aespa‘s Ningning receives criticism for supporting Chinese short track speed skating team for 1st gold medal at Olympics
Ningning, an aespa representative, was criticised for his support of the Chinese short track speed skate team to win its first Olympic gold medal.
China’s short-track speed skating gold medal has been controversial. Kwak Yoon Gy, a Korean competitor, claimed that China had cheated the race. Ningning, however, congratulated two Chinese medalists on their victory at the “Beijing 2022 winter Olympics”, which has been criticized by netizens.
The Chinese team’s previous runner in the relay race allegedly did not properly touch the next player. Ningning’s post has been criticized and a community crackdown began. According to Netizens:
“Screencaptured Ningning’s cheering post on Facebook, it was then deleted.”
