Barbie Hsu defends decision to donate face masks to Wuhan

30 Jan – Barbie Hsu recently defended herself over decision to donate more than 10,000 medical-grade face masks to Wuhan, following news that Taiwan will not be exporting the product for now.

As reported on Mingpao, the actress, who bought the said masks from Japan to be sent to the Hubei city, found herself being criticised by Taiwanese netizens, who stated that Barbie should be helping the locals first in preventing the Wuhan Coronavirus from spreading in the island.

To that, the "Meteor Garden" star responded, "I don't think there should be any issue. This is just something that a person should do. There are people who are starving, people who are in trouble. When they're facing difficulties, we should let go of our hatred and help each other rather than do nothing."

Barbie also added that she wanted to be a good example to her children and teach them to be charitable.

Sister Dee Hsu also defended the actress, saying, "We are all human beings who live on this earth. We're not human if we don't help each other. Hate is more terrible than a virus!"
