It’s reported that a soft drink company organized a Happy Run event at China Three Gorges University in Hubei. The participants could get free stuff, such as Green tea, T-shirts, pastel pencils and other items, but what began as a peaceful giveaway quickly became a near-riot when a group of aunties joined in and turned it into a “grabbing war”, according to News 163.
According to witness accounts, crowds of aunties were swarming to “grab” the free stuff, resulting in overturning the working tables.
A few of them seized a T-shirt and began a tug-of-war.
Some web users said, “The Red Guards are old now.” Another wrote, “Oh, they are all villagers.” Others jokingly said, “Give them some free condoms, they probably wouldn’t fight for those!”
