Netizens Gather Large Crowd to Block Off KFCs in Henan City

Netizens Gather Large Crowd to Block Off KFCs in Henan City
Jul 21, 2016 By eChinacities.com

Sorry!  The picture does not exist!

This past Tuesday, a large crowd blocked the entrance of two KFCs in Puyang, Henan. Netizens had incited an online movement to block the entrances to the two KFC stores: Puyang’s Lianhua branch and Huanghe Road branch. The two stores were unable to open, and the movement resulted in the disturbance of social order. Puyang police were notified and subsequently broke up the crowd.

Police investigated the incident and found that the action had been organized by Li Xing, 33 from Dong’e, Shandong, Yuan Yong, 36 from Qingfeng, Henan, and Liu Yong, 41 from Hualong district, Puyang. Li was sentenced to 15 days in administrative detention, and Yuan and Liu were sentenced to 13 days.

So Chinese blocked access to a franchise owned by Chinese which would have effected the Chinese managers profits and stoped Chinese people eating there.

A lot of political tension these days. Foreign businesses need to be on guard from some radicals in the days ahead. Many KFC's were badly damaged a few years ago.
