Friends and Celebrities Demand Justice for Godfrey Gao’s Death

It's very poignant seeing the title of Godfrey Gao’s old drama Remembering Lichuan 遇见王沥川, now that he’s passed. In the days following his passing, the drama’s unofficial Weibo page started to actively post updates and tributes to the actor. Now that everyone’s had the chance to let the sad news sink in, friends and fans have started to also turn their attention to seeking the justice he deserves now that he’s no longer able to do so. 

Sure, Zhejiang TV has already issued a statement chronicling the events that happened on that fateful evening – just a mere eight days of keeping mum about the entire thing.  But fans still maintain that something smells fishy and are now clamouring for the network to release the detailed video of the night in a bid for transparency.

"We insist only on one thing, not because it will get results this way, but because we firmly believe that doing so is right. We have a responsibility to let honesty be rewarded and to keep good folks from suffering. If good people are not rewarded, then we cannot really blame them. If good and honest folks can no longer speak, our world will go dark” posts good friend Gabriel Lan on his IG stories. Other accounts like Remembering Lichuan's unofficial page have also posted similar sentiments on social media in a move to seek the truth under the hashtag "speaking up for Godfrey together".

Andrew Lien too, who also appeared in Remembering Lichuan together with Godfrey posts a series of emojis to echo Netizen’s sentiments of boycotting Zhejiang TV - "1📢10, 10📢100, 100📢1000, 1000📢10000 📢🌆, 🌆📢🇨🇳, ❌👀📺. I’ve failed math exams since I was little, even the subject I couldn’t understand. Whenever I see numbers I get a headache. Are there any good hearted people who can explain this to me?” I think he’s trying to be ironic here but Netizens commenting on the post are pretty much saying that everyone spread the word across the country to boycott the “killer” network.

Godfrey has been gone for almost two weeks now, but wrapping our heads around the fact that he’s gone hasn’t gotten any easier. I’m sure his friends and fans also feel the same way as tributes continue to pour in for the actor. More than that, since Godfrey is no longer able to demand justice for himself, I hope that the cry for justice on his behalf will finally bear fruit so he can finally rest in peace. #RememberingGodfrey indeed.

  2. Nothing will bring him back. I doubt there would be any findings. TV issued their statement and cancelled the show. As much as we like to blame someone, we never know what actually went on and Godfreys health situation. Especially, if it was the heart. So many young High Schook athletes collapsed and died during practice due to a non noticeable heart condition that wasn't noticed during their physical. May God bring peace to his family and friends

  3. Even that Godfrey Gao passed away - sometimes doctors can still find out what happened to his heart. If there was a genetic heart condition issue within his family - they can do tests on his siblings. My friend lost two older brothers who died in their sleep (35+ years old). After the 2nd person died - they ran tests on all the siblings & their children. They found out that some of the family members have a heart condition. Some are wearing the pacemaker now and some are being monitored now.

    Pretty sure that's a lie but sure, whatever helps you sleep at night.

    I hope everyone, especially the family, will get justice.

    2. I don't like troubles, but in this case I'm praying that Godfrey Gao's family will SUE them. They have to do that for Godfrey because it was very wrong.

  5. I find it disguising this company thinks a statement is enough to close the case and move on. But I doubt the protest are loud enough for more actions to be taken.

    1. The point is for such a show/program they should have prepared for event like this. If i’m not wrong – they claimed they had 3 medical personnel staff and two ambulances available @ the time. If they handled the situation in a timely matter, if they they did their best – Godfrey Gao would probably still alive today. It disappointed me that the other celebrities who were there are not speaking out about what happened that night. Are they worrying that they will get in trouble with the production companies? Are they worry about their careers if they speak up?
