It happened when Jay was filming a graduation ceremony and hired 400 extras to portray as students… and only paid those extras ~USD1 per hour salary.

Most of the extras didn’t mind though, as their purpose was to see their idol Jay Chou in person. The netizens however are not happy and claimed that Jay was stingy and the production team was using Jay’s popularity to exploit young fans.
