Chapter 19: Her Initiative Part 3
Chang Ying dialed her manager’s phone number. Before she even said a word, she was already bombarded with an anxious stream of words from the other side. “I couldn’t reach you all night. What are you doing?!”
Her manager’s attitude was abnormal because her manager had never raised their voice at her ever since she became a popular artist.
“You liked a post from Ye Sui’s anti-fans. It’s like saying that you are proud that they were bullying Ye Sui. Because of that post, the netizens blew up and that post became the number one in the hot searches, instantly.” The manager sneered at her while speaking.
Chang Ying was a celebrity influencer, so her team had access to her official Weibo account and password. They didn’t notice the post matter until it became a hot topic searched by many netizens. Once they realized what had happened, the manager immediately called her.
[Chang Ying Liked Ye Sui’s anti-fan Weibo’s post.]
The post continued to be the top trending topic on Weibo. The company had already spent money to withdraw it. They had been unable to contact Chang Ying until then, so the decision had been left to the manager. They had already tried their best, but the netizens were fiercely searching for that post.
“What?” Chang Ying clearly remembered reading the comments on Weibo last night…
She stupidly forgot to switch accounts! How could she like that post with her official account?!
Chang Ying’s hands began to tremble, her anxiety was spiking. When she opened Weibo, the top ten topics of Hot Search were all about her and Ye Sui. As she scanned through them, she could see that they were all from Ye Sui’s anti-fans.
[Chang Ying ployed a person.]
[Ye Sui placed intense pressure on Chang Ying.]
[Ye Sui was being bullied!]
[Chang Ying made a mistake clicking…]
Her page was flooded with questions and abusive comments. Although most of them had been deleted by the team, more were being posted every minute.
She must have forgotten to change users because of her bad mood on the previous night. Seeing a netizen praise Ye Sui had made her irritable and she didn’t pay attention to which account she was using.
Chang Ying had always been careful with her public image. She was a celebrity known for being pure. Her reputation had always been very good, practically flawless. Such a slip wasn’t big, but it would have a certain impact on her reputation.
Her popularity was big, but not every netizen would support her.
Fortunately, Chang Ying’s public relations team had already issued a press conference. They announced that her account had been hacked and expressed their apologies about the impact on Ye Sui. It was the first time Chang Ying’s team had to bow their heads to Ye Sui.
Netizens were skeptical about the announcement. Chang Ying’s Weibo account was hacked, but they quickly unliked the post once it became a hot topic? Only Chang Ying’s loyal fans believed it had been hacked.
[Older sister, don’t be afraid. We are your loyal fans and we’ll always stand behind you.]
After so many years since her debut, it was rare for Chang Ying to be bullied. She had climbed high without any substantial black material (paparazzi). It must have been Ye Sui’s company that threw stones at those who fell into a well.
[Did Chang Ying’s hand slip? Ye Sui’s anti-fan Weibo was so unpopular, how did she even get there? In my opinion, Chang Ying was paying close attention to Ye Sui’s anti-fans.]
[I think Ye Sui is pitiful. She’s been bullied by the netizens for so long, and she never even came out to clarify herself. It was Chang Ying’s fans who bullied Ye Sui, why are you swearing at her Weibo?]
By liking that post, Chang Ying managed to shoot herself in the foot. She completely fell into her own scheme and didn’t even spend much effort to remove the responsibility from Ye Sui’s hands completely.
Netizens everywhere were sympathizing with Ye Sui, enlarging her group of fans. She had debuted with the moniker “Little Chang Ying” but she had been smashed by netizens. No one had ever looked at what she looked like.
On that day, Ye Sui’s performance in the 《Crown Princei》made everyone forget her previous title and remember her name. It also marked the start of her first official fandom. They were all attracted by Ye Sui’s few shots in the 《Crown Prince》. Her face was stunning on all 360 degrees and she had no open pores. Every angle was breathtaking to look at.
Compared with her previous jobs, Ye Sui’s acting skills had greatly improved. Her emotions were different in every shot, from appearing bright and flamboyant to unruly, passing through provocation and breezing through broken-hearted and sorrowful… Her acting skills made such a leap in quality, she seemed like a completely different person.
The newly formed fandom was very experienced in choosing idols. Although Ye Sui wasn’t popular at the moment, they believed that with her looks and acting skills she would climb high in the entertainment industry.
On her way home, Ye Sui dialed Chen Shu’s phone number. It rang three times before he answered. “Chen Shu, can I use your computer at home?”
The two of them were not the type of couple to engage in meaningless conversations. The moment Chen Shu picked up the phone, Ye Sui immediately fired her question.
She needed the computer to watch the recently released drama 《Crown Prince》. However, the computer was inside the study, and Chen Shu was the only one who went inside that room. She didn’t know what he did while he was in there if it was working or playing games.
Ye Sui felt necessary to ask for Chen Shu’s permission to use the computer in the study room. After all, it was his house. But all Chen Shu did was sigh heavily. “There is a new computer in the bottom drawer of the desk, on the right-hand side, for you.” He said.
She had planned to hang up the phone directly after asking for the favor, but his reply made her pause for a moment. “Chen Shu… The drama I’m cast on is now showing. Would you like to watch it with me?”
