Zheng Shuang throws a fit over unfair treatment at This is Fighting Robots

Zheng Shuang outburst This is Fighting Robots
This is Fighting Robots 这就是铁甲 is a robot combat competition on Youku. It seems like such a niche category, and I like to think of it as a version of Real Steel but with smaller robots. Oddly enough, the last time I heard about the show was when they were apologizing to Zheng Shuang for an infraction that happened on the show. 

Zheng Shuang outburst This is Fighting Robots
This is Fighting Robots is gaining attention again this week due to a video where Zheng Shuang causes a scene and then walks out mid-filming. 

In a nutshell, she was outraged over the referee's delay in the countdown. When the referee finally starts counting to 10, his ten seconds count seemed painfully slow. The actress later said that injustice is something everyone can face, you endure it and move on but when it's for the sake of her team, she simply could not let it slide.

Honestly, it's rare to see a public personally especially one with an idol image like her so uncontrollably angry on TV. Some judge her for overreacting, others take her side. I really don't follow the show to know enough but it seems kind of shady that they're trending at the expense of Zheng Shuang. And just from the video, her cries seemed to be falling on deaf ears, it's no wonder she lost her cool. 

Zheng Shuang outburst This is Fighting Robots
The are 13 robots left in the competition and Zheng Shuang seems to have the strongest lineup. Hopefully the other three managers Zhang Yishan, Wu Chun and Sa Bei Ning don't gang up on her cause it's been mentioned on more than one occasion that they just might.

  1. I don't agree her cries were on deaf ears, people heard it but her counting was honestly just way too fast. Seconds do go by fast, but not FAST-FAST-FAST, it should still like this = 1...2...3...4...5...
    However, the way she counting was actually like this = 12345
    So the referee was being fair, doing his job fairly. If he were really to do what she "plea"...does he biasly likes her or something to ignore his job? By the way, even if she does get 3 or 5 more seconds, not as if she will win. Overall, just a game. I don't think what she did was good for her image as an idol. I was hoping she was just trying to act funny but after a little while it gets more and more intense.

    Maybe at least she was "herself" after all? The other scenario I don't like is when an actress gets so scared too that she can't act like herself, and comes off super awkward on stage all the time because of having to be extra-extra careful that she is totally nice, pure and polite.

  4. Well if you watched the show, when it was her turn, the referee count just like herm but when it was other team, he counted 10 seconds as if it was 20 seconds?? I would be just as mad as her to be honest. This show is a robot fight competition, every seconds matter since the longer the fight the more risks that the robot be broken and the cost for fixing them is very expensive. It is not "just a game".

    Not mention that she was treated unfair like this since the beginning of the show. Rules were made up against her (like only making her team to compete against her own team's robot and other team's robots also), but she still respected and followed the rules until this happened. This is just a moment when everything just boiled up.

    Before saying anything such as "oh she is just making a fuss" or "she must keep calm" or something, put yourself in her situation first.
