Several days ago, Chinese BBS forums were busy with the discovery and accusation that former Happy Girls contestant Zeng Yike may have plagiarized the music of one of her “original” songs titled “Leo” from a Taiwanese musician. Go listen and compare here.

Now, Zeng Yike has made a statement, and her response to this allegation of plagiarism has left many people completely dumbfounded:

From Zeng Yike’s blog:

我只能说我发现了这世界上另一首《狮子座》
而它的作者
也许是
这世界上另一个我。

I can only say that I have discovered in the world another ‘Leo’,
and that its author
may
be another me.

Please, please do not come out again and pollute the environment. Our society needs harmony.

网易辽宁沈阳网友:

I have seen thick skin, but I have never seen skin as thick as your’s, Brother Zeng.

网易广东东莞网友:

I am not a person who likes to criticize others, but if I do not criticize you, I would not be a person. This low…

网易山西太原网友:

The other Zeng Yike in the world would be [Sylvester] Stallone.

网易海南网友:

Let me borrow this thread to say something. NetEase editor, can you not post “Zeng Yike” abbreviated “Brother Zeng” images on the homepage?? The reason is because every time I see these photos I will feel upset/uncomfortable, my head dizzy, eyes blurry, nauseous, want to vomit, black out. You can put them in some corner of the entertainment section, and those who like them can go find them themselves. It is not necessary to put them on the main page and rape the eyes of netizen masses!!  Words from the bottom of my heart, I hope you will heed them! Wah…I must go vomit now…

网易河北唐山网友:

A bunch of SB with nothing better to do spend their days attacking Zeng Yike. Zeng Yike is but a genius, not to be reproached by you SBs.

网易四川德阳网友:

I especially want to hear Zeng Yike use a normal person’s voice/pitch to properly sing a song. As long as you are able to sing one line without singing off-key, I will support you!

网易四川成都网友:

Actually I feel it was Hunan Television that destroyed a girl who loved to sing!
If everyone does not like [her singing] then just keep it to yourselves! What did she do wrong that deserves all of China’s netizens abusing her?
Be considerate!
I too do not like her!
