    19th November 2022 – (Hong Kong) Today is a big day for TVB’s 55th anniversary celebration, and TVB also held a 55th anniversary dinner a few days ago. In addition to inviting people from different sectors and a number of charitable organisations, about 50 TVB artistes also attended.

    Meanwhile, a group of singers from STARS Academy (a singing competition organised by TVB in 2021) also attended the dinner and performed. Among them, 17-year-old singer Gigi Yim Ming Hay became the focus because TVB General Manager Eric Tsang who is also an actor asked her to do a striptease during an interview. He actually said jokingly, “Gigi can perform a striptease…ah no, she can sing” . As soon as this remark came out, many netizens condemned Tsang, saying that he should not make fun of the underage Gigi, and that he should be cautious in his words as a high-level executive in TVB.
