China State Media Calls for Investigation Concerning Former EXO Kris and His Sexual Assault Allegations

According to Chinese state media, former EXO member Kris, who will be called Kris Wu from here on out, has gone beyond celebrity drama and has become a significant incident with public-interest implications.

As a result, Chinese politicians and entertainment industry associations say that celebrities deemed to be "immoral" should be banned for life.

Earlier this month, Kris Wu was accused by 19-year-old Chinese influencer and student Du Meizhu of date-raping her when she was only 17 years old.

Du Meizhu claimed that the idol would push young girls to drink and, once they were drunk, would lure them to his bed and assault them without their consent.

Following the news, China's Central Television (CCTV) called for the creation of a better industry-wide mechanism that would force artists to improve their moral characters and raise the standards for becoming a star. They stated that being an artist is not just a profession but also taking up social responsibility

As the Kris Wu situation continues to blow up, it has become more than celebrity gossip and is now an issue that requires comprehensive investigation by the relevant departments. The CCTV says that this must serve as a lesson to think about who deserves to be a star objectively.

China Association of Performing Arts, which the government backs, has stressed the importance of artists adhering to high moral starts. They stated that stars should be judged not only by online reports but based on facts. Artists who are found to be a bad influence will never be treated with a soft hand.

Previously, Kris Wu released a statement saying all the allegations against him were false and that if it were true, he would put himself in jail.

However, Du Meizhu has released further proof, such as a settlement agreement and sending money to her without her consent. Kris Wu has not responded to her latest posts.

Du Meizhu exposed Kris Wu's agency for trying to settle the issue out of court. They offered her 1 million RMB if she were to delete her posts, admit she was wrong, and express shame for spreading fake news. They also asked her not to incite others to accuse Kris Wu of sexual assault.

She replied she would require at least 2 million RMB and that if she were to delete her posts, that Kris Wu's studio should release a legal statement. She also stated she would not apologize.

Du Meizhu demanded that if she accepted, they do not reveal the deal they discussed and not hire any marketing accounts to slander her. If they were to break her terms, she would release all the evidence against Kris Wu.
