China's Most Hated Reality Star Hiding Out in NYC
After making demands about men on a Chinese reality show, Feng Luoyu angered so many women there that she couldn't even walk the streets without getting harassed.

But in Brooklyn, the 26-year-old now goes unnoticed as a manicurist, the New York Post reports.
She rose to fame in Shanghai in 2009 when she began handing out fliers that demanded her potential suitor, "must be a post-graduate of economics from Tsinghua or Beijing University, with a height of 5 feet 9 to 6 feet. He must have never been a father, and any ex-girlfriends must not have had abortions. He has to be a native of eastern coastal China. He should not be an employee of state companies, but it’s OK if he works for PetroChina, Sinopec or top banks."
She also took out billboards, and then starred on a reality show with two actors who posed as her boyfriend. She has 1.4 million followers on Weibo, the Chinese version of Twitter.
After saying on TV that she was so smart, "no one can compare to me in 300 years before and after," she began to get catcalled on the streets of Shanghai with "300 years!", "Feng Jie!" or "Big Sister Feng." (She also came under fire for saying things like "Einstein is for sure not smarter than me. He invented light, right?")
Feng wanted to live a quieter life in New York.
"I was hated in China and don’t wanted to be hated by people here," she said.
But she hasn't given up her standards in men, telling the Post that she's looking for a "real American" with an Ivy League degree.
"Men ask me out all the time. But none of them are suitable," she said.
