Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Jiang Yuning immediately felt better and less depressed after reading these encouraging and supportive comments from her loyal fans. This was just a small matter and she would definitely survive this.
Jiang Yuning subsequently received a phone call from both Ku Jie and the young paparazzo but at this time, there was nothing that X Society could do since the news was already all over the internet. The only thing that they could do was to wait for Jiang Zhitong to reveal the truth.
&x201C;Have you called uncle and asked him about his opinion on this matter?&x201D; Ku Jie asked immediately. &x201C;I believe that uncle would definitely want to speak up and declare your innocence with regards to this matter.&x201D;
&x201C;No. I think he is about to get on the plane soon anyway and I do not want him to get dragged into all these complicated matters in the entertainment industry,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately. &x201C;My heart aches whenever I think about how much he has suffered in the last five years. I really do not want to trouble him and disrupt his peaceful life.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning suddenly received a phone call from Jiang Zhitong when she was on the phone with Ku Jie.
As soon as she saw the incoming call from her father, Jiang Yuning immediately said, &x201C;Brother, I will answer dad&x2019;s phone call first.&x201D;
As a matter of fact, Jiang Zhitong&x2019;s assistant had already briefed him about everything that had happened today when they were on the way to the airport. Jiang Zhitong did not expect the people in the entertainment industry to actually be that vicious and speak so badly of his daughter even without any concrete proof.
Therefore, he had already contacted Xiya Hotel&x2019;s public relations department and had given them instructions to deal with this matter with utmost priority.
&x201C;I have not even left the country but you have already gotten into trouble. How can I leave without any worries?&x201D;
&x201C;Dad, even second brother is not worried. So, you can just be rest assured. This is how the entertainment industry works and I am sure that there will be more incidents like this occurring in future. Dad, just trust me. Once my fans base grows bigger, I will finally have the power to confront those netizens who are criticizing me and spreading rumours about me,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied in a very serious manner.
&x201C;No matter what it is, I am alive and I should clarify this matter to the public.&x201D;
&x201C;I do not want to cause you any trouble&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied.
&x201C;Silly girl. I will already be going abroad immediately after this. Who would be able to harass me when I am abroad? I have already recorded a video in the VIP lounge earlier and sent it to Xiya Hotel&x2019;s public relations department. I will ask them to cooperate with your entertainment agency to clarify all the negative news and rumours about you. Silly girl, you must always remember that I am your father and I will not let you suffer in silence,&x201D; Jiang Zhitong replied in a very powerful and determined manner.
Jiang Yuning felt an inexplicable warmth in her heart after listening to her father&x2019;s words.
&x201C;Alright then, I am going to board the plane now. Goodbye, my precious daughter.&x201D;
This thing had suddenly become much simpler because of Jiang Zhitong.
However, Jiang Yuning still did not know who was the person who was stabbing her in the back time and time again. Did that person really think that she had no temper at all?
A short while later, Vera called Jiang Yuning once again. &x201C;Xiya Hotel has already sent two of their representatives from their public relations department over to the company to personally discuss the public relations matter with Director Shen Yichen. Would you like to come over?&x201D;
&x201C;I will come over now,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately. &x201C;See you at the meeting later.&x201D;
After hanging up the phone, Jiang Yuning quickly put on a dress before she drove to Guangying Media by herself. Although the members of the media and the paparazzi were gathering right outside the entrance of Guangying Media, they did not dare to forcefully approach Jiang Yuning because Shen Yichen had already made all the necessary arrangements and stationed bodyguards at the entrance of the building to protect Jiang Yuning.
However, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s arrival subsequently caused a heated argument amongst employees of Guangying Media.
&x201C;Our company, Guangying Media, has recently been in the headlines a couple of times solely because of Jiang Yuning. Before she joined the company, we never did face this kind of problems in the past.&x201D;
&x201C;Since her biological father has already died, isn&x2019;t it already predictable that she would look for a godfather instead?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning completely ignored everything that she heard the employees gossiping about as she walked into the company building but as soon as she heard someone mentioning her biological father, she walked right up to the front desk and removed her sunglasses and hat immediately.
&x201C;Do you dare to repeat what you have just said?&x201D;
The employee&x2019;s face turned red immediately and she panicked because she did not expect Jiang Yuning to hear her comment.
&x201C;&x2018;Since her biological father has already died, isn&x2019;t it already predictable that she would look for a godfather instead?&x2019; This was exactly what you said, right?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she repeated the statement that she had just heard.
&x201C;I&x2026;I was just making a casual statement,&x201D; the other party replied, immediately trying to defend herself when she saw her colleagues walking over to observe what was happening.
&x201C;Do you know that your casual statement can hurt a lot of people? If your words are already so vicious when you say it casually, then how much more vicious can you be when saying things on purpose?&x201D;
&x201C;Stop trying to make a big issue out of it. I really did not mean anything&x2014;I was just making a casual statement.&x201D;
&x201C;You&x2026;go and pack up your belongings and leave immediately. You are fired,&x201D; Shen Yichen suddenly said as he appeared together with Vera. &x201C;You may have been making your statements casually, but I am serious when I say that you are fired.&x201D;
&x201C;And the rest of you should also listen up now. You have all been working in the entertainment industry for quite some time now and you should understand that words are like a double-edged sword in this industry. You may think that you are only discussing something casually among yourselves, but you should understand that your words could cause a lot of hurt and trouble to others. Whatever you say will come back to bite you eventually.&x201D;
After he was done lecturing the employees, Shen Yichen brought Jiang Yuning back to his office.
&x201C;Are you still angry?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning shook her head before she replied, &x201C;I am feeling better already. Moreover, you have already taken revenge on my behalf.&x201D;
&x201C;If the two mountains standing behind you find out that there are people who are being so vicious towards you, I am afraid that she would have to pay a bigger price instead of merely getting fired. Well, let&x2019;s get down to business. You can wait for me in the conference room to discuss the public relations matter with the representatives from Xiya Hotel.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning nodded her head. Fortunately, Vera was not around to hear Shen Yichen mentioning the two mountains behind her.
However, at this moment, there were still a few people who were discussing the matter involving Jiang Yuning within Guangying Media. They could not believe that Shen Yichen had personally approached the front desk and fired the employee for shooting her mouth off just because of Jiang Yuning. Which other artiste would have received this kind of preferential treatment from Shen Yichen?
&x201C;Why do they want to discuss the public relations matter anyway? Jiang Yuning did call the chairman of Xiya Hotel her father. So, the employee at the front desk had not said anything wrong. Why should she get fired? Jiang Yuning did in fact got herself another godfather because her own biological father is dead. Why can&x2019;t we say it if it is true?&x201D; Mu Xian told her assistant as they got ready in the dressing room. &x201C;She can just wait&x2014;wait for me to deal with her nicely.&x201D;
&x201C;Sister Mu Xian, why do you hate Jiang Yuning so much?&x201D;
&x201C;If you were in my shoes and you meet with a stumbling block that is blocking your progression to success, would you just let it be?&x201D; Mu Xian replied coldly. &x201C;If I had Jiang Yuning&x2019;s skills and specialty in acknowledging everyone as my godfather, then I obviously do not need to hate everyone who is blocking my path.&x201D;
The public relations matter was dealt with very quickly because both the parties involved had strong evidence to back Jiang Yuning up.
Firstly, Guangying Media would work together with the producers of
Fans and supporters of
What was there to complain about?
Jiang Yuning had not done anything unprofessional, nor did she cut the queue of artistes who were on the waiting list.
This also indirectly proved that Jiang Yuning did not used any underhand means or her relationship with anyone in Xiya Hotel to gain resources or obtain special treatment from the production crew.
Of course, she would have been given the priority anyway, as she was an official artiste under Guangying Media. However, the official statement would put the rumours to rest immediately.
[Even if she was not invited to participate as a guest, this does not mean that Jiang Yuning did not do it.]
[I heard that Jiang Yuning called someone dad over the phone before throwing a tantrum at the deputy director of the program. A short while later, representatives from Xiya Hotel arrived at the studio.]
[Since Guangying Media has already released their official statement regarding the matter, the only thing left to do now is to wait for the public relations department from Xiya Hotel to release their official statement.]
From this point of view, it was obvious that someone had deliberately started the rumour that Jiang Yuning was intimately involved with someone she called her godfather. This was because they did not mention anything about the director of the program, nor did they mention the fact that Jiang Yuning was a major shareholder of Xiya Hotel. Therefore, someone had deliberately emphasized that Jiang Yuning had a wealthy godfather who was helping her to gain resources in the entertainment industry.
Jiang Yuning was even more certain that this was not an accident.
Someone had deliberately planned this.
