Dilraba’s Fans Angered by “Kissing” Edit
The definitive “goddess” for many fans, Xinjiang-born actress Dilraba Dilmurat (迪麗熱巴) has what many think are perfect bodily proportions and mesmerizing looks. Since making her mark with Eternal Love <三生三世十里桃花>, her fame has been on the uprise. Recently, a video editor by the name of Hong Liang (transliterated 洪亮) edited television footage of a scene in You Are My Glory <你是我的榮耀> to make it seem as if Dilraba and himself were kissing – evoking the ire of her massive fan legion!

Editing one of the key kissing scenes in popular drama You Are My Glory where Dilraba kissed Yang Yang (楊洋), the artist edited himself into Yang Yang’s position such as it looks as if he was kissing Dilraba, and uploaded the video to social media, where it triggered heated discussions.
In a recent video however, Hong Liang appeared to have suffered facial bruises. He captioned, “A few fans of Dilraba, kids around 20 years, came to my studio based on a location I had tagged, that’s it,” While he did not clearly state what had transpired, he seemed to hint that the edited video angered the actress’s fans and resulted in the attack. He then commented that he would delete the video, and would stop updating momentarily due to the injuries, while not forgetting to cheer himself on, commenting “Take a break, and get better in future”.
Most netizens felt that both parties were at fault – Hong Liang possibly infringing copyrights in editing the original video, while the editing was also “over the top”, while fans who were ruffled should have made a police report. It is unclear if both parties have settled the matter.
