An internet celebrity in Việt Nam has been criticised as “uncomely” for simply sitting on the edge of fruit stall in a supermarket.
The female celebrity, who rose to fame in 2009 after winning a beauty pageant and has been working in the showbiz industry as an actress, model and TV producer, posted a photo on Instagram with a caption “[Her name] go to buy cherry” featuring her sitting on plastic bags that fresh fruit would be put in.
While many people applauded her beauty, others said she was “wrong” and “impolite”.
“Who wants to use the bags that she sat on,” one commenter wrote.
The Vietnamese celebrity’s photo reminded people of a picture of Kristen Stewart, an American actress, model and director, posing in a supermarket for Elle magazine in 2014. Stewart was said to look chic and edgy in that picture.
The supermarket photo of the Vietnamese actress also reminded people about another photo of two girls climbing on Buddhist statues in Linh Ứng Pagoda in the northern province of Bắc Giang early last year. One of the girls stood on the statue’s lap while the other sat on the statue’s arm when posing for a photo. This image was also widely panned.
The Vietnamese actress surely did not expect her supermarket photo would receive such criticism. Perhaps she shouldn’t have shot first and asked questions later. — VNS
