According to 8world News, the live streamers accused the travel agency of “not delivering what it promised” on their live streams.

Subsequently, in Aug 2023, Chan Brothers Travel announced that it would take legal action against these “public figures”.

Although the company did not name the individuals at the time, many social media users speculated that it was Wang Lei and his entourage, The Straits Times (ST) reported.

Live streamer Jayner Teh, who has a reputation for being Wang Lei’s “apprentice”, was among the group.

In her statement, she said that the travel agency invited her and the other live streamers to meet when they returned to Singapore from the Europe trip to address their concerns.

This was in addition to the company’s immediate rectification attempts after it received the initial feedback from the group.

According to Teh, the group initially asked for a partial refund, and expressed their intention to “air [their] discontent on Facebook livestream should [their] request not be met”.

To that, the company maintained that it needed more time to investigate before offering any resolution.

“Dissatisfied with this, I hosted and/or appeared in various Facebook livestreams on 15 July 2023 and 16 July 2023. In these livestreams, I participated in making numerous statements against the services rendered by Chan Brothers and Chan Brothers’ operations,” Teh said.

“I now acknowledge that these statements have caused Chan Brothers to suffer reputational harm. I should have verified the information given to me before making these statements.”

She added that she has since deleted the livestreams, and promised not to recirculate them or say anything about the tour that is “untrue” or “negative” about Chan Brothers.

“I am sorry for any harm and damage that the comments have caused to Chan Brothers, its management, and its staff.”

Lawsuit against remaining live streamers ongoing
