With the COVID-19 situation gradually improving in China, many stars there have started going back to work. Among them is Angelababy, who was recently photographed on the way to a recording of a variety show.
While many fans were delighted to finally see the 31-year-old out and about in public, there were those who noticed that she wasn't a mask even though she's outdoors.
Netizens then chastised her for her lack of social responsibility and awareness and commented that she shouldn’t let her guard down even though the spread of the pandemic in China appears to have calmed down.
However, more observant netizens pointed out that Angelababy did, in fact, have a mask with her. It was in her hand.
A person who claimed to have witnessed the incident explained that Angelababy was wearing a mask, but she had taken it off temporarily for security checks, which included a facial recognition scan.
The actress has not responded to the online furor this pic has caused, but she has since been seen wearing a mask whenever she's in public.
