Zhu Ji the ‘Movie Emperor’ sent a Weibo post!
This news was more exciting than his secret marriage and child! Previously, even when Movie Emperor Zhu was getting denounced by the whole world, he only sent four words: “A clean hand needs no washing.”(1)
This “Clean hands need no washing” was bullshit in their eyes, netizens didn’t believe it. It could only appease some anti-fans hearts.
Since then, he hadn’t posted anything on social media.
However, the unexpected news of a hidden marriage and child could blow up the Immortal Buddha like the ‘Movie Emperor’, and netizens exploded instantly.
Only his brain dead fans were on the verge of tears. They didn’t take the time to have a closer look at the Weibo post of their own idol. They quickly commented and waited expectantly for it to be seen by their idol.
–Woo…Hoo…Woo, brother, you finally showed up!
–Brother, my hubby! Please, reveal the truth quickly, those slanders against you are rubbish and really disgusting.
–So brother, you are really not married right?? But this child is yours, so … Who is her mother?
In addition to expressing their joy, the fans were also wondering where the child came from.
Of course, there were still more passers-by and haters on this Weibo post, especially haters and the Water Army, which flooded the comment area in less than half an hour.
–Tut Tut, Zhu Ji you Shady Emperor, your shrinking tortoise head finally came out of hiding, unmarried and a child? So this is your illegitimate daughter? Which one gave birth to her? Is it from the hidden rules actress?
–If it’s an illegitimate daughter, then she’s an illegitimate daughter. And they’re all treating her like she’s a legitimate one!
–You anti-fans better behave yourselves! *Sobs* Was it only me who noticed? Our ‘Movie Emperor’ did not care one bit when his reputation was ruined when his company terminated his contract when all netizens were pointing fingers at him and even when all his public appearances were cancelled. Even though he had to pay a huge compensation and lost everything he had… none of these things made him speak up for himself. However, when it was about his daughter, he came forward immediately! He must be the Father of the Year! He must love his baby so much!
This comment quickly became the most liked comment and was also highly praised by the ‘Movie Emperor’ himself.
The netizens were soon distracted and began to contemplate about the post that the ‘Movie Emperor had posted on Weibo.
–’Don’t bully my daughter’, I read it over ten times!!! Look! The daughter of the ‘Movie Emperor’ is the one with real power!
–Ouch, ouch, ouch! I was a passer-by. What should I do if I was hurt by this sentence?
–Hello, the cute little girl who has occupied my brother’s arms, you have successfully attracted the attention of this aunty!
Soon, Weibo was ablaze with comments and it even made it to the top of the hot search list. It was at this time that the haters and the Water Army commented:
–What kind of divine intervention was this? These were the top of hot searches and comments:
–‘Don’t bully my daughter!’, #Zhu Ji the Movie Emperor#, #just said this much#, #Movie Emperor is unmarried#, #Movie Emperor had an illegitimate daughter#, and #Movie Emperor’s daughter controls him#.
Zhu Ji opened Weibo to see these few comments, then he shook his head and smiled.
The little dumpling lying beside him was sleeping so peacefully had unknowingly become so famous. At this time, the majority of people were very curious about her!
The system knew but didn’t bother about it. It had already gone through two worlds with the little dumpling. It knew very well how popular the little human cub was among the adults. With her bad luck and the power over the villain, all the fuss on the Internet was nothing!
‘No intention of pursuing stars’ followed the hot search, also looked at the “Entertainment Frontline” and Zhu Ji’s microblog, and stared at the sentence “Don’t bully my daughter”. After looking at it for a long time, she lay down on the bed, tossing and turning as if she couldn’t sleep.
She didn’t know what kind of psychological influence she was feeling after looking at everything. After a bit of hesitation, she opened her Weibo page to post the photos she took that day at the supermarket of the father-daughter duo.
POST: “His daughter.” JPG。
The account ID of ‘No intention of pursuing stars’ was originally called ‘Ji’s follower’. She had been fighting on the front line of chasing Zhu Ji for many years and had accumulated many fans who also liked ‘Movie Emperor’ Zhu.
This Weibo post immediately reached top searches.
As for the true appearance of Zhu Ji’s daughter, it had aroused the curiosity of countless netizens and even passers-by.
If one would think about it, although Zhu Ji had been famous in the entertainment industry for so many years, he was still like a Buddhist monk(T/N: No affairs with women). He had never been involved in any scandal. Apart from the black material from this period of time, he was truly a perfect man.
The impression of ‘Movie Emperor’ Zhu in the hearts of these fans was not just the pure and white moonlight, but even the passers-by thought that he also should not be attacked and suffered by himself. No one deserved such a man!
But this type of person now had a child! And was even a true down to the bone daughter-con. He immediately seemed less untouchable and more mortal. The netizens thought to themselves, wow, ‘Movie Emperor’ Zhu also has a side like this?
‘No intention of pursuing stars’ posted two photos. She took those pictures using Apple’s latest mobile phone so images were not pixelated. Although it was taken from a far distance, the pictures of both father and daughter were clear enough.
‘No intention of pursuing stars’ met this father-daughter duo at the supermarket. At that time, she only thought that the man looked very familiar. So she subconsciously followed them all the way to the cashier’s counter and snapped those photos.
The first photo was taken in the supermarket shopping area. The man was wearing a mask and pushing a shopping cart. A little girl in a cartoon skirt was wearing the same mask on her face. She was sitting upright in the car with her hands in front of her body and her big eyes were curious. She looked bright and lovely.
The ‘Movie Emperor’ was looking down at the small head of the little dumpling in front of him. His brows and eyes were warm and glistening, with a light smile. The years had been kind to him.
Father and daughter’s eyebrows and eyes were at least seven points similar. While sitting in the cart with her father pushing, it was evident to see that she had inherited her father’s good looks. Her white tender skin was as white as the ‘Movie Emperor’.
Another picture was taken at the cashier’s counter. At that time, the little dumpling said something which made her father put on a difficult expression as if he didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. He held her and bowed his head to say something to her. The picture of one big and one small was too warm. They were a pair of father and daughter that gave onlookers fuzzy and warm feelings!
–Ah, I’m dead!!! This is what a god-like father and daughter pair looks like, although the child’s face did not show much, my brain has already created a lovely image enough to burst into tears!
—Drawing in a sharp breath. I suddenly feel that it’s good that my brother has a baby. At least he doesn’t seem to be affected by those sunspots. He must stay strong for the baby!
–How sweet! I didn’t expect that Movie Emperor Zhu had such a side to him!
–Just curious as to what the child looks like?
As soon as these two photos came out, they slightly relieved netizens’ thirst. They went to ‘Movie Emperor’ Zhu’s Weibo to ask him to release the photos of the cute baby!
–“Don’t kill the baby!”
The anti-fans and Water Army were so dumbfounded that the focus had now shifted to the pair of father and daughter. On the contrary, they added a lot of new gossip to the pair. Even the comments were slowly turned around and, unknowingly the earlier infamy and black material was found baseless. Slowly the black turned to white.
Some people said that ‘Movie Emperor’ Zhu loved his daughter very much/the love ‘Movie Emperor’ had for his daughter was very deep. He couldn’t be the same man shown in the black material who played big cards, oppressed newcomers and had ulterior motives. New people could still do drugs!
“How can a man with a soft spot ruin his future?”
Previously, whenever Zhu Ji returned home after receiving the prize, as soon as he got off the plane, he would be asked by the police to be taken away for inspection. Although he was released in less than half a day, he was asked by the police to keep such sensitive matters secret because of his already fallen image. When he came out, the outside world had already turned over the sky.
Even if the fans argued that ‘Movie Emperor’ Zhu didn’t do drugs, how could he have been released early if he was not innocent? Nevertheless, the anti-fans still held firm to this point. The marketing company was even more scheming, saying that ‘Movie Emperor’ Zhu had the habit of using drugs, but had received news of the audit ahead of time, so he did not take drugs during this short period of time. He could not be checked for the time being.
In the past, no one would have believed such a farfetched reason. However, with the bombardment of comments from the Water Army. The tags #playing big cards#(2) and #new potential rules#(3) with videos and photos, the Movie Emperor’s characters were put in doubt, and many people believed it.
Now, his name was being cleared. The head of the Water Army looked at the comments and hot searches on Weibo gritted his teeth and called Mr O to discuss the members with special remarks.
“Hello, did you see the hot search comments on Weibo? What should we do now? We can’t control it anymore… ”
The person on the other side seemed to be angry, in a deliberately lowered voice with a bit of exasperation, he replied, “I told you before to take control of the flow of things, Zhu Ji is a person not easily angered, if you can make him send Weibo post, it’s good enough for you!”
He said, “Since it has already come to this, we’ll make things worse and focus on the child’s biological mother; illegitimate daughter, unmarried child, and corrupt conduct.”
“I’ll teach you how to do it? I’ll give you another million when it’s done. Don’t contact me through this number anymore. I’ll get in touch with you. If you can’t do well, don’t ask for this million! I’ll ask someone else who can do it!”
The head of the Water Army was hung up on and scowled. He didn’t know how much hatred he had for ‘Movie Emperor’ Zhu. He wanted to kill this person. He wouldn’t have to ruin him if it wasn’t for the money!!/If it wasn’t for the money, he would not have ruined him!
Yinyin woke up and ran out of the living room since she didn’t see her father beside her. On the table, breakfast was already prepared on the table; fried golden eggs, soft rice porridge and a plate of green vegetables.
The breakfast was very simple, but currently, it was also the best life that Zhu Ji could provide for this child.
He sold his last house, went out to remit the compensation, now he only had 20,000 yuan in hand.
There was no rent, but he had no job and no source of income. What was more, according to the current popularity of the Internet, if he went out to find a job, he might be recognized easily.
In order to provide well for the child, Zhu Ji was currently thinking about how to find a new job. He did not ask for wealth, just to be able to give his daughter everything that the other children had?
Early in the morning, the little dumpling was very happy to see that her father had cooked a meal for her. She greeted him good morning and without her father’s urging, she ran to the bathroom, stepped on the small stool, and conscientiously brushed her teeth.
She was not very flexible, clumsily brushing up and down, left and right, while carefully counting to 20 before stopping.
After brushing her teeth, Zhu Ji took a towel and wet it with hot water. He wiped her face and patted her freshly cleaned face and said, “Go! Eat now!”
“Daddy, where are you going?”
After breakfast, a strange uncle paid them a visit to their home. Father said that he had to go out and she should stay obediently with her ‘uncle’ together. Yinyin held onto the door with her face full of questions.
This was the first time Yang Bingbing met his brother and master’s daughter, his little niece!
She was as cute as he had imagined, her facial features were exquisite. Her eyes were round and filled with curiosity when they were aimed at a person. Her face looked similar to a fat Zhu Ji’s, face showing an array of cute expressions like a cute expression package(4). As soon as Yang Bingbing stepped through the door, he couldn’t help laughing and fell on the sofa.
The little dumpling looked at him curiously for a while but then decided to dislike this stupid uncle. She looked at Daddy in confusion. She was curious, her tone full of disdain when she asked, “Daddy, what’s wrong with this strange uncle?”
Yang Bingbing, ”………”
Zhu Ji smiled and patted her small head, “Daddy needs to go out for a while. You stay at home with this uncle. Daddy will come back later.”
Afterwards, he explained a few things to Yang Bingbing, the latter hesitated for a while and said, “Brother Ji, you can simply go to my father’s company to work, no one will dare to embarrass you!”
Yang Bingbing’s family was considered wealthy. His family had a small company with an annual output value of several million yuan, which was enough for a family of three to live a good life. He worked in the entertainment industry because he really loved it.
His Brother Ji refused his help. “Don’t step into this muddy water. Your father’s company is built with his painstaking effort. If something goes wrong because of me, we’ll all feel bad.”
Zhu Ji patted him on the shoulder and instructed, “Look after Yinyin. When hungry, the food is ready in the refrigerator, you can eat it after heating it up at noon. The rice in the rice cooker is also ready. You can have lunch at about 12:00…”
“Yinyin likes to drink milk. When she’s hungry, heat it up for her. Pay attention to sweets and snacks. Don’t let her eat too much…”
Yang Bingbing was stunned when he heard his big brother. Looking at his brother, he reached out and shook his shoulders, “Brother, you should not have changed this much, right? How can you be so long-winded that you can catch up with the Tangseng!” (T/N: Xuanzang (602-664) Tang Dynasty Buddist monk and translator, who travelled to India 629-645.)
Originally, Yang Bingbing did not want to ask where his Brother Ji was staying. He was afraid that he would expose his location and bring him trouble. Although he was curious about his niece, he also wanted to be able to see him again after the storm.
He didn’t expect that Zhu Ji would call him early this morning and ask him to babysit while he needed to go out.
Yang Bingbing, ”…….”
Was he the type of person who could take care of a child??? He was afraid that his elder brother was under some sort of misunderstanding!!!
Zhu Ji was also a top student on the college entrance examination. When he was a university student, he attended the Department of computer science at DIDU University. Later, he entered the entertainment industry and stopped studying.
Four years of knowledge in the university only took two and a half years for him to complete, then he continued to study as a postgraduate student in the university. Therefore, he was a true ‘study god’who was well-known in the entertainment circles. He did not take things for granted at all.
When Zhu Ji was a graduate student, he participated in a research project. His mentor praised him for his talent and personally guided him. Unfortunately, because of his busy schedule and his sincere love for acting, Zhu Ji did not pursue a doctoral degree after post-graduation and refused to stay when asked by his mentor, which made his mentor feel frustrated.
The person Zhu Ji was visiting today was his mentor Professor Yu De.
After Daddy left, the little dumpling and the strange uncle glared at each other with big eyes. Yang Bingbing touched his nose and felt despised by his little niece. What should he do?
All the blame was on her looks, she looked so much like his brother, he couldn’t help but laugh!!!
Yinyin thought about it for a moment. She brought a plastic stool, climbed up and stood on it, eye-to-eye with the strange uncle. She asked, “Uncle, where did my father go?”
Just now father and this strange uncle said a lot, and it was too quick for her to follow and understand.
Yang Bingbing looked at the little dumpling who was standing eye to eye with himself, taking advantage of his brother’s absence, he pinched her chubby face, “Your father, eh, he is too poor. He has gone out to carry bricks to support you!”
The man deliberately teased the little dumpling, frowned and said, “Oh, for you, Brother Ji is very hard-working. He wants to earn two people’s worth of food money. If you have a meal, your daddy can’t have a meal, and he will have to be hungry. What a pity!”
“How about it? Yinyin can also come with you, uncle? Uncle has a lot of money. I will take you to eat delicious food!”
Yinyin stood on the stool with her hands on her waist. Her big round eyes glared at him and said, “Go away. Yinyin doesn’t blame uncle Yang. Yinyin can raise her father!”
The little dumpling felt heartbroken. She knew how hard it was to move bricks. The uncle who used to live in the small shack in her past also moved bricks. It was said that it was very heavy and these stones had to be exposed under the sun. It was hard work. It was the hardest work in the world!
That big uncle was always sad and said that it was hard to earn money.
The little dumpling couldn’t watch the cartoon any more. Her father wouldn’t eat snacks and candy she bought. She frowned and suddenly her eyes brightened. She looked at the strange uncle in front of her with great interest. “Uncle, let’s go and pick up bottles.”
“There are so many bottles in the community! Pick them all up and sell them. I can raise Dad! Dad doesn’t have to carry bricks anymore!”
Yang Bingbing was stunned, looking at the serious expression on the little dumpling’s small face, he saw a vague glimpse of his brother, who was as stubborn as her.
When the daughter’s identity was exposed on the Internet, the father went out to look to work, ready to make money to raise his daughter.
This small child actually said with conviction that she was going to raise her father…….
He pinched the little dumping’s small face and said, “Do you know how hard it is to pick up bottles?”
The little dumpling blinked. She was the best at picking up bottles! “It’s not hard. I can sell them and earn money to support my father.”
Yang Bingbing felt very sour when he heard this. Although Brother Ji was the person he respected, he was really envious!
“Let’s go, Uncle, come with me, let’s make money!”
