Sorry!  The picture does not exist!

Female CCTV anchor Wang Yinqi recently came under fire for wearing an Apple Watch while on air. Viewers noticed the anchor wearing the watch on her news show on May 5. Her actions sparked an online debate in which Netizens argued over whether or not she should have worn the watch.

Some Netizens accused Wang of showing off her wealth. Others say that wearing the watch on television is free advertising for Apple. Those sided with Wan said that the watch was only worth a few thousand Yuan, and wearing it is not a show of wealth. Those who believe she should not have worn the watch have pointed out that the watch did not match her outfit, and questioned why she wore it.

CCTV relaxed its dress code for hosts and anchors in 2010. CCTV hosts and anchors are allowed to wear accessories and dye their hair. Therefore, Wang did not break any rules by wearing an Apple Watch.

It matches her blouse, so I think it's perfectly fine.

I just hope she wasn't reporting on a refugee crisis, or kidnapped children, or something, while people whinged that her Apple watch didn't match her outfit. That would be so...unsurprising...

Unsurprising.....spot on. Even if she was reporting on these they would still glue their eyes to the watch. Look at what they do about pollution, look where the staircases of their apartments lead to...Their ancestors (pre communist-'china') had a warning slang, hungry dogs fight for shits. Heed this warning slang my friend; if their ancestors knew one thing inside-out it was 'hungry dogs'. To be fair, this is true for human beings en masse.

btw, that watch may not be hers but part of Apple's (legal but questionable ethics, sneaky at the very least imo) marketing strategy for TV and movies placements. * www.dailytech.com/Apple+Gets+Free+Product+Placement+in+TV+Shows+Movies/article24679.htm * www.quora.com/Why-does-everyone-in-movies-use-Apple-products

How is it any different to wearing a Casio or Citizen watch? Chinese netizens need to get a life.

I guess a lot of the criticism came from her wearing a foreign watch on Chinese TV. How unpatriotic!

Notizens complained she was showing off her wealth, while they left their Ferraris running outside the most expensive restaurants, ordered plate after plate of food they never touched, smoked cigs that cost over 100 kwai per pack, and got sick on tiny shots of bai jiu that cost over 1000 per jug...

Similar to the models in Shanghai story. A beautiful woman who takes care of herself and can afford to buy her own luxury goods is less likely to go for a loser with money. This angers the women hating losers, if this trend continues they'll have to kidnap women from Vietnam like the impoverished villagers.

Sources tell me that 30 college campuses have been selected to transition from the online debate format to an in-person one. Check with your local university to see if it has been selected...

Anyway, the watch is pretty cool. Honestly, though, this is nice news article for a change, better than the ol' "foreigners popping off in China" posts I am sick of reading. I was one of the first on my block with the Gear to go with Note 3. It holds its own with the Rolex, Movado, Tag, and Omega crowd. If thats what she likes, let her wear it. Maybe her husband or father bought for her, so what?

Not sure what is sadder, chinese care about trivial stuff like this, or news websites writing articles about chinese people care about trivial stuff like this.
