A video showing a man dressed in clothes that allegedly belonged to his late wife on a bus in Zhengzhou, Henan province went viral online yesterday.
Reports indicate that the man was seen wearing a red bra with two apples inside, a pair of high heels shoes and a pair of women’s long-johns. Residents in Zhengzhou said that he is commonly seen in public dressed this way, according to Tencent News.
Friends of the man told reporters that the clothes all belonged to his wife, who passed away years ago. He started wearing her clothes afterwards as a way to feel closer to her.
“We hope that professional mental counselors can help him,” the bus driver said in a video report.
The video stacked up more than 2.4 million in just about 15 hours. Web users, who’ve dubbed the man “Uncle Bra” or “Uncle Apple, expressed sympathy for him and his struggle with loss.
“Their love is too deep. He can’t endure her sudden passing and became like this,” user “(⊙o⊙)囧心系☞你” said.
