This could all very well be a publicity stunt, but a set of photos showing a young woman fighting with her boyfriend at a metro station in Shenzhen has been making the rounds on Weibo. Allegedly, she was dumped by her boyfriend because she wasn’t wearing makeup, according to Xinhua, citing witness accounts.
“Am I embarrassing you?” the young woman was heard saying to the man. “So you just decide to dump me because I am not wearing makeup?”
The man stormed off in a huff, apparently.
There’s no indication at this point as to whether the scene was a set-up. The woman crouching on the ground in fetal position next to a bouquet of crumpled roses is a bit over the top, but then again, stranger things have happened in public.
