Here is the story about SNOWPLUS CEO who’s invited out of the RELX new product launch:
Having realized the severity of the problem, RELX hurried to put out the fire. At 0:47 on August 19, Guo Guangdong, the head of RELX Public Relations Department, responded to the incident in Wechat friend circle:
“Clarify: Miss Wang Sa falsely entered the meeting hall with the credentials of an invited journalist. Because she was unwilling to sit in the media area, she was recognized finally. RELX’s colleague said to her, ‘Hello, because you didn’t receive the invitation, we hope you to leave now’, instead of saying “the company is very nervous about you” (according to the RELX staff: no one with brains will say that).
We also sent a farewell gift to Miss Wang Sa. The essence of Wang Sa’s incident: it is an activity of rsvp, which needs to ‘invite you, respond, and then come”. Otherwise, it may be regarded as an offense to the host, and it has nothing to do with the narrow mind.”
Nevertheless, public opinion has not been stopped, and things go worse…
At 0:49 on the same day, Luo Yihang, the founder of well-known science and technology media PingWest, made a crack on the incident in the Wechat friend circle: “Lots of shits happen in this small electronic cigarette circle.”
Looking back at the whole incident, some people expressed their support for RELX, insisting what RELX did was right. Others criticized the narrow mind of RELX.
While some others believe that behind the incident is a contest between two strong women.
