We always hear about something weird that has happened recently, but this must certainly top it.
Something that a lot of actors and actresses tend to whilst on television is to look through the camera and at us. And that’s normal right? I mean, it’d be a bit annoying at times if we, as the audience were totally ignored. Well, one man didn’t seem to like someone staring through the camera, which was apparently directed towards him.
So much so, that he’s actually suing her because it apparently freaked him out. I mean, yeah, her eyes are quite big, but still… you don’t sue someone because they’re looking at you through the TV. I mean, she’s not even really looking at him.
In any case, the lawsuit has been filed, and it looks as though, despite it being ridiculous, this man is going to go through with it. It’s been filed in the People’s Court of Shanghai Pudong New District and the claim is for something which could actually seem quite serious: this man in question has apparently had his spirit damaged trough this act of staring into his eyes.
I was surprised when I learnt that he’s actually become quite unpopular because of this and actually many on social media have taken to criticise him for his outlandish claim saying that there is nothing wrong with the actress having big eyes. In any case, I would’ve thought that it’s quite rude that he’s suing for this, as it’s near as well saying that she’s ugly or he doesn’t like what she looks like.
There will also be some cultural differences and differences in opinion over what’s right and wrong in the Western and Asian cultures, but surely this is just one step too far?
