In the past, uncivilized Chinese tourists have desecrated an ancient Egyptian temple, an Everest base camp and Shanghai Disneyland. Their next victim? Sunflowers.
Over the Golden Week holiday, a 300-acre sunflower garden outside of Nanjing has become a popular spot for tourists to visit to enjoy nature and then destroy it by giving the flowers emoji faces for pictures.
The sunflowers don’t seem to like it much.
And neither does People’s Daily, which wrote: “Visitors should know better that the flowers are there for their admiration only, not for their entertainment. They should be more civilized rather than doing damage to the environment.”
We would like to take this time to remind everyone:
