A popular Chinese vlogger who is known as “Your Highness Qiao Biluo,” instead of a youthful girl, turns out to be a 58-year-old woman after the face filtering software that she used suffered a glitch during a live stream.
The vlogger looked way younger by using a beauty filter on Douyu, a Chinese live streaming website. The incident happened when during Qiao Biluo’s joint live stream with another vlogger, the face filter stopped working, thus revealing her true appearance. The whole event raises questions on the way we present ourselves on the internet.
Qiao Biluo is just one of over 425 million livestreamers online. Many of them use face filters when filming themselves singing karaoke or eating snacks.
Apparently, everything was going normal for Qiao Biluo until her fans asked her to reveal her real face because she had always been using filters whenever she came on a live stream. She refused and claimed that since she was a good-looking host. She wouldn’t show her face until she received gifts worth Rs 1,001,450.
Following her request, many of her followers started sending her money with one as much as Rs 4,00,000. And that was when the filter malfunction happened. It was not until several of her followers, mostly men left the live stream and stopped following her did she realize her face filter was off.
Qiao Biluo had reportedly over 100,000 and was popular for her healing and sweet voice. Yahoo Finance reported that the donations that she sometimes received could reach Rs 1,002,399.
A debate was sparked online following the incident about whether Quiao Biluo had scammed her viewers to send her money or whether she wasn’t the one to blame and didn’t deserve to be criticized.
Meanwhile, Qiao Biluo has suspended her account right after the incident.
