A video now going viral on iFeng.com shows a white blonde male putting his feet over the seat before him and a Chinese female passenger’s head on a train from Shenyang to Beijing. It is not clear what happened before the start of this video, but the woman was clearly irritated by the man’s behavior. She stood up, turned around, and hit the man’s feet with a magazine, saying “you are a big shame to your country.” (“你真给你国家丢人”)
However, the foreign man showed no intention to move his feet away and instead called the woman’s beating a “a massage.”
The woman finally threw her magazine at the man as the man hurled other insults at her, saying she was “Shabi” (傻屄: “silly c*nt”).
The train’s policeman later arrived and questioned the foreign man. The laowai said there were problems in communicating with the woman and denied that he had uttered any dirty words.
He also told the policeman that he is a cellist working in Beijing, whereupon the policeman expressed mock surprise that he wasn’t a ballet dancer instead since he had a penchant for putting his feet where they shouldn’t be.
The policeman then left, advising the Chinese passenger to let the whole thing go since “he’s an artist”.
UPDATE 1: The douchebag laowai cellist has been named.
UPDATE 2: And he has apologised. Show’s over.
