By moodycaddyFebruary 24, in global entertainment. This rage about Edison Chen and the sex photo scanad has been going on forever and they finally have a conclusion: Edison is leaving the Hong Kong Entertainment industry. Personally, I think this whole blame on Edison is ridiculous.
In a video statement Chen, 27, called the postings of the photographs "intentionally hurtful and malicious. Police believe the images were copied from Chen's computer when it was serviced last year. If you are still in possession of these images, I urge you to please destroy them immediately," a subdued-looking Chen added in the video.
Hong Kong entertainer Edison Chen said on Thursday he was quitting show business indefinitely after admitting here that he had taken the photos embarrassing several well-known starlets that had been leaked to the Internet. The year-old Canadian-born Chinese said he had come back to Hong Kong to "account for himself and to apologize to those involved in or effected by the scandal". I am sorry," the Vancouver native said at a press conference attended by hundreds of media. Chen said he would leave the Hong Kong entertainment industry indefinitely after fulfilling all existing contracts.
The curtain fell on the startling career of the Hong Kong hip-hop bad boy Edison Chen yesterday, after he retired from showbiz in the wake of a nude celebrity photo scandal. The explicit photos have rocked the territory and will make Cantopop stars and film starlets think twice about meeting a loved one's wishes to get down and dirty in the boudoir for an amateur photo shoot. While the mainland has been gripped by tales of blizzards and trapped migrant workers, Hong Kong has been more concerned with what was on Chen's hard drive.

Many local newspapers headlined the story consecutively during the first fortnight of Februaryrelegating coverage of the Chinese winter storms to secondary prominence during Chinese New Year. In a crackdown which itself became a controversial item, the Hong Kong police enlisted the assistance of Interpol to stem the spread of the photographs. The police crackdown raised questions over violations of the privacy and free speech rights of Internet users.
At first I never even heard of this and apparently this started towards the end of January. In a nutshell, there is an actor named Edison Chen who is in some sort of sex scandal as apparently he has taken hundreds of explicit pictures and videos of him with a lot of different women who happen to be major celebrities in Hong Kong. Somehow the photos and videos were stolen and have been redistributed on the Internet which has created a huge frenzy due to the names of the people who are attached to this ordeal. However, the person is born here in Vancouver and I was asked if I knew anything about it.
