Show Luo became something of a persona non grata after his ex-girlfriend Chinese influencer Grace Chow exposed his cheating ways to the world. With TV shows dropping him from their line-up to advertisers distancing themselves from him, it's been estimated that Show has lost tens of millions of dollars in income because of the scandal.
But it seems not everyone is shunning the 40-year-old star. Apparently, his streetwear brand GOTNOFEARS has seen a 20% increase in online sales after his very public breakup.
The label, which launched a very apt collection called ‘Can We Restart 2020?’ slightly over a month ago, has actually been doing good business. Show's manager admitted that this was “an unexpected turn of events”, and reasoned that the increase could be because more consumers have been turning to online shopping during the COVID-19 pandemic. It certainly doesn’t hurt that Show Luo doesn’t model for his own brand, and netizens who are online window shopping might not even know that he owns it.
One person who definitely knows who owns GOTNOFEARS is Taiwanese singer Richie Jen. The singer was slammed by netizens for wearing a GOTNOFEARS tee to a recent event. Richie has since told the Taiwanese media that Show personally gifted him with the T-shirt, adding: “His brand and what happened two him are two separate issues.”
What he said only angered netizens further. “Why are you helping a scumbag by driving sales for his brand? How can you say that the cheating and his brand are two different matters? They’re both directly related to him, aren’t they? You’re just treating us as idiots at this point,” seethed one irate netizen. Some of Richie’s fans also declared that they would no longer support him if he had “no respect for women”.
More good news for the singer was reported this week. The singer is said to be returning to host Entertainment 100% in the near future, which was a piece of news that didn't sit well with netizens, many of whom condemned the production team for “allowing someone with no morals back onto the show”.
