In this video clip, Yan Bingqing had slapped Yun Shishi six times with a sinister look in her eyes. The force of each slap was so shocking the latter had eventually fallen to the ground.
Not only did she not help her up, she even smiled surreptitiously at her. Her vicious appearance was far from her public image of a goddess. It was as if there were two of her.
The netizens played the video several times but did not see the newly debuted actress being arrogant and rude to her senior as what the rumors had claimed.
On the contrary, she had great respect for all her colleagues. Even though her co-actress had, time and again, purposely committed mistakes to prolong the slapping-scene shoot, she was always sincere when expressing her apology and appreciation to the crew.
She was ever very polite and modest.
On the other hand, Yan Bingqing's behavior during filming was very unlike her public image.
Rude, unreasonable, arrogant, narcissistic… Her ugly face was suddenly exposed to the netizens. They felt indignant over being fooled.

The goddess in their hearts turned out to be such a vile person. Each of them found her viciousness and cruelty hard to accept; at the same time, they were able to see her true colors clearly.
When her hardcore fans saw this video, they were even more furious.
