Following in the spirit of “My Dad is Li Gang” meltdowns, a Shandong woman made a scene in the Guangzhou Baiyun Airport and pulled out the big guns: powerful family members, regional superiority, and threats to shutdown the entire internet.
Her rant, translated by The Nanfang, went as follows:
I’m from Shandong I tell you! From Shandong! You people are so disgusting! If you want to think I’m mentally ill then go ahead. My father’s name is (too muffled to hear). My mother’s name is Chen. My father is a national-level government official. He was a provincial-level cadre before. So if you people want to play I’ll play with you.
If anything happens to me, you Guangdong people will have to change your mayor (sic). We Shandong people have so many superstars among us. I’m a minor celebrity myself.
[A man asked her whether she had a ticket to fly. She responded:] “You’re local, so I won’t talk to you.”
You bastard! You local people are just trying to wind us Shandong people up. I am representing Shandong Province, and I am also representing some people in the Beijing government itself when I say: “You go as far as to say I have mental health problems? My mental health is fine.”
[She then pulled out her air ticket as well as several other identifying documents.]
I’ve never shown anybody these documents before. Please log into my website. My qq number is 22****967. If anybody tries to mess with me, I could have the entire internet shut down.
Security (finally) brought an end to the woman’s tantrum, and carried her off. Hopefully next week is a bit quieter in airport-related news.
