3rd July 2022 – (Hong Kong) 36-year-old Samuel Lai Sung-wai aka ‘Tsuen Wan butcher AK’ (Wai Wai) has become popular recently. Many housewives have visited his stall in the Tsuen Wan market to take photos as the masked butcher resembles local singer Aaron Kwok, Taiwanese singer Show Low and some even said that he looks like Anson Kong from popular boyband ‘ MIRROR’.
Lai recently issued a statement to refuse defamatory remarks which have caused harm to him and his family. Some alleged that he had been involved in drug parties, participated in triad activities, dated multiple women and cheated on them. He also owed debts, etc. There are fans who started Facebook page to support him and there are also non-supporters who started a page to expose the history of Samuel Lai.
A few days ago, some netizens accused Lai of being suspected of having plastic surgery. An old picture of a man purported to be Lai without mask hugging a girl wearing a bikini on a boat was shared online. In fact, it was reported earlier that because Lai was constantly being attacked on social media, a publisher has halted the plan to publish an autobiographical photo and cookbook for him originally scheduled to be launched at the book fair this year.
