The crucial point here was that Qin Zhou had status and had powerful people behind him. Who would dare to oppose him?
Take Yan Bingqing's team as an example; they posted several articles criticizing his artiste, yet the man simply ordered people to take down those posts.
There was no room for even a bit of maneuvering.
She, Yang Mi, and the others felt that this was unfair but did not dare to speak out of anger.
Offending this topnotch manager was indubitably akin to seeking death.
This manager and the superstar had acquired themselves some Huanyu Entertainment shares in the earlier years, and this let them be among the board of directors. Simply put, the two were among Huanyu's top management.
To offend Huanyu's top management, banning and shunning could be done in minutes.
As such, Yan Bingqing did not have the guts to go against Qin Zhou.
She, thus, let the manager support Yun Shishi at her expense.
However, now that even the scenes where she and the rookie acted together were so evilly edited out, she could no longer bear it.
It was just too maddening.
She had never been this angry before.
This Yun Shishi had such great capabilities! Just exactly what capabilities did this newbie have to receive this manager's utmost care and support?
However, since Lin Fengtian had given his directives, she did not dare to seek trouble with the rookie. There was a saying that went: 'The hunter will shoot the bird that sticks out.' With so many people envious of Yun Shishi, someone was bound to mess with her.
It was still hard to dispel her anger. Since she could not afford to offend the newbie, there would surely be no problem with venting her anger on the latter's assistant!
Hence, during lunch, she 'accidentally' spilled her scalding hot tea on Mu Xi.
The assistant cried out in pain. When she lowered her head, she found her arm that was splashed with the tea turning red in an instant.
It was a hot and sunny day.
As the scorching rays shone on her body and arm, it hurt her so much that tears streamed down her face.
Hugging her scalded arm, she bit her lower lip tightly and looked up at her with tearful eyes. She did not dare to voice out her grievance.
The haughty actress gave out a fake smile while eyeing her with condescension. "Oh, dear. It's not done on purpose; I'm sorry."
With that, she looked away and murmured, "If you didn't bump into me, my cup wouldn't tilt your way. Ah, what a waste of my precious Gong Cha."
It was a casual remark, sans a bit of remorse; it did not seem like an apology at all.
She made it sound as if her burn were unworthy of even a mention and could not compare to her spilled tea.
The assistant felt extremely wronged.
She did not bump into her at all! Clearly, the other purposely splashed that boiling hot tea on her.
Now, she was even venomously slandering her!
She clearly knew that this pompous actress was venting her anger on her because the limelight was all on the artiste in her care.
This kind of thing was a common occurrence in the production team.
Furthermore, this was not the first time that this actress had vented her anger on the poor assistants in this manner.
She could only blame herself for not avoiding her.
Her tears trickled down as the petty woman walked to her side. Lowering her head, the actress smiled yet spoke in a sinisterly cold voice. "Go back and tell your master: don't go too far! Does she really think that, with Director Lin's support, she can be so unbridled?"
The assistant nodded in tears and stared at her incredulously.
The actress sneered. The threat in her eyes could not be any more obvious. "She dares to rob me of the limelight? She really doesn't know her place! Make her remember that I am the real top actress in Huanyu! Is she qualified to compete with me for status?!"
Her words struck the assistant dumb, and she could only watch the actress arrogantly leave.
