Chapter 161 What Can They Do?
Leon’s decision not only surprised the guests but also astonished the viewers watching the live broadcast.
“So, even Mr. Foster has no confidence in Luca?”
“Well, setting aside Leon’s character flaws, he definitely possesses good judgment and perception.”
“To be honest, if we only listen to the new song sung by the two of them, besides their fame, Harry’s performance is undoubtedly superior in every aspect.”
“Luca does have a lot of fame, but he was also overhyped before.”
“I prefer Harry’s singing, so I’m betting on him.”
“Our baby Luca is the best, so we’re betting on him.”
Soon, the viewers started placing bets in the live chat.
Although Luca has a large fan base, fans of Simone and others all went to support Harry.
In the end, Harry received an even higher support rate than Luca, sparking disgruntlement among Luca’s fans.
Hence, they started to curse and brought up Harry’s “dark history” from the past.
They claimed that Harry was disrespectful toward the seniors in the industry, always clashed. with Luca when they were in the same company, became even more arrogant after gaining some fame, acted like a big shot, argued with his manager, and tried to seize resources by any
Not believing the claims, Harry’s fans fought back.
Simone’s fans also joined in as they believed in Simone’s judgment. They knew she wouldn’t sign with an artist with a bad reputation.
With that, both sides started arguing.
Gary and his team, who had been watching the live broadcast, were looking for an opportunity to defend Harry.
Seeing the situation, they immediately started revealing the truth.
“I’m an employee of Gray Entertainment. The one who suppressed Harry the most was
“Because he and Harry are similar types of singers, and Harry has better talent and creative ability, he used his background to bring Harry down.”
“Luca became the top star in the music industry mainly through hype.”
“Don’t be fooled by his millions of fans on Facebook. At least half of them are fake followers. who get paid.”
“Harry used to sing songs that didn’t suit his style before because his manager intentionally. arranged it to promote Luca.”
“Harry has never acted like a big shot. Luca, on the other hand, does behave arrogantly plenty of times. He even frequently insults his assistant.”
“Why is Luca able to gain his current success? It’s mainly because he has an influential father and two competent brothers.”
“The resources of Gray Entertainment in the music industry are mainly invested in Luca. Even a pig can fly with such abundant resources.”
“Luca’s fans sure are a joke. They actually said that Harry would do anything to achieve resources in the company. He had been suppressed to the point of being sidelined. How could he still use any means?”
“On the other hand, Luca doesn’t need to make any effort. He has all the good resources because his second brother, Titus, is the company’s top manager while his eldest brother, Reuben, is the president.”
These statements caused everyone to join in the discussion.
Luca’s fans disagreed and started to argue, telling them not to speak without being able to provide concrete evidence.
Little did they know, Gary dared to make those statements because he naturally had plenty of evidence.
So, his team uploaded the songs that made Harry famous when he debuted and the songs he sang later for everyone to compare their styles.
Then, they also started using several accounts they had created and managed before to gradually release evidence of how Luca suppressed Harry at Gray Entertainment.
Furthermore, they even released the list of resources that Harry received.
After comparing, it became clear that even the resources Luca had rejected were still much
better than the ones Harry received.
More importantly, two good music programs were supposed to invite Harry.
However, his manager intentionally gave them to others.
In addition, Gary and his team also released evidence of Luca’s acting like a big shot, insulting his assistant, and not making the most of the good resources he had.
The internet was swiftly in an uproar.
After many saw the solid evidence, they felt that Harry was truly pitiful.
Just because his style was similar to Luca’s, who had connections, not only did he face suppression, but he also got pushed down.
If it weren’t for Simone poaching him to her studio, he would have to sit on the sidelines at Gray Entertainment until his contract expired.
His future in music would also likely be over.
As a result, the public’s impression of Luca significantly worsened.
Considering that it was already late in the evening, and the PR department of Gray Entertainment had already finished work, they could no longer keep up and salvage the situation when trending topics such as “Between Luca and Harry, Who Do You Support?” and “Luca suppressed Harry” started gaining traction, and the online sentiment changed.
The manager of the PR department hurriedly called Titus.
“Mr. Titus, someone has released concrete evidence of Mr. Luca suppressing Harry online. We don’t know who is behind this sudden attack.”
Upon hearing that, Titus understood what the other party meant.
In other words, the mastermind was well-prepared, and the exposure was too sudden. For that reason, the team in the PR department didn’t have time to handle the situation.
The subsequent public relations efforts wouldn’t be very effective either.
“Just let it be then. These are all facts anyway. Afterward, try to help Luca clear his name as much as possible,” he replied casually.
Who else could be behind this? I don’t need to investigate to know it’s Simone’s studio.
Although Titus disliked Gary, he knew he and his team were indeed capable.
They must have obtained this evidence before Harry appeared on the variety show.
“In that case, it will significantly affect Mr. Luca’s reputation,” the PR manager cautiously
Titus responded, “They have solid evidence and are good at seizing opportunities. You lost again this time. Don’t bother calling me about these things anymore. I’m no longer hist manager, and I can’t be bothered about these trivial matters anymore.”
Through my analysis of this incident, Simone must have thoroughly plotted everything. from choosing that bar to subsequently luring Luca to confront Harry.
Otherwise, I won’t believe that there is such a coincidence.
These online gossips begin to spread just as Luca and Harry are about to battle each other, and their fans start arguing over who to support.
Indeed, we had all misjudged this biological sister of ours before; she is pretty formidable.
I have no intention of getting involved in her and Luca’s affairs.
Moreover, helping Luca participate in the variety show was my original plan to see him being dealt with by Simone.
We’re brothers, so he should get humiliated together with us.
I can’t believe that idiot is so easily deceived by Simone’s trap.
It’s only the first day of the live broadcast of the variety show, and he’s already falling into Simone’s trap during the bar event.
I don’t even feel like gloating over him.
After hearing what he said, the manager of the PR department could only hang up helplessly.
He then reported the incident to Reuben,
Reuben had a busy day and missed the live broadcast. However, he was shocked when he learned about Luca’s incompetence, how he was dealt with on the very first day, and how he even allowed Simone and her studio team to help Harry turn the situation around and clear his name. At this point, Reuben didn’t know what else to say. His approach mirrored that of Titus, leaving the matter to the PR department to handle. What can we do except watch and wait for Luca to face the consequences if Simone wants to teach him a lesson? Perhaps he will adjust his behavior from now on.
In a way.
it’s a blessing in disguise. Despite utilizing numerous company resources, Luca still ends up losing to a relatively unknown singer and gets overshadowed. How embarrassing!
Similarly, this incident made Reuben realize that the company’s resource allocation was a mess. It seems that some reforms are necessary.
Other entertainment companies and individuals who were following this incident also took notice of Simone’s role in it. They couldn’t help but admire her and her studio’s operations. team for their adeptness at seizing opportunities and praised Simone’s brilliance.
Meanwhile, Luca remained unaware that his and his beloved adopted sister’s behavior in the bar had become a hot topic on social media, attracting heavy criticism. He was still focused on learning the song at that moment.
Half an hour quickly passed, and the young female show host took the stage. She asked the two of them, “Who wants to go first?” Luca looked at Harry but didn’t suggest Harry go first this time. He believed that if he sang first, it would leave a deeper impression on others and put pressure on Harry. Therefore, he wanted to go. first.
