A veteran entertainer yesterday slapped Minister of Culture Cheng Li-chiun (鄭麗君) in
the face, saying she was upset with the minister’s attempts to “discredit” Chiang Kai-shek (蔣介石) and his son, former president Chiang Ching-kuo (蔣經國).
The incident occurred at a lunar year-end banquet in Taipei attended by veteran entertainers to mark the end of the Year of the Dog, the Chinese-language Mirror Media magazine reported.
The minister was going from table to table toasting the attendees when Lisa Cheng (鄭心儀), 67, slapped her in the face and then returned to her seat, footage taken at the event showed.
Cheng Li-chiun gasped and put her hand on her cheek, looking surprised and confused. [FULL STORY]
