While she is not the first Chinese social media star to be exposed for excessive photoshop, netizens became unsympathetic to her plight when it was revealed that her real photos were only revealed as she had faced some arguments with friends over having borrowed money and not returned it. She had also allegedly cursed out another friend due to a spat involving a boy.
