Eileen Gu Offers Support to Zhu Yi Amid Reports of Online Attacks: ‘She’s Amazing’

Figure skater Zhu Yi, who gave up her U.S. citizenship in order to join Team China, has reportedly been facing intense criticism on social media following her performance at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. 

According to CNN, the online backlash started after the 19-year-old athlete fell during the short program, with social media users reportedly questioning why she was chosen to represent China and criticizing everything from her background to the way she speaks Mandarin. The public scrutiny is said to have continued after Zhu Yi fell twice during her free-skate performance on Monday, February 7. The skater was seen holding back tears on the ice, before sobbing openly following the performance.
