Tzuyu has been facing a controversy as she held a Taiwan flag up during her appearance on A Little Television. After the show went on air, Chinese entertainer Huang An accused her for supporting Taiwan’s independence. While he himself has once held up the Taiwan flag in one of his shows as well. His act has caused many hates towards him, first having all Taiwan shows banning his appearance, secondly having his songs banned on the Super FM98.5 Broadcasting Corp.
Meanwhile JYP Entertainment has released an official statement on Tzuyu’s controversy, they stated “Recently there were malicious rumors spreading on the internet about artists in our company. We are very disappointed to those who did such acts. As a Cultural Enterprises, our company has always encouraged a better relationship between China and Korea. Our company (including Chou Tzuyu) has never express our views and opinions on China’s politics. Moreover, this malicious rumor that has been spreading on the internet is about a minority that is only sixteen years old; and has not had enough experience to form her own political opinions. However due to the malicious rumor, our artists’ China activities have been severely affected, and has caused many troubles with partners who we have maintained a good relationship with for many years. Due to the issue we have stated above, our company has decided to halt all of Tzuyu’s activities in China, until the malicious rumor is clarified.”
Please continue to show love and support for Tzuyu and TWICE!
