One of Taiwan’s most famous internet celebrities was shot twice outside his own gym. Holger Chen, who is also known as an outspoken critic of the Chinese Communist Party, was shot in the arm and calf on Aug. 28. He was taken to the hospital and was in stable condition.
The suspect turned himself in to police shortly after the shooting.
Chen, a businessman and YouTube star with more than 2 million followers on social media, helped organize a mass protest against Beijing’s infiltration of Taiwan’s media in 2019, prompting the Chinese regime to attempt to silence him by pressuring his sponsors, according to the Taiwanese star.
