Anthony Wong Scolds Chrissie Chau is Brainless

Source: Mingpao
Translated by: KAY @ http://kays-entertainment.blogspot.com

Lang mo's photo albums are criticized as low class and inappropriate and are banned to promote in this year's book fair. Although Chrissie Chau and her juniors to launch words-only CopyBook, challenging HK Trade and Development Council, but still got rejected. Anthony Wong scolded lang mos are challenging bottom line of Hong Kong's morality. He even aimed at Chrissie, saying she isn't educated, no; smart but doesn't have great wisdom.

Anthony Wong attended to Chung King Fai's new book signing event yesterday. As for news of lang mo lately, he couldn't hold back and criticized. He believes lang mo's action is to challenge the whole Hong Kong, women groups, families, morals, and government: "There are some views in the society that cannot be deviated. Even prostitutes have to cover their necks when they protest on the streets, and they won't go to houses that have families and kids to protest. If they go there to protest, then it's crossing the boundary." Although related parties already banned lang mos promoting in book fair, and the problem seems to be solved, but Anthony believes it's an intentional problem, because they overestimated their intelligence.

Talked about Cathy Tsui look-a-like Debby posted a film of her shirt being ripped off online? Anthony said: "I didn't watch it, but I know about it. She is smart, shapes herself as a victim, her action is cunning, but she crossed the boundary." Whether he doesn't support lang mo, think they have a problem? He said: "Every occupation would be respected, but don't challenge. If the book fair turned out like that, I won't even go."

At night he criticized again in another event. This time he aimed at Chrissie Chu. He said if lang mo needs to appeal, they can ask Zi Teng (an organization that cares about sex workers) for help. There is a difference in civilization, high, low, and refined. Chrissie Chau has many ideas, but the stupidest thing is she challenges for the want of challenging. In the end it angered many people. Anthony used an example of customers aren't allowed to bring alcohol to coffee shops, but someone poured alcohol into water bottle, and walked in with it, trying to challenge, is it very smart? A smarty but doesn't have great wisdom, it's just like that when you aren't too educated.

Yesterday A.Lin and DaDa and 6 members of the New 8 Models attended to an event. As for Anthony's saying, A.Lin said first they're prostitutes and don't attack them. DaDa said they didn't challenge moral values, just some youthful photo albums. A.Lin said: "Now every veteran is criticizing us. Old models are criticizing us, too, I don't want to be a lang mo!" DaDa added: "So once a lang mo, I can't release books, taking away all of our opportunities?" Talked about they're banned to promote in book fair, they said there are elements of racism and would talk to their company, thinking about going to Equal Opportunities Commission to complain.

I don't blame the HK Council for banning the lang mos from the book fair -- their antics at last year's book fair caused such a riot and really "cheapened" the event.

And regarding the video that lang mo Debby posted on the internet -- it is sad that these are the types of "role models" in HK society today....no wonder there are so many "problem youth" in HK....it's people like her that corrupt society more than helping it. Also, I have a huge problem with her attitude -- when she was questioned about it, she didn't see a problem with her video (which, according to reports, is much more graphic than what is described here). She told the media that as long as it is "in the name of promotion of her picture book" and "it works", then it's okay -- so even if she is "corrupting youth" by promoting that sexual violence and rape are "okay", she has no qualms about it. So ridiculous!

Lang mo these days are corrupting society. Good that Anthony spoke up about it and I agree with him, and I'm glad that they banned it from the book fair. I guess these lang mos are just looking for trouble if some perverts see those photos and decide to do something. its ruining the society and that's the reason why we have so much problems with young adults.

It's a slang term that came about last year to describe "young, teenage models" -- it's derived from the term "lang mui" which is Cantonese slang for "teenage girl"...

I agree with the banning of 'lang mo' in book fair. It's not elitism. It's doing what is appropriate in what place. The aim of having book fairs is to cultivate the love of reading and the appreciation of literature. Having scantily clad 'lang mo' there to promote their pictorial was just inappropriate. Just a few weeks ago, I read a news article where Theresa Fu said she's practicing some sexy dance for the promotion of her new book in the coming book fair. WTH?!

I personally have nothing against teenage models in general; loads of them do amazing work for catwalks during fashion weeks and so on. However, the same can't be said about these girls. Posted Image And what have they got to do with the promotion of literature? It's almost the same thing as the promotion of pornographic magazines if they're using sex appeal to bring in interest.

You deserve to be criticised by the veteran models if that's the way you respond to criticism. How childish. Who said you cannot release books? You are only banned from promoting your picture books in the book fair. Your books can still be sold there and you can set up your promotion elsewhere.

As for elements of racism, you are chinese, the people in the HK Trade and Development Council are chinese. What's racism? Do you actually know what racism means? Just please stop speaking already. The more you speak, the more stupid you sound. You are just bringing a bad name to the already not so good image of the 'lang mo'.

Totally agree with you! And that's why so many people hate the lang mos so much -- even the "true" models (who actually are not "old" since a few are in their late 20s and 30s) hate them because they are giving the modelling industry a bad name.

And like Anthony says, these girls are uneducated -- that's why they respond in the childish way that they do. I mean, when you have a teenager justifying sexual violence and rape (as Debby did), then you know something is obviously wrong with these people...

Glad that people are starting to realise how stupid the lang mos are. I remember reading an article the other day, where one of them said that their books are suitable for "parents to read together with their kids". Pfft. In the same article, there a picture of a group of lang mos holding their "books" - several had a photo of them wearing lingerie and showing lots of cleavage on the front cover.
Book fairs are not places for people to promote porn or sex appeal.

Hi, just want to know. Has anyone read/seen the books of these lang mos? What is the content of the books? Are they just pictures or there are description accompanying the pictures? Are there writings about the lang mos inner thoughts, her opinions on certain subject/issues on it? Just curious. Are the pictures in it all very revealing?

Although Chrissie Chau and her juniors to launch words-only CopyBook, challenging HK Trade and Development Council, but still got rejected.

I am very interest to see what their word-only CopyBook will be like, what would they write in it.

Here's an update from today on this situation....I only translated the part of the article that talks about Anthony Wong.

Source: Oriental Daily

Anthony Wong continued his “oppose lang mo” movement today. In response to the accusations of discrimination against prostitutes: “I told Chrissie Chau to go consult with Zi Teng because the lang mos are the ones who said that they wanted to find an organization to file a complaint. They feel that doing this [filing a complaint] is very proper, so I suggested Zi Teng, since the services they provide are so extensive, including promoting awareness – it’s not all about going to bed with someone. Regarding the reference to prostitutes – note that I said if prostitutes were to go out on the streets to protest, they wouldn’t go into the villages and people’s houses to distribute flyers, since that would be inappropriate. People should clearly understand what I’m saying first. Basically, everyone can have their “space” to exist, but they should find the most appropriate way to express it.”

Anthony continued to scold Chrissie Chau today, saying that her actions of doing anything possible to enter the book fair are very inappropriate: “They actually gathered 10-20 people together for a meeting to discuss it, coming up with plan after plan to get into the book fair – including going onto the internet and endlessly claiming that people are discriminating against them or trying to exert pressure on them. They should quit saying that they are selling their ‘youthfulness’ – youthfulness is not just about having a curvaceous body…the way they are approaching it, they aren’t promoting ‘youthfulness’, they are promoting ‘lust’!” (How about the organization Zi Teng saying that you are insulting all women?) “Letting people rip off your clothes, purposefully spraying water on yourself, then doing ‘suggestive’ things such as climbing up and down, spreading your legs apart, etc. – that’s not insulting to women? Where is the sensitivity? They should try to understand what I was saying first.” (Why do you scold Chrissie in particular?) “Because she has been taking on the role of the ‘leader’ of the lang mos.”

Honestly, why do they insist on going into the book fair to promote? Why can't Chrissie just give it a rest and promote her book somewhere else? That's what Angelababy plan to do as an alternative to promoting her in the book fair. I think that's a wiser move.

Completely agree with Anthony. But yeah, blame it on the people who supported the rise of lang mo's. I for one find them completely cheap looking - all they do is sell sex.

My husband saw a picture of Chrissie promoting some soccer event and he said, what's this, soccer hookers?

The latest news today is that some of the lang mos still plan on attending the book fair, since the HK council can't prevent them from attending as 'consumers' -- some of them are even bragging about how they are going to go and stand around and if people want to take pictures or ask for their autographs, then it is up to them...so basically, they are openly challenging the HK Council and forcing their way into the book fair at all costs.

I don't get these people! WTH is wrong with them? Don't they understand that they are not welcome at the book fair? They are definitely shameless -- I can see why Anthony said the things he did!

Usually, youthful protestations or rebellions against convention or establishment are backed and empowered by adults with personal agenda. Wouldn't be surprised if it is the case here, too. I don't think the lang mo would so flagrantly flout HK dodgy society if not for the go-ahead nod from their behind-the- scenes bosses, who have clout and money. The tabloids are probably paid to blow up the whole incident as publicity for the lang mo's 'cause'. In any case, the lang mo must be relishing thumbing their nose at HK society, esp. Anthony Wong.

But then again, I might be wrong since I don't know much about lang mo as a group, much less, wth is Chrissie Chau?

Here's is short intro on Chrissie Chau.
http://www.neonpunch...au-takes-storm/

She's became famous (or infamous) after that ad where she walk around the sheet in bikini. So, when people talk about Chrissie Chau, it synonymous with her body (especially the cup size).

But, she's in no way stupid. She just use assets to her greatest advantage. But, I don't think she's a brainless bimbo like she portrayed herself to be or what others think her to be. Even Anthony what said she's smart, just not wise.

I know why HK Trade and Development Council are banning the lang mo. They are disrupting the book fair. I'm listening to an old radio show in RTHK. One of the DJs mention that to get to the other writing materials you have to get through the bunch of lang mos and their large numbers of fans and supporters. Very disrupting.

I don't think there's anything wrong with what Shu Qi said. She said there's nothing wrong with a young girl wanting to shoot a photo book and show her body if she's happy about it. But, she disagree with the 'ripping clothes' video. She also said that it's understandable and normal for Anthony Wong to say what he said because he doesn't want young people to learn bad things. Basically, she think it's not wrong to shoot a photo book but respect Anthony's opinion. I think her opinion is very fair.

Honestly, what do you want her to say? Criticise the lang mo and say they shouldn't do such thing? Then people will call her hypocrite.

Honestly, I'm not against the lang mo shooting and release such books if they are happy about it. What I disagree with is their childish response to the ban and it's really not appropriate for them to promote their book in a bookfair. It's like, there's nothing wrong with people drinking wine, but, you shouldn't drink it in a coffee shop if the coffee shop does not allow it.
