Yahoo News Confuses Asian Celebrities, Thinks Vanness Wu is Dead Chinese Daredevil

Yahoo Entertainment released an article on the untimely death of Wu Yongning, a social media star known for his daring stunts on Chinese skyscrapers; unfortunately, they used a photo Wu Vanness, a Taiwanese drama star married to Singaporean heiress, Arissa Cheo.
In an archived version of the article, Yahoo Entertainment, through syndicated website Hollywood Life, reported correctly on Wu Yongning’s demise. The young man, who was only 26, plunged to his death from a failed stunt on November 8, as confirmed by his girlfriend on December 8. In an unfortunate mix-up, however, the publication featured an image of Wu Vanness instead of Wu Yongning, the former very much being alive and well.
Netizens were quick to point out Yahoo’s error.
