It’s pretty absurd at this point that having been in LA for all of two days that C-actor Wang Yibo manages to generate not one but two controversies already. I don’t think this is an actual controversy in that the brand itself is mad but more like yet another sign that Wang Yibo needs better handlers or at least pause before posting anything. The actor has been in LA for the Chanel trunk show and the day after he posted a picture on his SNS showing him in front of the Hollywood sign. He’s crouched down seemingly taking a picture on his phone himself and the controversy is that he’s using an iPhone but he’s the official spokesperson for the Chinese phone brand Redmi. It’s pretty given that spokespersons use the product in real life they get paid to shill for as the bare minimum, and in the past there have been stars getting grief for being a spokesperson for one brand and using the direct competitor in real life so this is nothing new. After getting called out, Wang Yibo immediately deleted the picture.
