Later, Chinese media reported the real reason for rescheduling was that he was barred from leaving China following a laundry list of allegations that includes illegal fundraising, money laundering, gambling, and pornography
However, Justin declined all the allegations. Further, he appeared on the video platform Periscope, broadcasting from what appeared to be an office in San Francisco. The city’s Bay Bridge looks to be behind him. At one point he said he was feeling better, but then added, “I’m not feeling quite well.” He said he was postponing the lunch but was also looking forward to rescheduling it.
But on the same day, he was rocking up at a Tron-organised party in San Francisco. wherein more than 10 YouTubers were present to celebrate the 1st anniversary of BitTorrent acquisition at Michelin-starred Quince. But, as Sun didn’t open up to the Buffett’s charity lunch
However, according to a few sources, Buffett’s lunch isn’t being rescheduled to August and this could be months after that. Thus, the mystery behind canceling/Postponing the crypto lunch remains unsolved.
