CHINESE Internet celebrity Grace Chow, whose popularity skyrocketed following her breakup from
pop star Show Lo, inadvertently revealed scars from her plastic surgery during a makeup tutorial, China Press reported.
She posted a video of her makeup routine on Weibo on Tuesday but fans were quick to point out the scars from her double-eyelid surgery that were visible in the footage where she was showing ways to apply eye shadow.
Chow, who intended the video to be a guide for her fans, was disappointed, that “many people ended up focusing on the scars on my eyelids”.
In a show of support, Chow’s manager posted a photo of her scars from a similar surgery.
Chow, 31, replied by saying, “I have the best mummy, daddy and Dou Dou (her cat) in the world, as well as the best manager!”
Fans have also written in support of Chow. Someone remarked: “Don’t worry about the opinion of others as long as you have us.”
Chow was very much in the public eye after calling out Lo in a post on April 23, accusing him of cheating on her throughout their nine-year relationship. The scandal was said to have caused Lo to lose millions in endorsement deals.
