Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) is a mother of 3 children and has been working in Mainland China recently. Earlier, her husband, Philip Lee (李乘德) uploaded photo of taking his sons for strolling via Instagram and the netizens pointed he relied on Myolie financially. He responded he had been working for many years and owned several companies and the business was not bad. Subsequently, Myolie defended Philip that he helped to spend more time with his kids when she was working in China in English language.

However, some netizens were unhappy that Myolie’s message about working in China, questioned about not using the word Mainland and suspected she divided China and Hong Kong. The netizens said: “You have been working in Mainland China and your family is in Hong Kong which is part of China. Please take note of your words. We support you for more than 10 years and assume you recognise your Chinese nationality. Looks like we think too much and Hong Kong is indeed a “smelly” Hong Kong.”

Although Philip deleted the post and Myolie’s response disappeared, but the netizens remained furious and even pointed she failed to make donations to 2021 Henan floods. They were also unhappy that Myolie mentioned about the National Day of the People’s Republic of China on Weibo and Mid-Autumn Festival via Instagram only.
