Many have tried to stop the scourge of China’s most prolific public nuisances, but all have failed. Even the central government has proved powerless to stop their coordinated takeover of China’s parks, street corners and public squares.
Earlier this month, in a last ditch effort to stop the music once and for all, a man from Guangxi fired his air gun, hitting one of China’s infamous dancing aunties in the leg.
Xinhua reports that the man surnamed Mo fired three shots with his air rifle on March 3rd at a stereo incessantly blasting out catchy tunes across his neighborhood, when one woman went to check to see what the problem was with their boombox, she was accidentally shot.
Mo was apparently annoyed by the aunties constantly blaring music near his home, he then became enraged when they mocked him for requesting that they turn the music off and go away.
After the shooting, he fled to nearby Guangdong province and was on the lam for six days, before finally being captured by police.
He is not the first one to resort to desperate measures against China’s controversial dancing aunties. Over the years, the women have had the cops called on them, parking locks installed against them and even government regulations placed upon them. All for naught. No matter what, they keep dancing on.
Can’t stop the music.
