One of the more popular current models in Hong Kong goes by the stage name Angelababy. She’s been in several films, released some records, has her name attached to some restaurants and other businesses – all by the age of 23. I’ve got no idea if she possesses any actual talent but she’s certainly easy on the eyes.
(It’s been rumored that she’s undergone extensive plastic surgery to achieve her current look, which would not be unusual in this part of the world.)
Why mention her in a blog post here (aside from the opportunity to run a picture of a pretty girl)? Well, she was a spokesmodel for Panasonic. And she leaked Panasonic’s GF5 camera to the world by posting a photo of it on Instagram. Panasonic has retaliated – canceling her contract, demanding a full refund on her contract plus 10% additional as a “penalty.” If you’re interested, you can view the original story here (in Chinese) and a partial translation and discussion here. The matter will be settled in a Beijing court.
Someone should have told her to stick to posting pictures of her meals on Instagram.
