In case people around him were having any doubts about his incredible wealth, one tuhao went shopping at a Guangzhou mall last week escorted by eight robot servants.
And on the off chance that anyone ever doubted the incredible size of his wallet again, photos were taken for the occasion, showing the guy — flanked by his squadron of robotic maids — picking out some jewelry. So that he wouldn’t get exhausted, his servants carried his bags, coat, towel and water on trays. Fortunately, the entrance to the mall was not a revolving door.
Naive netizens were shocked by this latest ostentatious display of wealth. Some wondered if Wang Sicong, tuhao supreme, son of China’s richest man, could even pull this kind of thing off. Probably not, he’s too busy running up tabs at clubs and buying his dog Apple watches.
However, perhaps this wasn’t such a costly operation after all. Earlier this month, the Guangzhou robot population suffered a round of mass firings from their jobs as waiters after they were found to be totally incompetent. Maybe these unemployed machines are looking for work where they can get it.
A brave new world.
