Employees at Chinese Company Fired After Discussing Kris Wu Being Brand Representative
Back on August 4, Global Times, a media outlet handled by the Chinese Communist Party's People's Daily newspaper, reported that a group of employees at a Chinese company were fired after discussing the possibility of having Kris Wu represent their brand.
According to Global Times, NETA Auto had triggered a discussion on China's Weibo for firing a group of their employees for having discussed having Kris Wu be the brand's representative and "challenging social values."
In a screenshot of a WeChat group chat among the employees of NETA Auto, one marketing staff named Peng Gang had said that the spirit of their company is to give people a second chance, and discussed Kris Wu being the brand's possible representative despite his ongoing sexual assault investigation with the other employees.
Peng Gang said, "This move will make us famous on the internet within just five minutes."
