Chapter 97: Power of the Sisters (1)
The power of capitalism was very strong.
The news and forums people read are often controlled by an invisible hand.
But, when their anger reached its peak, no matter how much money was spent, nothing would put out the flames of the angry viewers.
Of course, it’s obvious that an evil person would be punished by karma. Since they ruined Ye Fan’s image with dirty water, they must’ve known that being discovered was a possibility.
If the crew wanted to prove their innocence, it would be easy! All they needed to do was to release the tape where Ye Fan came home, opened the drawer, and found that her money was gone.
If the camera really did follow Ye Fan into her room, rummaging through her bag and finding her money gone, then the viewers would drop the subject immediately.
The topic matter went on for an entire day. Even at night, viewers were still discussing it.
“The matter still hasn’t been settled. Why not wait a little longer? Just in case they release the video later.”
“We’ve already waited an entire day, they’re not going to release anything. If there wasn’t anything wrong, why wouldn’t they have already cleared the accusations?”
Ye Fan’s group also worked hard.
They bought the manuscript, spread it online, and analyzed the events of the time in detail. They repeatedly pointed out that Ye Fan’s money had been placed in her room, which the show’s crew must’ve stolen.
Only Ye Fan and her team knew what had really happened that day in Austria.
The explosion of differing opinions couldn’t be pushed aside by the Huarui company.
Ye Fan’s Weibo was silent.
After she had debuted, her behavior had been “low-key”, rarely posting anything on her Weibo.
The last post on Weibo was from a month ago, when Ye Fan reposted the teaser for “Let’s Go Traveling”.
In this short amount of time, Ye Fan’s Weibo followers had climbed to the millions, and the comments from that post had reached a hundred thousand.
Netizens and fans had posted numerous comments below.
“Why isn’t she saying anything? Is she guilty or trying to maintain her popularity?”
“You up there, are you one of the show’s people trying to quiet things down? Please get as far away as possible.”
“Seeing such a hard working miss being ostracized is heartbreaking.”
“If no one is finding that there’s a problem with the editing, then Ye Fan will always be blamed. So scary.”
On the other hand.
The director group was holding an emergency meeting overnight.
“Let’s Go Traveling” had only aired one episode, yet had encountered a storm due to editing. The insults from viewers were severe.
If they continued airing, it would only cause more people to become angered. Ratings from people to their friends would be extremely poor, and they’d have to spend lots of investors’ money.
And so, they went to major public relations companies and paid high prices to deal with this crisis.
But the request was too hard to fulfill. None of the public relations companies wanted to involve themselves in such a mess.
When the public was on Ye Fan’s side, who would be willing to help the show’s crew? Wouldn’t that be ruining their own brand?
Early in the morning, the official Weibo for “Let’s Go Traveling” finally released a public statement due to pressure.
At the time of the event in question, the scene of Ye Fan losing her money was not recorded due to technical difficulties. To viewers previously accusing Ye Fan from losing money due to a released clip, we apologize for the misunderstanding.
It seems that the program team is overly anxious. With a few words like that, feebly and painless, did they expect to brush this aside?
Viewers were furious that the program replied without any effort or sincerity.
“Technical difficulties? It just so happened that the device had issues at the most crucial moment of her losing her money? Don’t you think it’s because they didn’t record it on purpose?”
“This is hilarious. They didn’t follow her when she went into her room, yet later on when she said she lost her money the scenes were connected seamlessly. So is your camera good or bad?”
“I can’t watch as a passerby anymore! The program team has to give us an explanation! Can you just bully newcomers casually like that?”
“Haha, look at the attitude of the crew. If you don’t sincerely apologize to Ye Fan, then we’ll keep flaming your program!”
With such strong emotions online, Ye Fan stayed quietly at home. She never went online and read the reviews, nor did she want to participate in the matter.
Ye Fan trusted her crew, and believed the matter would reach a conclusive answer in the end.
She was satisfied as long as she could peacefully spend time with Du Du.
