headlines over its top billing order controversy, will likely never see the light of day. An alternative would be to replace Wu Yifan with another actor’s face using artificial intelligence (aka what Win The World did with Gao Yixiang, which didn’t end up airing anyways because of Fan Bingbing’s tax evasion scandal), which is both costly and time consuming.
Given the way the Chinese entertainment industry is run and how involved the censors are in everything, I can only say that this has been a long time coming (he was involved in similar scandals in 2016 and 2019). Even without this mess his acting / singing is hardly watchable, so I personally am glad to see him leave the entertainment scene.
Both parties have reported this to the police, though no public announcements have been made about this case on the judicial side.
