Taiwanese actress and singer Barbie Hsu, 39, is about seven months pregnant with her second child, a boy. But her husband, Chinese businessman Wang Xiaofei, has drawn the ire of netizens after he posted a Weibo message that seemed to make fun of his wife’s weight gain.

Xiaofei uploaded a photo of Barbie when she was slimmer and wrote, “Will this be a photo from after she gives birth to the little brother?”


Netizens attacked him for his comment and spoke up for Barbie. Some comments included “Then please don’t make her have one child after another for you — she’ll look far better than she does in this photo” and “Why don’t you try having a child, her weight gain is all your fault.”

The couple welcomed their daughter, Hsi-Yueh, in 2014, and Barbie hinted in February that she was expecting a boy.
