This image posted by an official Chengdu police account on Weibo has received over 50,000 forwards and 10,000 comments since it went up yesterday. The caption warns users to watch their belongings behind their backs (【搭乘公共交通千万不要把包背在身后！】图中女士的背包方式相当危险！请扩散 ! ) with an arrow pointing towards a woman’s purse, but the background subject circled in red, showing a couple (seemingly two men) kissing, has left users wondering about the actual intent of the warning.
Many users found the double entendre rather hilarious, commenting that it was “naughty” but all “a good tease”, while others called the official police account out for the post.
Some were genuinely confused. “I clicked here to see how to prevent theft” but apparently “took a wrong turn,” one person commented.
