|Rupert Murdoch's 42 years old American-Chinese wife, Deng Wendi, has become a star in an instant, after she showed sharp instincts and aggressivity when protecting her husband in a public hearing (investigating further the 'phone-hacking scandal') that took place in London on July 19th. The Chinese media and netizens are following Deng and have a lot to say concerning her acts of protecting her 80 years old husband.
英国(England)媒体迅速做出反应，对邓文迪"那一记响亮的耳光"由衷赞叹，有国外媒体称邓文迪是"tiger wife"，即"虎老婆"之意，也有媒体赞赏她是"up like a shot"，像一颗射出的子弹。
As the public hearing began, participants were very calm. Deng Wendi was wearing a red jacket, sitting behind her husband Murdoch. Suddenly one man took out a white cake from a black bag and threw it on Murdoch. The crowd was all struck numb, only Deng responded very quickly, rapidly jumping from her chair, and with a lightning speed swinging a slap on that man, who seemed caught completely unprepared to Deng Wendi's response.
Murdoch seemed not too scared, due to the protection given by his wife. The public hearing resumed shortly after, and Deng Wendi continued sitting behind her husband, just like a 'door god'.
British media responded rapidly, expressing sincere admiration to 'that loud and resonant slap on the face'. Some foreign media reporters called Deng Wendi 'Tiger Wife', while other media reporters admired her for being 'up like a shot'.
In China, Deng Wendi's heroic act in saving her husband has become a discussion hotspot among netizens. The netizens are excited about Deng Wendi's 'being calm when facing danger', and analyze Deng's act in her counterattack.
It is reported that Deng was an outstanding volleyball player when she attended her local school in her student years. One internet surfer admires: "Yao Ming retires, Deng Wendi is stepping forward. China is never short of a military general", "Asian women are truly mighty, going higher to the big hall, stepping out of the kitchen, protecting the husband, going up the stock market." Some netizens also analyze the meaning of this incident to Deng: "Murdoch married a good wife, he even saved himself hiring a bodyguard for his money. Deng provides a meritorious service! Strengthening her status within the Murdoch clan!"
Deng Wendi grew up in Xuzhou and Guangzhou in China. She left the country to study abroad and after became a star in satellite TV. In 1999 she became Murdoch's third wife, and has since gave birth to two daughters.
