Lu's fans have been photographed standing in a 300-meter-long queue at midnight to pose for photos with the post that Lu touched.
Some have called this act crazy, and that the these young female fans could find something better to do rather than create a traffic jam in the middle of the night. On the other hand, many have praised the fans' good etiquettes.
Sina Weibo user Youyouzi said: "I don't know what they are fussing about in the comments. The girls haven't caused any troubles to anyone. They wanted to line up, and it's none of your business."
"It's like how we all go to Oriental Pearl (the landmark TV tower in Shanghai) to take a picture. To the girls, this is a way of entertainment, and they are just taking photographs. See how the girls are all lined up in an orderly fashion. Great! The so-called righteous passersby don't have to point fingers," wrote Weibo user Rachel-YYL.
