The movie industry’s reaction to ex-EXO Kris Wu being sentenced to 13 years in prison for sexual assault

Former EXO member Kris Wu (Chinese name Wu Yi Fan) was handed over to trial on charges of sexual assault and sentenced to 13 years in prison in the first trial, drawing attention from the Chinese film industry.

The China Film Association said on its official WeChat account on Nov 26th, “The Kris Wu case proved that even the greatest fame cannot be your protective suit from punishment if you invade the red line of law and the moral Maginot line.” “As a worker of the entertainment industry, one should spread their virtues to the world, leave a clean name for themselves, and always think wisely and be humble,” it added.
