Would the matter drag on for another ten days?
Since Jiang Yuning would already be dragged into the matter no matter what it was, what difference would another ten days make? Anyway, Jiang Yuning was already used to being in the headlines for the past few years.
Therefore, Jiang Yuning disregarded Shen Yichen and Xiao Chennan&x2019;s advice and went ahead with her own plans to deal with the matter. She felt that there was a time for everything and if she did not express what she truly felt about the situation right now, then she might live to regret it in the future if Vera got hurt because of this.
Jiang Yuning went online immediately before she posted a comment on her social media profile on the first day of Chinese New Year.
@JiangJianglovestheScenery: &x201C;Come on, everyone. Go ahead and scold me! Is this all you are capable of now?&x201D;
As soon as Jiang Yuning posted her comment online, it went viral almost immediately and Xiao Chennan&x2019;s female fans flocked over to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s profile.
[Do you think that we won&x2019;t dare to scold you? You are a crazy woman!]
[Since you like to be scolded, then we will fulfill your wish.]
[Jiang Yuning, your agent is the same type of person as you are!]
[Both servant and master have the same character. Both of them are equally despicable.]
[Jiang Yuning, were you the one who taught your servant to follow your footsteps and look for a gold sponsor to look after her?]
When the Ginger Candies saw all of the comments, they felt as though they were about to explode in rage. Their idol did not do anything wrong and she was not the one involved in the romantic relationship with the film emperor. So, why was their empress getting insulted and yelled at on the Internet?
At this time, Jiang Yuning sent a text message personally to Xue Li to inform the Ginger Candies that they should not intervene or engage in any arguments with the netizens who were criticizing her.
The Ginger Candies could only groan as they were all extremely upset.
[Why is Empress Jiang asking us to hold back and not retaliate? Don&x2019;t you think that these people have really gone overboard by referring to Vera as a dog? Empress Jiang did not even get insults as humiliating as this in the past.]
[What happened to Empress Jiang? Why do I feel as though she is not that intelligent this time?]
[Don&x2019;t you guys understand her intention? Empress Jiang is only doing this because she wants to help Vera and the film emperor. She wants to divert the haters&x2019; attention towards her so that Vera and Xiao Chennan would attract lesser firepower. Empress Jiang has always attached great importance to the people that she loves and cares for. This was already confirmed when she defended and supported Jin Mingchen in the past.]
[Yes, yes! She did the same thing when there were rumors circulating about her teacher, Yao Fan, in the past. However, this time there is no way that she could fix this situation so easily. Therefore, Empress Jiang has decided to use this kind of method to help Vera and the film emperor. She is such a sweetheart.]
[But my heart is really aching for her. Why is my idol getting scolded when it is someone else&x2019;s relationship?]
[We should stop complaining already. Empress Jiang is the one getting scolded but she is not even complaining and she is accepting it willingly. All we can do for her now is to show her our love and support. I think that the reason why she is doing this is because she believes that protecting her friends is more important than getting scolded by the netizens.]
Therefore, the Ginger Candies kept quiet and held back their voices without arguing with the haters. On the other hand, Xiao Chennan&x2019;s female fans did not hold back at all as they continued insulting and scolding Jiang Yuning.
Very soon, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s post had attracted more than two million likes. More than 300,000 hate comments on her post were all contributed by Xiao Chennan&x2019;s female fans.
Of course, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s efforts did not go to waste because she had successfully attracted the attention of majority of Xiao Chennan&x2019;s female fans.
Afterwards, the topic #Jiang Yuning is begging to be scolded# started trending on the Internet and eventually made it to the top of the hot search. In fact, most of the people and the passers-by who saw the post could understand why Jiang Yuning was acting that way.
[Is Jiang Yuning crazy? Hasn&x2019;t she been criticized enough in the past few years?]
[Why is she doing this to herself when she has just gotten her title as Empress Jiang?]
[I think I can fully understand why Jiang Yuning is doing this. She is using her own method to defend and protect her agent. Why else would she want to get scolded for no reason at all? She is just trying to reduce the amount of firepower that Vera and Xiao Chennan will receive.]
[True that. Jiang Yuning is a true friend.]
[I really like her attitude and personality. Regardless of the criticism and scolding that she knows she would receive; she is still so determined to stand up for and defend her friend.]
[Actually, I really think that Xiao Chennan&x2019;s female fans are too much. Xiao Chennan is working hard to earn his own money and he worked hard to achieve everything that he has today. What is so wrong about him having a girlfriend? Moreover, Vera is actually quite beautiful. I really wonder how beautiful or good-looking Xiao Chennan&x2019;s female fans are that they actually have the guts to call her ugly.]
The Internet was filled with news about Vera and Xiao Chennan but Jiang Yuning had already shielded them from half of the firepower that they would have otherwise received.
Jiang Yuning&x2019;s efforts gave Xiao Chennan&x2019;s agency a chance to breathe a little.
At this time, Vera&x2019;s plane had just landed at the airport in Luo City.
As soon as Vera turned on her cell phone, she immediately received a phone call from the young paparazzo. This was because Jiang Yuning had specifically instructed the young paparazzo to escort Vera to X Society&x2019;s base before Vera found out about the news.
The young paparazzo estimated the timing of Vera&x2019;s arrival and he had dialled Vera&x2019;s cell phone number repeatedly until he finally got hold of her. When he was finally connected to Vera, he quickly said over the phone, &x201C;Sister Vera, I am here to pick you up from the airport. Something has happened. You have to come to X Society&x2019;s headquarters with me.&x201D;
Vera did not think too much about it before she agreed immediately. As soon as she got out of the arrival hall at the airport, the young paparazzo quickly dragged her into his car.
&x201C;What is the matter?&x201D; Vera asked because she could sense that the young paparazzo was behaving in a weird manner.
&x201C;Nothing. We are just in a hurry.&x201D;
The young paparazzo opened the car door for Vera and quickly ushered her into the car. At this time, Vera suddenly received a phone call from Xiao Chennan.
When Vera saw the number on her caller ID, she answered her phone immediately. &x201C;Brother Nan, what is the matter?&x201D;
Xiao Chennan was relieved when he heard Vera&x2019;s voice. &x201C;Vera, just stay at home after you get home later. Wait for me to come over and look for you tonight.&x201D;
&x201C;You&x2026;are coming back to Luo City today? Why? Don&x2019;t you have to continue filming?&x201D;
&x201C;I need to do something in Luo City. Be good and listen to me.&x201D;
&x201C;Well, okay then,&x201D; Vera replied in an obedient manner. However, she was really curious to find out why the people around her were all acting so weird today.
It was only when&x2026;
Vera suddenly received a notification on the entertainment news which was related to Jiang Yuning. Vera could not help but laugh out loud as soon as she read the title of the article. &x201C;Why is Yuning begging to be scolded? What is she up to again?&x201D;
&x201C;Well&x2026;Sister Vera, don&x2019;t you know that Sister Yuning is a little eccentric sometimes? I believe she is doing that just to interact with her fans. Look at the dark circles under your eyes. I think that you should rest for a while now before we head into the warzone,&x201D; the young paparazzo quickly replied as he drove away from the airport and headed towards X Society&x2019;s headquarters.
When they finally arrived at X Society, Vera could no longer hold back her curiosity and she started to ask, &x201C;What is wrong with all of you? All of you are acting so weird.&x201D;
At this time, the young paparazzo finally showed Vera the news that was released all over the media outlets earlier today.
&x201C;Sister Vera, your relationship with the film emperor has been exposed and it is now all over the Internet.&x201D;
Vera&x2019;s mind went blank as soon as she saw the news. Her hands started trembling uncontrollably. It was no wonder Xiao Chennan was coming back to Luo City later that night, and this was also the reason the young paparazzo had been behaving so strangely.
Vera felt as though her heart was about to be torn apart when she saw all the harsh comments on the Internet.
&x201C;The film emperor&x2019;s female fans are all making a big scene right now but Brother Nan stood up and publicly admitted that you are his girlfriend. He did that to protect you, but&x2026;&x201D;
Vera turned around and started walking away because she could not stay and listen any longer. However, the young paparazzo quickly stopped her. &x201C;Where are you going?&x201D;
&x201C;I need to return to the company now.&x201D;
&x201C;Even if you go back to the company now, things will not get any better. Since this matter is already out in the public, Brother Nan would definitely be looking for ways to protect you. Moreover, I cannot allow you to leave just like that because Sister Yuning has already instructed me to protect you and keep an eye on you. You should not let her efforts go to waste.&x201D;
After that, the young paparazzo then explained the reason Jiang Yuning had asked the netizens to scold her.
&x201C;Sister Yuning has received more than half a million comments since she posted her comment on her social media account. Most of them are Xiao Chennan&x2019;s female fans who are there to criticize and scold her. This is the first time that Sister Yuning has been scolded like this. Even when she was blacklisted in the past, the netizens had never once scolded her like this. However, Sister Yuning does not care at all as long as she is able to protect you. She understands you very well and she knows your weaknesses. Therefore, she is doing all she can to protect you from cyber violence. So, please just listen and act accordingly to her arrangements, okay?&x201D;
Vera could feel tears welling up in her eyes as soon as she heard the young paparazzo&x2019;s words.
Why were they doing this for her?
Who was she?
She was just an agent.
How could she allow an artiste whom she was managing to step forward and bear all the pressure and criticism on her behalf?
