Tennis Star Makes Accusations Then Suspiciously Disappears

Tennis Star Makes Accusations Then Suspiciously Disappears

( – One of China’s best tennis players recently came forward with a groundbreaking allegation. Since her public accusation against one of the highest-ranking Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials, the tennis star has disappeared, and no one knows where she is or if she’s safe.

Peng Shuai, on November 2, used her Weibo account, China’s version of Twitter, to accuse Zhang Gaoli, a senior CCP official, of sexually assaulting her. The CCP quickly acted and removed the post within 20 minutes of the tennis star posting it.

Censors in China virtually made Shuai disappear, deleting any images of her post, removing any discussion of the matter, and even making her name unsearchable. Other well-known tennis players, such as Naomi Osaka, who’s ranked #1, are demanding an investigation into Shuai’s whereabouts. In addition, the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) requested that Beijing launch an inquiry into Shuai’s allegations.

After Shuai’s story gained international attention, Chinese state-funded CGTN media posted a screenshot of an email claiming the tennis star sent to Steve Simon, WTA’s chief executive.  The email reportedly said she was safe, not missing, and that her allegations against Gaoli were untrue. However, instead of quelling questions regarding Shuai and her whereabouts, the post only raises further inquiries from the international community.

The only thing the alleged email has done is confirm just how ruthless and brutal China is. They’ll hunt down and censor anything that doesn’t paint the CCP in a good light. The United Nations recently called upon Beijing to provide proof that Shuai is alive and well. Images later surfaced of Shuai at a children’s tournament in Beijing but did little to quell the unease.  Currently, President Biden is contemplating whether or not to stage a diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics, which China is set to host. Perhaps Shuai’s disappearance will convince the president to follow through.
