Here is a side-by-side comparison.

And another one, just for good measure.

If you can’t tell, the photos were edited in a way that made Shu Qi’s skin look paler.

Although the fan probably meant no harm, the edited photos caused quite a bit of kerfuffle, and not just from people on social media, but also from Shu Qi herself.

Here is Shu Qi’s response to the touch up.

It roughly translates to “Why don’t you go be a fan of a white person?”.


The incident reminded Twitter users of another incident involving Hong Kong actress, Anita Yuen.
