A teenager in Hong Kong, named Jacky Lo on FB, sparked outrage after he posted photos on Facebook of a dog churning about in a washing machine. Lo’s latest post stated that he was on his way “back to China,” leading many to believe that he is a mainlander.
The pics, which were posted on August 12, show a fluffy white dog spinning round and round in a washing machine, with the caption (in Chinese): “A super quick way to wash a dog: soak, clean, and dry. All done. Clean and quick!” Also present were a smiley icon and the words “feeling content” in English, reports SCMP. Yeah, he basically makes that Taiwan lady who stuffed her cat in a bottle look like the President of PETA.
When a commenter asked if the dog had died, Lo replied, “Yes! Do you want to see it!”
The dog’s death is unverified, however, as another pic shows the sopping wet dog sitting on a tiled floor, gazing up at the photographer.
Still, this hasn’t prevented a backlash from animal lovers (or anybody with human emotions for that matter), over 19,000 of whom have signed a petition calling for the punishment of this sub-human.
Lo is reportedly fleeing to the Mainland (or already there), as evidenced by his latest post, which addresses the petition: “Wanted?? This afternoon I’m going back to China. See ya later.”
The post suggests that Jacky Lo is likely a Mainlander. However, Lo’s numerous false claims on FB have made him difficult to nail down. Reports Asia One News:
The man made several false claims on Facebook, including the school he was from [and likely his name]. A school in Tuen Mun was forced to release a statement clarifying that he was not related to the school after he claimed to be a student there.
The Hong Kong tabloid [Apple Daily] also said that Lo had pretended to be from a rich family by posting several photos of himself posing with luxury cars. When approached, the owners of the cars told Apple Daily that they did not know Lo at all.
Lo also uploaded a photo of multiple rolls of HK$100 bills, claiming that he had more than HK$10,000 to spend for just two days in Hong Kong. However, Apple Daily reported that the bills were likely to be fake as they did not have any serial numbers printed on them.
If apprehended in Hong Kong, Lo could face a sentence of three years in prison and a HK$200,000 fine. Damn, we were hoping for something more along the lines of a spin in a washer filled with Ebola-dipped razor blades.
