Instead of wishing her well, some netizens took to social media to vent their frustrations on Taiwanese supermodel actress Lin Chi-Ling's marriage with Japanese boy band member Akira.

Lin posted a message on June 18 on Weibo that read "Hope everyone is well" following the earthquake in Sichuan, only to be met with harsh comments from other social media users.

"Just go back to Japan. Thanks for your concern but it is time for you to go back," one netizen wrote.

"A Chinese person changing to a Japanese name is an insult to your ancestors," another wrote.

Lin, 44, and Akira, 37, announced their marriage on social media on June 6. The couple met during the stage play Red Cliff~Love and dated for a year before deciding to tie the knot.
