When Jay Chou preaches, we listen.
This weekend, the Taiwanese superstar of music, film and now Chinese textbooks came out to condemn the Yulin Dog Meat Festival. In a statement on his official Weibo account, Chou said: “What kind of absurd holiday is this! You can see someone saying that if people don’t buy these dogs he’ll kill them, and onlookers just laugh. Please stop this deplorable behaviour.”
Alluding to this man who was pictured clasping dogs by the neck with metal prongs, throwing them around and threatening to kill them so as to extort money from animal-lovers, he concluded: “Otherwise, how about I come do the same to you!”
Bet these hapless laowai feel pretty embarrassed now that they’re on the wrong side of Mr J.
