A man was publicly shamed in a Shanghai subway station after he was caught secretly filming under women’s skirts. The video of his shaming is being shared by Chinese netizens.

On June 12, a man was caught allegedly filming under women’s skirts on the Shanghai subway, after which he was publicly shamed by an angry husband [see video, turn subtitles on].

The incident allegedly occurred on Line 1 at the People’s Square station (人民广场站), according to Shanghai broadcaster SMG News. The secret filmer was later taken to the local police station.

Many Weibo users applaud the man for confronting the secret filmer, but there are also many who disagree with him hitting the man in the face.

Some netizens feel the man was not “shamed” at all: “Where is the shaming? The man in the video just emphasizes that what he ‘despises most is men who secretly film under women’s skirts and give men a bad name’ – can you call this ‘shaming’?”

Men secretly filming under women’s skirts has become a recurring problem since the rising popularity of smartphones in China. Every year before Summer, social media users warn each other to be extra vigilant when wearing skirts in public transport or on escalators, because men find creative ways to get some under-skirt footage.

Last April, Weibo netizens spread pictures of a man taking pictures under skirts at the Hefei busstation.

It happens often that it looks like someone is just casually holding their phone on public transport when a woman wearing a skirt stands near them, while in fact they are secretly recording.

For many netizens, the man in the video “shaming” the filmer is a true champion. “A hero has risen,” many netizens say.

“I just cannot make sense of these perverts,” one Weibo user says about the secret filmer: “I just don’t see what’s so interesting about the inside of a skirt?!”

Pet Hotels are Booming Business in Beijing

The success of luxurious pet lodging in Beijing has become especially apparent over the past October holiday. Chinese animal lovers are willing to pay up to 900 RMB (±136$) per night to give their pet the time of their lives while they are out of town.

For loving pet owners, before heading out on a holiday, finding a trustworthy pet lodge is often just as important as finding a comfortable hotel for themselves. And nowadays, both should be booked as early as possible during a holiday season.

In Beijing, the booming business of pet lodging was especially noticeable during the Golden Week holiday. Various Chinese media reported that pet hotels in Beijing have become so popular that they were already fully booked a month before the holiday started.

This is also what Zhang Wen, a local pet lodge owner, told Beijing Youth Daily (@北京青年报). He and his colleagues are specialized in tending to every possible need of Beijing’s household pets while their families are taking a holiday.

Some pet hotels now charge as high as 900 RMB (±136$) per day to lodge a pet. The pet lodging business is quickly expanding across Beijing. Some local residents now also improvise lodging facilities in their private homes, asking approximately 30-50 RMB (±5-8$) per day.

With a growing demand for comfortable lodges for family pets, Beijing’s ‘pet hotels’ are increasingly competitive. Some offer private rooms for dogs and assign a member of staff for every pet to look after its diet, sanitation, cleaning, and exercise.

Some pet hotels are even equipped with sporting, beauty, bathing, and water purification facilities, resembling a five-star hotel. Non-traditional pets such as spiders and lizards are also welcome, as long as their owners clarify their routines in advance.

Criticism on luxurious pet hotels

On Weibo, the topic “Luxurious Pet Hotel Charges 900 RMB Per Day” (#豪华宠物酒店900一天#) received some 15 million views this October.

The news, which was first reported by Beijing Youth Daily, stirred discussions on social media. Although many people find the pet hotels cute or funny, there are also many who comment that this kind of extravagance for pets painfully points out the rich-poor divide in China.

“Dogs are living a better life than us humans now,” some said: “I can’t even stay at a hotel that is this expensive.”

One netizen sarcastically commented: “If you can’t afford housing in Beijing, just go and become a pet to someone here.”

Some even find the boom in luxurious pet hotels a worrying trend, saying “this will intensify the social conflicts.”

Besides the extravagant pet spoiling, there are also other reasons why netizens criticize the spread of fancy pet lodging. On social media, questions over epidemic issues are also surfacing.

Some companies that were interviewed by Chinese media failed to show any credentials for providing lodging services and had no in-house veterinary to offer health examinations for the pets taken in; China currently does not have a specific national legal framework nor corresponding regulatory measures for qualified pet lodgings.
