Weibo Deletes Kris Wu’s Social Media Account Over Rape Charges

Chinese social media platform Weibo has brought down Kris Wu’s account days after the Chinese-Canadian singer was detained by Beijing police on suspicion of rape. The first to accuse him was a 19-year-old student Du Meizhu, who said he had assaulted her while she was drunk. Du Meizhu also claims to have known eight victims and that two of them were minors.

The student told Chinese media last month that Kris Wu had lured her into having sex when she was 17. She said his team invited her to his house for casting in the music video.

The allegation was first made on Weibo, where Kris Wu had over 51 million followers. Weibo took down his account shortly after the news, while more than a dozen brands, including Louis Vuitton, Porsche, and Lancome cut ties with Kris Wu.

Later, Weibo announced that they had deleted 108 accounts and 789 groups related to Kris Wu, which were violating its protocols. Kris Wu’s label accounts were also deleted from the platform and most of his songs have been removed from multiple Chinese platforms.

Kris Wu was one of the biggest names in China at the time of the accusation. By far 20 women have accused him of sexual assault. Despite the widespread criticism, some fans said they still support Kris Wu.
