Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai, who has taken central stage in China’s biggest-ever #MeToo scandal, has publicly ‘denied’ claims that she was ever sexually assaulted by a senior CCP official which were posted last month on her official social media account. The posts, which were erased by moderators in November, had accused Zhang Gaoli, a former vice-premier of the Communist party, of sexual misconduct. 

  • The about-face: “I have never said or written that anyone has sexually assaulted me — I have to stress this point,” Peng told a Singaporean newspaper this week, in her first official remarks since the story broke. Peng’s comments are unlikely to rein in the international controversy surrounding the November post, which prompted the WTA to suspend its tournaments in China.
