23 Aug – Apparently everyone wants to be Edison Chen nowadays, what with the latest perpetrator being Taiwanese heir Justin Lee, in a sex scandal that allegedly involved him drugging and possibly raping several women with 60 women taped during the sessions.
According to Jayne Stars, photos from the socialite's pornographic collection were uploaded by an anonymous netizen recently, identified as 'M', including a 1-minute and 13-second video clip on Taiwan's largest community forum, PTT Bulletin Board System. Although 'M' locked the post stating that users who want to see more photos and videos from Justin Lee's collection had to figure out the passcode themselves, that did not stop the post from generating millions of comments.
The post had been taken down by the authorities since then and search warrants were issued to the homes of two PTT users because they requested 'M' to show them Justin Lee's pornographic files. Tabloid magazines that previously published photos from Justin Lee's collection were also interrogated by the police.
To make things worse, netizens have been photoshopping various photos of celebrities in an attempt to tie them to the scandal and generate second-guesses. Among the celebrities who were victimized by netizens were the famous Taiwanese model and actress, Kelly Lin and actress Alice Tzeng.
Further, Justin Lee's ex-girlfriend, Cora, had been accused to be 'M', following reports that she was seen turning in a CD device to the police authorities.
"How can it be me?! I do not have any of them. The prosecutor will prove me innocent!"
Cora then went on to deny that the CD was her sex tape with Justin Lee through her Facebook page, stating, "That CD is a computer device driver. The police are checking if there are more photos in it."
