Chapter 96: Please Give Ye Fan Justice! (3)
Ye Fan had already picked up the porridge, returned to her spot, picked up her bag, and left the restaurant.
The road home wasn’t long, and Ye Fan didn’t want to waste anymore money, so she took a shortcut and arrived back at the house.
As she entered the house, she shouted, “Ruoyi, I’m back.”
She walked into Ruoyi’s room with the porridge and medicine in hand.
The screen stopped playing and the program switched over to an ad.
After the ad, the show continued.
The cameraman was instructed to film the entire trip, but the scene of Ye Fan returning to her room and flipping through her wallet was omitted.
Ye Fan walked out of her room, clearly panicking, and proceeding to tell the program crew, “I can’t find my money.”
She clearly put her money inside the drawer, only taking out a small portion to buy medicine.
Her money was taken away by the program crew, not left outside.
But when Ye Fan had found the lock pried open, the money was gone, and the cameraman wasn’t there to film any of it.
The crew deliberately didn’t film this scene, leading everyone to believe she had lost her money while she was out.
The screen was suddenly bombarded.
“Why did the program not include the portion when Ye Fan went home?”
“Yes! As soon as Ye Fan got home, the camera stopped following her. Ding Ruoyi was clearly sick, so why did the cameraman stop following such an important event?”
Of course, some viewers also felt that something was off.
“Am I the only one who finds this strange? Did Ye Fan take all her money out with her in the first place? Most people wouldn’t take so much with them and leave most of it at home.
“Then was Ye Fan’s money left outside or was it lost from inside the room? If it was lost inside the room, then the crew must be extremely careless.”
At first, the viewers’ questions were taken off by the program crew.
They knew that Ye Fan had just debuted and had a small fandom. Bullying a small start wasn’t a big deal.
Ye Fan’s company, Huarui, was also small. They couldn’t go up against the program even if she was being framed.
And so, the program put out a slogan that Ye Fan was causing a ruckus and not following directions. Her reputation would worsen, and that was career-destroying for any newcomers.
Plus, the director had already been bribed by Tang Jin’s group. The plants they had made for the show had all been agreed by them as well.
When the event occured in Austria, they were adamant on not letting anyone find out where the problem originated from.
Who knew that viewers from every social media site would take the case and write their own comments.
Some people sent essay-length theories, all to analyze the intentions of the program one by one. Judging by the effect the program gave off, was there another picture involved?
The crew ended up frantically deleting posts and comments. Whether it was on gossip forums or platforms such as Weibo, viewers and netizens were discussing this matter.
Even with their efforts, the speed at which they deleted those posts was far slower than the rate at which internet users were posting them.
“Previously, everyone scolded Ye Fan when a small video misled people to think she lost her money. Even if she makes that money back, is the crew just going to pretend like nothing happened?”
“Guan Bo’s been silent since the afternoon, must be pretending to be dead. Did they eat the lens? Either put out the shots of Ye Fan’s wallet or just come out and explain what happened!”
“The slandering of Ye Fan online has to be onlined. Do they think viewers are blind? #PleasegiveYeFanjustice.”
Netizens raised endless questions and launched a crusade against the program’s group on “Let’s Go Traveling”’s official Weibo page, also posting screenshots of the records of the program deleting forum posts.
Even though the truth was covered up by the program crew, viewers knew with a single glance that there was something wrong with this show.
Anyone who spoke up for the show would be beaten down instantly.
In popular gossip forums, nine out of the ten posts on the front page would be related with this matter!
On Weibo, the hashtag #PleasegiveYeFanjustice gained a massive number of posts, greatly increasing the reading count.
“Ye Fan was framed” became a hot search topic, climbing from the twenty to the top ten in Weibo’s hot search topic list., then quickly rose to first place.
In a short amount of time, the search amount had exceeded 4.5 million!
At this point, the situation was out of the program’s control.
They had finally launched into an all-out panic.
