Netizens are fuming over the story of a a man in Zhejiang who declined his mother a visit because he thought she was “too ugly” and that he would lose face if seen with her. Sweet.
When the mother, surnamed Ding, heard that her son Xu just had a baby girl, she phoned her son telling him she wanted to visit and bring some food for his family. He agreed. The next day, Ding traveled to his office carrying rich noodles, hams, home-made clothes, a basket of eggs and a live chicken, but he didn’t answer her phone call or show up.
Ding spent the afternoon wandering around Xiaoshan Motor City, as her son had a company there. Some store keepers helped her call him a number of times, but no one answered. Eventually Xu replied to her texts, saying that he was on a business trip in Xiamen. Ding traveled back home with a broken heart.
According to Ding, she and her husband worked hard to send their son to a key university, but he hardly called the family and stopped visiting after he’d graduated. He told his mother not to visit him because her ugliness would lead him to lose face.
Naturally, criticism poured in over the matter online.

“Oh, the Earth is crying. But now this case has been reported, the son will feel more disgraced and dislike his mother more. “跳蚤5200 added.
