Innocent till proven guilty, just remember this and never lose sight of it.

Just because someone accused you doesn't mean you did it, in this age of supersonic communications rumour can spread and balloon like wild fire.

repeatedly lured young women to have sexual relations,

As if it isn't normal for teenage boys to try to do that.

And the relevance of that is…?

Instead, his staff who was present forced her to drink. 

Err... umm... yeah. Why doesn't anybody care about this staff member forcing underage girls to drink alcohol.

Isn't forcing young teen girls to drink alcohol against the law?

He is 30 years old.

Still “normal”?

BurningBush. Aside from your apparently more pressing views on teenage promiscuity and underage drinking, anything to share about rape?

I’ll go first. Rape is never justifiable. If he’s found guilty then career over and time in the big house.

Over to you.

I don't know why women still fall for these old tricks. Promising a career? Being invited at night into a club or bar? Drinking alcohol?

These are all the red flags that should have set up warning signals from miles away. The whole purpose is to get you drunk and spend the night with you. You have to be really ignorant not to expect anything else. And yu are screwed if they record you or take pictures.

If you meet someone for a career opportunity, why can't it be in broad daylight while having a nice lunch?

How about teenagers? Read the article.

You have to be really ignorant not to expect anything else. 

Didn’t take long for someone to blame the girls.

Because of course, starstruck teenage girls are famous for their restrained and sensible behaviour.

Who knows with this one, she says she thought they were starting a relationship, but because that wasnt in the cards....

Have a look at his wikipedia page quick!!!!!!

Some prankster has changed his Chinese name:

Why visit China?....It's like rolling the dice

 Rape is never justifiable.

Agreed, each person has absolute authority over what enters their body.

That can not be changed by pressure, coercion or imitidation.

If I say NO, I don't want that in my body, it means NO!

Don't look far, he's Canadian.

And that teenager shows off then after days when did not get what she wants, she felt exploited.

Lame lame lame.

By the way, how do you force someone to drink ? Pinch the nose, and force alcohol in the throat ? That is molestation. I doubt by 1000% that happened in the middle of the nightclub Lol.

He may or may not be guilty but given the fact that Canada has poor relations with the commies in Beijing and the lack of credibility of the Chinese kangaroo court system he's already been convicted and merely awaiting sentencing and whether he is guilty or not just doesn't matter.

He is 30 years old. In case you missed that.

The pose he strikes and the staging are a reflection of clichés and artifice. Posing as art. Pop sensations. And evident narcissism.

The use of such to lure underage women. And Commit rape. Offers no justification, absolutely none. Let alone the heinous nature of the use of power to violate another human beginning. To purposefully defile another as a means of sexual gratification. Such is a pattern and if exhibited, he needs to spend his days imprisoned - as claimed he would put himself in jail.

That a 30 year old is preying mostly on teenagers, does not speak well to his tendency in relationships. Even if they were consensual, which questions even the notion.

The teenager said that was the beginning of what she had thought was their relationship. 

This is only a comment on the above. No means no.

It’s possible some teenagers, particularly those from Asia, know not the difference between dating and going steady or going out. While the former is not exclusive, the latter reaches the stage of commitment. A North American dating to get to know people can be considered charai and seen as a playboy or a charao.

No way this is normal. She is not an adult and there is nothing to make it a true love romance here.

Just like R Kelly and Marilyn Manson. Rape is rape and it's a crime not of passion but of power and fear. And he is damn well old enough to know better.

Having a foreign nationality is not a protective talisman, and no matter how big the name is, there is no immunity.”

Even under Communism, as corrupt and bad as it is - there are things that are never acceptable. Rape and pedo are incompatible with Communist doctrine. Look at Gary Glitter when he fled to Vietnam.

You do the crime, you do the time no matter where you do it. And note the heated explosive language and tone of denial he used. It resembles the vehement denials of a criminal who recently occupied the WH and it's a vivid sign of guilt.

Innocent or guilty, he is screwed.

The teenager said seven other women contacted her to say Wu seduced them with promises of jobs and other opportunities. 

Sounds like a money-grab by these girls. Didn't get what they wanted so out come the complaints and accusations of rape.

Why do the parents (or even the bar door bouncers) allow teenage girls into clubs with 30 year old guys?

Wu, 30, earlier was accused by a teenager of having sex with her while she was drunk.

Huh? Should say he went up in her without permission.Drunk and having sex is pretty common.

The teenager said that was the beginning of what she had thought was their relationship.

Almost seems like because it wasn't,she decided to go in a different direction.

She said some were under 18 but gave no indication whether they were younger than China's age of consent of 14.

A very leading statement.

“If there were this kind of thing, please everyone relax, I would put myself in jail!”

I like the man's confidence in that statement.

Whether he s 16 or 60, age of Wu has nothing to do with the situation.

She knew exactly what she was doing.

The article does not mention, and surely would have done, if she was not of age of consent.

Having sex with girls if they have come willingly is natural. Since when you decide or not it is rape after having taken advantage of a situation ?

All is said through social network comments. I find it surreal anyone sees rape in that by not getting what you wanted. If he had replied to her messages, no rape. What a world of gold diggers !

All male heterosexual stars go with young girls if possible, all to get opportunities that life gives.

If he was in Japan, then the heaviest sentence he would have faced would have been a 2-3 year suspended sentence, with the most likely outcome being no prosecution. There would also be zero consequences to his career, as most people do not see rape as a crime.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

Are we really blaming a potential 14 year old girl here..? HE knew what he was doing if and when he tried sleeping with her as alleged. She undoubtedly wanted to get close to someone she idolized as you do at that age and he fully took advantage of the situation. And even if there wasn’t any sex involved it’s still highly inappropriate for a 30 year old man (or woman for that matter before someone pipes up) to be getting involved with young people in that sort of way.

Yawn.... Innocent until proven guilty.
