Wang Yang is going to be so mad, you guys. Two Chinese couples were photographed brawling in a lavender field in southern France after an alleged photobombing incident.
Looking like a particularly violent Seurat painting, a photo uploaded to Weibo by a Chinese tour guide shows two men punching each other while their female partners, one in a wedding dress, wrestle off to one side.
The guide, who spoke anonymously to the Global Times, said the fight was over an alleged photobombing incident:
“It started because the young couple and their friends accidentally stepped into the newlyweds’ photo. The women began to argue first, and then the boyfriend and the groom joined in,” he said.
“Most people there tried to drag them apart since it was quite embarrassing,” he added.
“The two young men fought shirtless, and the bride’s dress was ripped off. Parts of the field were trampled,” the guide said, adding that other onlookers in the field were very shocked by the incident.
Gu Jun, a professor of sociology at Shanghai University, told the Times “It’s actually good that such a shameful fight happened overseas, which will help more people to pay attention to their behaviour.”
There was much handwringing over the “low character” of Chinese tourists last month after a teenager from Nanjing carved his name into a 3,500 year old temple in Luxor, Egypt.
