英文中如果形容“什么事闹得满城风雨”可以使用句型“all of the rumors were let loose about sth”,其中“rumor”就是“谣言”的意思~

我们一起看一段话来加以理解:

Suddenly all of the rumors were let loose about allegations of domestic violence. After making public apologies and admitting to his faults, Woods said he would "take an indefinite break from professional golf". Whether Woods will play in 2010 is still up for question.
一时间,满城风雨——关于家庭暴力的指控。在公开道歉并承认了自己的过错后,老虎伍兹表示自己将“无限期地退出职业高尔夫赛”。2010年老虎伍兹是否还会挥动球杆,这仍然是一个疑问。
