NBA Star Kobe Bryant arrived at Taiwan on thursday, at night he held a brief private party, [Xiao Zhu] Show Luo attended the party, but his attendence made some internet users angry :"He doesn't even know how to speak English, just trying to [attract attention again]."
This made Xiao Zhu who was invited to attend feel rather irritated.
After Xiao Zhu was being critisized that his attendence in Michael Jackson's commemoration activity was too "high profile", he is being critisized again because as he attended Nike's party last Thursday. He took a picture with NBA's Bryant, and Japan's fashion king Fujihara Hiroshi and this picture was exposed onto the internet which caused internet users to critisize him even more. Internet users made up stories while looking at the picture, as they know that Xiao Zhu can't speak english they assumed that he was "kicked to the side", and Bryant only chatted to Fujihara Hiroshi.
Xiao Zhu's manager Xiao Shuang was there that evening. She explained that Xiao Zhu had also designed shoes for Nike. That evening he was invited as a "representative for the entertainment industry" to attend the activity held in Nike's flagship store, and as Bryant had to leave Taiwan at 8 that night, the 3 of them only took one picture, and Bryant had to hurriedly leave.
Xiao Shuang also explained that Xiao Zhu never conceals the fact that he doesn't know how to speak English well, but as one of Nike's superior introduced Show as "Taiwan's No.1 idol, and also loves to play basketball" to Bryant, the two of them greeted each other in a "basketball way". After Bryant left, Xiao Zhu chatted with Fujihara Hiroshi.Xiao Zhu already knows about the criticism that the internet users are giving him
, he feels rather put out. Xiao Shuang said: "Recently everything that Xiao Zhu does is being enlarged, he was invited to go. It was the company (Nike's) request to take a picture and write about it, the picture was exposed by the company, and he's still being critisized for that, I really don't know what to say anymore."
