A Hunan man was disappointed to be told that he had failed the physical examination required to become a police officer. The reason? He ugly.
Global Times reports that the man posted online that though he scored higher than any other candidate on the written and interview tests, he failed the physical exam because of his acne.
“A policeman should be good-looking, and people who are ugly cannot become one,” a doctor reportedly told the man.
On Thursday, a public security bureau official confirmed the doctor’s judgment.
The bureau said the acne on his face is hard to cure. They added that it is categorized as a dermatological disease and he cannot be employed in accordance with the rules on recruitment.
In a final piece of cruel irony, the man was applying to be an internet cop.
