China’s MeToo scandal involving a high-ranking Communist Party official Zhang Gaoli (former vice-premier) and tennis star Peng Shuai has taken the world by storm. Peng, who boasts half a million followers on Weibo (China’s Twitter), took to her social media handle to make the accusation. In response, the Communist Party closed ranks, meeting her accusation with swift censorship. What followed was the mysterious disappearance of the star from the public eye.

Global outcry prompted the reappearance of the star, with China’s state media releasing videos of Peng, to show she’s “safe”. But independent contact with Peng hasn’t been made yet.

What made Peng “reappear” so fast, within three weeks?
