Feces thrown at Edison at Xmas party
HONG Kong actor Edison Chen, whose pictures in various compromising positions with several female stars circulated in the Internet last year, had faeces thrown at him at a Christmas party in Hong Kong.
Sin Chew Daily reported that a man held a bucket of faeces and went up to the stage hoping to empty it on him.
Fortunately, Chen saw itcoming and managed to quickly move aside.
He ended up with only drops of faeces on his clothes.
The incident shook the Chinese entertainment world just like the exposure of Chen’s sex photos scandal last year. The man was arrested.
