An elderly man has become public enemy No. 1 in China after a video of him being a total asshole on a train went viral today on Chinese social media.
In the video, a cleaner is seen sweeping up the floors of a high-speed train carriage, telling one elderly passenger to stop throwing melon seeds on the floor. In response, the man quickly loses his shit, pouring out his bag of seeds on the floor. For good measure, he then proceeds to scatter the seeds around the train car, kicking them underneath the seats.
“Sweep that!” he says angrily before bumping into the woman and returning to his seat.
Watch the video below:
Chinese netizens are obviously just a bit tired of being told to “respect their elders,” and have unloaded on the uncouth old man:
“Don’t blame old age, this guy is just an old hoodlum.”
“The bad guys are getting old.”
“The Red Guards are getting old.”
“The day that these old bastards die out is the day that quality of China’s people will finally soar.”
“Put him on the blacklist, so he’ll always have to stand.”
“This kind of trash ought to be thrown off the train!”
