Shu Fanny, an actress from Taiwan and a Golden Horse Award winner, became the latest high-profile victim of cyber-bulling in an online squabble that simmered for weeks. Shu deleted all of her 8,000 posts and stopped following all accounts Monday on Sina Weibo, China's most popular Twitter-like microblogging service, after voicing her support for Donnie Yen. Her simple post garnered thousands of abusive comments, and users even forwarded a poster from a pornographic film Shu shot when she was 17. Many believed the backlash against Shu was linked to a fierce battle raging online between the fans of Donnie Yen and Chiu Man-Cheuk, two Chinese actors. Shu's departure from the microblog community shocked her 10 million followers and prompted tens of thousands of Internet users to reflect on cyber-bullying.
