Former EXO member Kris (Chinese name Wu Yifan, 33), who was sentenced to prison for sexual assault in China, was revealed to have STD (sexually transmitted disease). Nevertheless, when some fans defended Kris, netizens needled.
On Jan 26th, a woman uploaded an exposure post on Chinese SNS Weibo, saying, “It’s certain that Kris has syphilis.” This person claimed, “I had to have sex with him even during menstruation, and (Kris) secretly filmed a video.”
The woman heralded further disclosure, “More disgusting facts haven’t been revealed yet.” She told those who do not believe her words, “I hope you have conscience. If you don’t, I hope you meet human trash like Kris.”
Some fans defended Kris with reactions such as “Don’t talk about the whole situation as if you had seen it”, “You deserve to be criticized no matter what Wu Yifan does”, “I feel relieved since the public criticizes you” and “You’re mentally ill.”
However, other local netizens needled and expressed concern over these fans, “What is the psychology of defending rapists?”, “Does Wu Yifan still have fans here?” and “Did you read the post properly?”
Kris was charged with sexually assaulting three women in the same way, including sexually assaulting a drunken woman at his home, from November to December 2020. He was also charged with colluding with other people to engage in obscene behavior with 2 women at his home on July 1st, 2018.
In November last year, the People’s Court of Chaoyang District in Beijing, China sentenced Kris to 13 years in prison, including 11 years and 6 months in prison for rape and 1 year and 10 months in prison for group obscenity. At the end of his sentence, he is also ordered to be deported from China.
