The recent Diaoyu Islands sovereignty dispute between China and Japan has triggered an unprecedented wave of anti-Japanese protests across China. But as the Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day draw near, China’s fenqings (angry youths) have found an even more creative way to express their anti-Japanese fervor while enjoying the 8-day holiday.
In Wuming County of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, one local bakery has tapped on anti-Japanese sentiments by selling anti-Japanese mooncakes .
Slogans moulded on the mooncakes read:
“Down with Little Japan!”
“Hate Little Japan!”
“Bite Little Japan to death!”
“Chase Little Japan away!”
These mooncakes are not currently available in most supermarkets, but netizens say they like the idea of having their own custom anti-Japan slogans on the mooncakes, and will purchase if its price is reasonable.
Yes, let’s keep up the festive spirit y’all with these delicious (?) bite-sized pieces of hate!
