Video Face Filter Bug Exposes Middle-Aged Woman Posing as a Young Vlogger

A popular young female Chinese vlogger who gained a beloved reputation for her “sweet and healing” voice for over 100,000 followers, has been exposed as a middle-aged woman.

During a July 25th livestream, Chinese vlogger “Your Highness Qiao Biluo” was on-air with another influencer, Qingzy, on the social network Douyu.

At the time of the broadcast, fans urged the supposedly young social celebrity to drop the filter. She refused at first to comply with the request. But later agreed to the unmasking if watchers donated money. “I can’t show my face until I receive gifts worth 100,000 yuan ($11,950).”

Moments later, the cash poured in, with the largest amount reportedly being approximately 40,000 yuan (about $5,800), according to the BBC.

It was during this time the face filter failed, exposing her true face. Many fans immediately thereafter unfollowed her and some withdrew their donations.
