Such "misconduct" mainly refers to illegal behavior such as drug use, rape and tax evasion, but also includes a personal lifestyle that has been deemed a bad social influence.

这种“不当行为”主要是指吸毒、强奸、逃税等违法行为,但也包括被认为对社会造成不良影响的个人生活方式。

Celebrities whose articles have been hit with the tag include Chinese-Canadian singer Kris Wu, who was arrested by Beijing police in early August on rape charges, and famous Chinese actress Zheng Shuang, whose career in China was almost completely destroyed after she was fined 299 million yuan ($46 million) for tax fraud in August. Prior to the tax fraud case, Zheng had landed in hot water for having surrogate children in the US with Zhang Heng, who accused her of abandoning them.

被贴上标签的名人包括8月初因强奸罪被北京警方逮捕的华裔加拿大歌手吴亦凡,以及中国著名女演员郑爽,她因税务欺诈被罚款2.99亿元(4600万美元)后,在中国的事业几乎毁于一旦。在税务欺诈案之前,郑爽曾因与张衡在美国代孕孩子而陷入热潮,张恒指责她遗弃孩子。

Besides these two celebrities, whose scandals are seen as the most notorious of 2021, once shining star Fan Bingbing was also hit with the tag. In 2018, the once globally popular Chinese actress was involved in a tax scandal that saw her pay 833 million yuan in fines.
