Softcore porn star Diana Pang Dan set the Internet abuzz this week when she was spotted attending a Communist meeting in China. 

Microbloggers on Sina Weibo (China's version of Twitter) went wild over the incident, joking about her plans to film a 12 second video to rival the one that ousted Lei Zhengfu, the former Communist Party chief of a district in Chongqing. But whether that's Pang's intention seems doubtful. 

Though the move shocked some, Pang has moved beyond her smutty beginnings filming Category III, or R to NC-17-rated films behind for greener and more philanthropic pastures. As THR reports, "Pang was attending the meeting because she was interested in doing more non-profit service work in Gansu Province." 

As the debate raged on, Pang weighed in on Weibo: "Whether you like me or not, I’m always here. Though you never cared, I never left. Life is long -- Why rush to judge?”
