[Epoch Times September 15, 2021](Epoch Times reporter Tong Yijia comprehensive report) Marvel’s first Chinese hero movie “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) ) Since its release, word-of-mouth and box office have been bursting, and the Chinese-Canadian actor Simu Liu, who starred in the film, has risen to fame. However, after he became popular, he triggered the CCP’s online naval forces to pull out and accused him of “humiliating China” in his earlier interviewed remarks. In this regard, he responded to the IG for the first time.
After its recent release in North America, Hong Kong, Taiwan and other places, “Shang Qi” received quite a good response. The box office continued to report success. The film received 93% fresh reviews on the film review website Rotten Tomatoes.
However, after the film’s starring Liu Simu became popular, the mainland’s online naval account “Dibaguanwei” revealed his remarks that “many people in China died of hunger” during an earlier interview, raising doubts about whether the film could be released on the mainland. Many Chinese movie fans who were looking forward to it were disappointed.
Liu Simu was pulled out by the “Emperor’s official Weibo” 4 years ago in the interview footage shows that at the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the founding of Canada, Liu Simu talked about the reasons why he immigrated to Canada from China with his parents, and what Canada means to him. .
At that time, he said in English: “When I was very young, my parents would tell me the story that they grew up under the rule of Communist China, saying that many people died of hunger and they lived in the third world. Then they will feel that Canada is a place where they can live freely and create a better future for their children.”
After “Diba Guanwei” turned out this interview, it immediately sparked a heated discussion among mainland netizens and believed that Liu Simu was “true” and “a historical fact.” When he immigrated to Canada from Harbin, Heilongjiang Province with his parents, he has now completely regarded himself as a Canadian, shouting “Shang Qi” not to be shown in China”, thinking that the movie role is “humiliating China”.
After several days of precipitation, Liu Simu responded on IG on September 13th, stating that the film has received huge support from all over the world, including fans in China. He also pointed out that the surrounding media seemed to want to divide the fans and turn everyone into enemies. He said: “I see everyone’s kindness and empathy. I know we have fans from all over the world. They are all looking forward to this movie and waiting to make history with us.” Finally, he wrote it in simplified Chinese. : “Thanks to all Marvel fans in China!”
In this regard, Chinese netizens reacted bipolarly. Some people said: “Although hope is slim, I still hope to get there.” “I look forward to it! I hope that the mainland will set the stage as soon as possible and support Liu Simu.” Others said, “Why don’t you laugh at China?” Dogs don’t watch.”
