Lily Gao, who plays Ada Wong in Resident Evil 4, faced online harassment from Resident Evil fans due to her "bad acting performance," which resulted in her Instagram account being temporarily suspended.
What we hear and read about the Resident Evil 4 remake these days is mostly praise for Capcom for doing an excellent job with the remake of this gaming classic. As we recently reported, the game went on to become the best-selling Resident Evil title .
However, some bad news broke today, and it concerns a group of fans who subjected the actress Lily Gao, who lent her voice to Ada Wong, to online harassment for, as they claim, bad acting and ruining Ada Wong's character. Capcom decided to cast Lily Gao in the role of Ada Wong instead of Jolene Andersen, who played Ada in the Resident Evil 2 remake.
As arguments for Lily Gao's bad acting, fans stated that Ada doesn't sound "seductive" now and that her character is completely ruined because of that.
Although there were those who defended the actress, the actress ultimately decided to turn off the comments and delete her Instagram posts. Her Instagram profile currently only has one visible post. Lily Gao will reprise her role in Resident Evil 4's upcoming DLC, "Separate Ways." It remains to be seen how these unfortunate events will affect the actress's collaboration with Capcom, as well as how Capcom will respond to this event.
This isn't the first time that Resident Evil's so-called fans have publicly harassed the cast. Avan Jogia, who played Leon Kennedy in the film Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, has previously been harassed and insulted for his poor acting performance.
