On 7th October 2019, Samantha Ko (高海寧) shared photo of herself placing her shoes while sitting on the chair on Instagram and it caused dissatisfactions from a big group of netizens, after deleting the messages pointing that she was inconsiderate. In the afternoon on the following day, Samantha uploaded another photo of herself sitting on the beach chair online and rebutted: “I am very careful in the past as afraid of hurting and disappointing others but nobody asks if I am happy. As for now, I accept that one is impossible to win the liking of everybody and decide to be myself. Since discovering some sense of belonging and deliberately opening many accounts to support yourself, please continue to direct and act solo and I will live my life to the fullest, but you have to continue in this way.”

Some netizens were surprised that Samantha rejected to post an apology and find an explanation to defend herself. They did not believe 10 criticisms came from the same account and Samantha replied: “I did not say that all accounts are fake and reckon someone keeps opening multiple accounts to blow up the matter. Thus, I choose to ignore and delete all messages as he/she will definitely fails. I decide to face it bravely this time and did wipe the chair after taking photos. Anyway, I am the one sitting on it and it is unnecessary to be mad about it. I am a person with good upbringing and let me emphasise that this message remains. I had replied him/her but disappeared suddenly. I wonder why……”
