Kenneth Tsang: The slap was a gimmick!

13 Sep – Veteran actor Kenneth Tsang finally confirmed Patrick Tse's statement that their 2015 slapping incident was nothing more than just a gimmick for their reality show.

As reported on Mingpao, the actor, who spoke to the media at the press conference of an upcoming performance recently, shared that there was no bad blood between him and Patrick at all, and that the latter has told him beforehand that he was going to be slapped.

However, Kenneth stated that he didn't know the exact time when the slap will happen - which is the reason why he looked surprise when it did.

When asked if he is still friends with Patrick, Kenneth said that they would often meet up for tea.

The said incident happened in 2015, when Patrick, who appeared alongside his co-stars including Joe Jr. and Bowie Wu at the press conference of their variety show, "Four Amigos Bon Voyage", suddenly stood up and slapped Kenneth while shouting expletives to him.

Although some expressed doubt whether the whole incident was real, both stars were hesitant about talking about it again in later interviews, that is until July this year, when Patrick admitted that the whole thing was a gimmick.
