Oh dear. Pictures of six young foreign males photographing themselves picking up and playing with an unconscious Chinese man have been circulating online, drawing harsh criticism of both the incident, which occurred in Sanlitun at around 05:30 on July 13, and the bystanders who failed to intervene.
In the pictures, the man can be seen being picked up and carried on the shoulders of the young men who took some photos and left him where they’d found him. Several bystanders including a rickshaw driver witnessed the incident and even took photos, but at no point did anyone attempt to help the man, or check to see if he needed medical assistance.
Netizens reacted angrily, of course, with one person complaining at the lack of police intervention: “The pictures are so clear, yet [the police] can’t find them? How can we allow foreigners to humiliate the Chinese people on our own streets?”. Another, rather astutely observed: “Chinese people are all like this. They will angrily protest and say these people must be severely punished but when actually encountering such a situation, they will hurriedly pass by.”
The best comment however, came from 阿冬哥很忙, who suggested that China sends it’s dancing grannies to invade the perpetrators’ countries in revenge.

The second commenter in the article nailed it: “Chinese people are all like this. They will angrily protest and say these people must be severely punished but when actually encountering such a situation, they will hurriedly pass by.” I like the idea of sending dancing grannies as punishment though :D

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. <Edmund Burke> Countries like China and India (still remember the gang rapes in public?) proved how correct Burke is. All in all, how evolved an entire species can be when the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing?

should I remind the Chinese, patriotic cowards, who did nothing, meaning NOTHING AT ALL, while a young lady, was killed at the hands of a CHINESE guy, because she refused to give him the phone number? Do you really need to remind it to you? I guess you need it, indeed. Shame on you who so easily, behind the computer, shade so much cheap nationalistic anger but when it comes the time to prove you protect and care for each others you justify yourself that is not so worthy to risk your life for a ...women. You cowards, should I remember you that the lady who died at the hands of that psychopath, was a mother of a recently new born baby? Of course you need it, bastards, who believe that when a boy comes on the earth, he is worthy of a great party, but when a mother brings a girl, she better swallows in silence the shame of her own family and relatives, and stir the less trouble, otherwise she is...in trouble. Do you remember it? Did you remember that outrageously Chinese crime, perpetrated in front of Chinese people, whom nobody moved a finger to save her life? I hope you did. Now shut up and feel ashamed of yourselves. As for the guys in the picture, let me tell you, it's just a joke compared to the afore mentioned dead women. For the sake of making some sense, here is the news. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/china-shocked-by-brutal-mcdonalds-murder-2014-06-02 Have a "nice reading" cowards.

Maybe we should remind them about that 2 or 3 years old girl who has been hit by a car , then by a van minutes later , left there unconscious while people were quietly walking right next to her and totally ignoring her. Sure its much better to run to help a drunk guy being teased by some foreigners.

The Chinese people seemed pretty good at humiliating themselves. If the nationalistic netizens are so worried about being humiliated, they should be more concerned about the Chinese people tossing garbage on the streets, letting kids pee wherever they please, or the old women dancing in public. Also, love how all the outrage is about "foreigners" doing this (not that they even know what the nationalities of the offenders are). If Chinese people did this, then no worries.

Everyone was drunk, and nobody got hurt. For all we know, they all hail from the same campus, *including* the Chinese guy. But of course we will never know. Xenophobic outrage successfully generated: State media have milked the situation for what it was worth to them, and there will be no further coverage of details.
