Fahrenheit’s Aaron Yan Crashes Alleged Victim’s Press Conference, Apologizes

Aaron Yan

Taiwanese actor and Fahrenheit singer Aaron Yan crashed his ex-boyfriend and alleged sexual assault victim Qiu Yaole’s press conference held June 21st.

Trigger warning: sensitive topic; mentions of rape, sexual assault, illegal hidden filming, abuse of a minor

Qiu was merely minutes into his opening statement when Yan made an unannounced appearance at the press conference to apologize but deny that he secretly filmed Qiu without his consent.

“I want to solemnly say sorry to you here for making you suffer things that you should not have to bear in life,” Yan said.

Following his appearance, Yan, 37, was alleged to have raped and illegally filmed sexual activities when he was in a relationship with the then-minor Qiu.

In an Instagram post uploaded on Tuesday, June, 20,  Qiu accused Yan of sexually assaulting him when he was 16 and said their sexual acts were filmed by a third party. Qiu added that he was forced to halt his studies due to stress when their scandalous video leaked in 2018.

Qiu also maintained that he has evidence and records of conversations on Instagram to prove that Yan threatened to send the mafia to deal with him if he revealed details of the making of the tapes.

In the press conference held on June 21st, Yan denied to the press after his apology that he was the one who leaked the sex tapes back then.

“I absolutely did not secretly film him,” he said. “I did not do anything against anyone’s will,” Taiwanese media Central News Agency reported.

In an earlier Facebook post, Yan addressed the allegations and denied Qiu’s allegations that he leaked their tapes.

“After my investigation at the time, the biggest possibility was that it was leaked when I sent my phone to be repaired. For this reason, I also used my best ability at the time to ask a lawyer to assist in taking down the video,” he wrote.

In the press conference, however, Qiu addressed his post and denied Yan’s claims that he held an investigation after the video was leaked and emphasized that filming a private video involving a minor is illegal.

Ultimately, Qiu expressed that he does not accept Yan’s apology.

“I am not willing [to accept his apology]. I felt that his apology shouldn’t have come only after I revealed his actions,” Qiu said.

Yan has made no further statements to the press after his appearance at the press conference.
