The ongoing saga in the Peng Shuai Me Too sexual assault allegation against a top CCP leader has taken another bizarre turn. When confronted by a reporter from a pro-Beijing Singaporean newspaper, Shuai denied ever making the allegation.
How convenient. When the story first broke, the rising tennis star disappeared and her name and the word “tennis” were banned from the Chinese internet. But following a global backlash, she again is back in the public eye, even seen hanging out with former NBA superstar Yao Ming at an event. It was at this event that the pro-China reporter just happened to seek her out.
In what appeared to be a scripted response, Shuai told the reporter it was important to emphasize that she was never assaulted by anyone. China Uncensored’s Chris Chappell has the story and also discusses the discovery of a baby dinosaur in China.
