Peter Ho (born September 13, 1975) is a Taiwanese-American singer, actor and model. Ho was born in Los Angeles, California, and raised in Taiwan and Canada. He studied at Ontario College of Art and Design, and began his singing career after being offered a record deal in a karaoke bar.
Since his debut in 1998, he has released seven albums and has starred in over 25 films and television series, such as Wind and Cloud, the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon television series, One Meter Sunshine and The Young Warriors.
Ho also appeared in the 2003 tokusatsu film Kamen Rider 555: Paradise Lost as Leo/Kamen Rider Psyga; the first non-Japanese Kamen Rider. He then went on to reprise his role in 2009's Kamen Rider Decade.
Ho started out as a model, he came well known after filming a television commercial, "黑松沙士——记者篇", as a reporter. In 1998, he released his debut album in Taiwan, and then also went to Hong Kong. Although it caught a lot of attention, his singing career did not become a success. Ho later moved on to acting in Chinese television dramas. He put most of his efforts in mainland China, but his debut in Japan yielded good results as well. Summer's Desire is Ho's first television series as a producer.
820 Party Controversy
On March 15, 2013, Chinese State media CCTV ran a Consumer Alert warning the public of Apple Inc. They accused Apple of offering less warranties to Chinese customers than to others around the globe. CCTV's charges included "discriminative provisions" such as "shorter warranty periods compared with that of other countries, using refurbished parts for repair and averting after-sale obligations."
At around 8:20 p.m., a handful of celebrities forwarded similar critical remarks about Apple, referring to the segment and attacking the company as discriminatory. All of the comments were preceded with the hashtag, a kind of online marker, "315IsLive." The term "315" refers to CCTV’s headline consumer report, broadcast annually on March 15.
Peter Ho posted at 8:26 p.m. with: "How does Apple dare to play all these tricks on consumers? As an ‘Apple fan’ I’m deeply hurt. Would this be worthy of Steve Jobs? Or to those young people who sold their kidneys [to pay for Apple products]? Sure enough, big corporations take advantage of their customers. Publish at around 8:20." 
After that, netizens looked at all the posts including 315IsLive, and found the other opinion-makers on Sina that had also posted a criticism around the same time, right on schedule.
After seeing the controversy, Peter Ho later posted: "Now it’s me, Peter Ho. Some people stole my Weibo account and sent the above message! Who can tell me what’s going on! This is ridiculous!"
