A Dutch Influencer Says That A Chinese TV Show Used A Photo Of Her And Her Boyfriend, But Replaced Her Face With The Shows Star

An influencer alleged in a viral TikTok that a Chinese TV show used her photo but edited her out.

  • Rianne Meijer wrote in a comment on the post that the show's crew has since apologized to her.

  • The show is called "Summer Again" and premiered in July on the streaming platform iQiyi.

  • A Dutch influencer says that a Chinese TV show used a photo of her and her boyfriend without permission - and edited her face out of the picture to replace her with the series's star.

    Rianne Meijer has over 94,000 followers on TikTok and 1.5 million on Instagram, where she often shares photos with her boyfriend, Roy Atiya, a doctor with over 45,000 followers on the platform.

    In a 22-second TikTok uploaded on October 13, Meijer compared the original picture with a screenshot from the show, "Summer Again." The original photo was posted on Meijer's Instagram in February 2019 and shows Meijer and Atiya posing in front of a bright skyline and glittering expanse of water. The post's location says it was taken at the Park Hotel Vitznau in Vitznau, Switzerland.

    The photo in "Summer Again" is almost identical, featuring another woman posing next to Atiya with her arm curled around his neck, in the exact position as Meijer in the original photo. The TikTok video has over 3.7 million views and 665,000 likes.

    "Summer Again" revolves around a ballet dancer adapting to small-town life after living in a big city, according to the Chinese streaming platform iQiyi, which aired the show in July. The woman in the edited photo is the show's protagonist, played by the actor Li Borong, according to the Chinese social-media news site What's on Weibo.

    Meijer wrote on Thursday in a comment on her viral TikTok that "the crew of the show" later sent her an apology.

    "They are so sweet and this gave us a good laugh," she wrote.

    It was not clear whether it was iQiyi employees or "Summer Again" production officials who had reportedly apologized. The show was produced by Xi'an Qujiang Film and TV and Aim Media Pictures, according to a Wiki page about the series.

    "The internet is a funny place," Meijer wrote in the video caption.

    Meijer wrote in a comment on the TikTok video that she found out about the photo because a "girl who was watching the show and recognized the picture" sent her a DM on Instagram alerting her.

    Meijer, Atiya, and iQiyi did not respond to requests for comment.
