Alyssa was shocked! Then, she noticed a flickering green light hidden in a corner. Someone had set up a video camera there when no one had noticed.
Everything from the onset until now was broadcast publicly. The Harpers’ blaming and arrogant attitude and Preston’s pompous demeanor were broadcast for all to see.
Everything happened so discreetly that even Alyssa, as meticulous as she was, didn’t realize it in time.
Netizens were entering the live broadcast room like a swarm of bees.
The live broadcast had reached five million live viewers. The comments started flooding in.
“Oh, my God! The Harpers are vicious. They would abuse an animal to win a competition. They even tried to trample Ms. Taylor to death. This is a crime! It’s murder!”
“This is downright demoralizing! They are society’s scumbags!”
“The Harpers are a shame to society. Cornelius’ father was a labor worker who carried sandbags at the piers of Belbanks. Then, he became a violent gangster. He was an aggressive risk-taker. Eventually, he became the head of the mafia through malicious acts and coincidental luck. Then, he founded the Harper Group.”
“Oh, so they are the descendants of lowly gangsters. No wonder they are so distasteful with their actions and words.”
“They are a whale of a difference from the righteous Taylor family. Zoe will never be a worthy comparison to Ms. Taylor. She will never live up to who Ms. Taylor is.”
“Sigh, why is Mr. Landon a Harper? He is so handsome. Such a waste of good looks!”
“Screw moral principles! When did good looks become the
benchmark in differentiating right and wrong? But, Landon is too handsome for his own good …”
Before Jasper executed the plan to broadcast this incident, he had given Landon a heads-up.
He had his concerns initially, but Landon was unbothered. Landon had agreed to it. “Do it. Don’t just do it. Make sure it causes a huge scene. Preston has high blood pressure. Make sure you trigger him. so badly that he can’t get out of bed for half a month. I will appreciate you so much for that.”
Jasper frowned and laughed wryly. “You are such a huge betraying rascal. But, you must know the power of public opinion. It can either
make or break the situation.”
Landon pursed his lips. He flicked his cigarette toward the ground. Previously, I thought I was part of the Harper family. Now, I have a place I can call home. So, the Harpers are the Harpers. I am a
The live broadcast had utterly crushed the Harpers’ arrogance.
Zoe observed how her family had become a hot topic in the public eye, with their name being dragged through the mud. She wasn’t the least bit worried about her beloved grandfather at all. Nonetheless, she was relieved that Max didn’t rat her out.
Moreover, she managed to maintain her composure, displaying no signs of fear, panic, or embarrassment like Sophia did.
Nevertheless, appearing on the broadcast was more humiliating. While the Harpers could endure public humiliation, she couldn’t afford
Penelope, a housewife, found herself ill-equipped to handle the situation. Both physically and mentally exhausted, her forehead was covered in sweat, and she struggled to stand upright any longer.
“Grandpa, Uncle Preston, I don’t think my mom can hold on any longer. I need to get her to the hospital now.”
Zoe didn’t wait for a response from them. Swiftly, she took hold of Penelope and slipped away under the protection of the bodyguard.
Zoe helped Penelope get into the car in the parking lot. Penelope appeared much better than before. She was terrified and unwilling to endure further humiliation by staying there.
