China Press reported that one of her posts expressing her gratitude to her husband for caring for her for the past eight years generated the most number of criticisms from her followers.

The daily said that critics called her a “gold digger” and made fun of their age difference. Some even expressed their envy towards Shi for marrying a young woman.

This led the couple to remove the post with Shi adjusting his privacy settings on Facebook.

I’m sorry this happened to you guys, Meng and Shi. Keep staying in love with each other. You guys have our support from Mashable.
