A Spanish national will be deported from China after having sex with a woman on a Chengdu street in the city’s business district. The incident occurred on the night of July 6th.
According to various Chinese news sources, the foreigner and a young Chinese woman were intoxicated when they were doing “their thing” (啪啪啪 ‘pā pā pā’, Chinese slang for ‘having sex’) on the streets of Chengdu. The young man is a 25-year-old Spaniard by the name of David.
While having sex by the side of the road, the two were attracting a large crowd with their behavior, as can be seen in videos taken by bystanders (censored video here).
The (uncensored) videos that are circulating online show how the two are lying by the side of the water, performing oral sex on each other and having intercourse as the crowd cheers them on.
“Some bystanders yell ‘sex! sex! sex!’ encouraging the couple in Chinese: Jiayou!”
As the couple are having sex, some bystanders yell ‘sex! sex! sex!’, encouraging the couple in Chinese: “Jiayou!” But there are also people who tell the lovers to go elsewhere. The couple, however, does not respond and continue their ‘pā pā pā.’
Police later arrive at the scene and arrest the Spaniard for ‘violating public security.’ In the video, the young man is heard responding to the police in broken English, just saying: “I don’t know.”
The woman is heard speaking in Mandarin, saying: “I am together with him.”
Local Chengdu police have confirmed on their official Weibo account that the man has been detained for ten days and will be deported after his release. No details have come out about the young woman and what consequences she faces for the public rendezvous, although English-language Chinese newspaper Global Times reports that the woman has also been arrested.
Pictures of the incident were released on Chinese website Cineseitalia.com (奋斗在意大利), a platform for exchange students. Some netizens on Weibo say that they have more (uncensored) videos of the incident on their phone.
The incident has caused a commotion on Chinese social media, where thousands of people discuss it. Although many people find it amusing, there are also those who express anti-foreign sentiments and also those who scold the Chinese woman for ‘degrading herself.’
“Foreigners just think that Chinese women are cheap and they treat them as toys, and this is the reason why!”
Roughly, there are two sides in the debate; those people who blame the girl for her behavior, calling her a ‘prostitute’, and those who berate the foreigner, saying he is ‘foreign scum’ taking advantage of a drunk Chinese girl.
There are also many people who denounce the entire scene, including those cheering on the couple. “They are all like wild dogs,” some say.
One person writes on Weibo: “As a person from Chengdu, I find this shameful. As a person from China, I also find this shameful. Those people cheering are all good-for-nothings! That woman has no self-respect and no self-dignity. Those foreigners just think that Chinese women are cheap and they treat them as toys, and this is the reason why! (..) It’s infuriating!”
“This is foreign trash coming to China, happens all the time,” some people say. Multiple insiders from Chengdu allege on Weibo that ‘David’ had just arrived in the city on the day the incident occurred.
“What the foreign guy does is disgraceful, and as for our drunk Chinese compatriot, this is just humiliating. The guys yelling at them to ‘spicy things up’ are nothing but lamentable!”, one commenter writes.
‘David’ is expected to be deported before the end of this month.

Online Anger over Inappropriate Toast by Dutch Watch Brand Executive at Chinese Dinner Party
This is how NOT to do a toast in Dutch!
The Amsterdam-based watch & jewelry brand Rosefield has recently come under fire within the Chinese community in the Netherlands after a video went viral showing Rosefield’s CEO and its Head of Sourcing proposing an unusual toast at a Chinese dinner party.
The video, that was viewed over 173,000 times on Dutch site Dumpert.nl, shows a woman in a white blouse bringing out a toast, saying:
“In Dutch, we say ‘ganbei’ or ‘cheers’ in this way, and it would be nice if you all can say the same, we say: ‘dikke lul.‘”
The people at the table then proceed to toast saying “Dikke lul” – which, in fact, is not the Dutch word for ‘cheers’ but for ‘big dick,’ something that the Chinese people at the table are seemingly not aware of.
On WeChat, Chinese-language newspaper Asian News (华侨新天地) reported about the video and identified the Dutch woman and man at the table as the CPO and CEO of Rosefield Watches, a fast-growing luxury brand that is active in various countries.
Asian News describes the incident as a way of “ridiculing Chinese friends,” and writes it has triggered anger online.
Asian News (华侨新天地) is a Chinese language newspaper founded in 1992. It is mainly distributed in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany. Its WeChat account has some 120,200 followers, and the post on the ‘cheers’ video was among its most-well read on WeChat this week.
The blog post noted that ever since the ‘dikke lul’ video has gone viral in the Netherlands, it has become one of the first results showing up when searching for the vulgar expression ‘dikke lul’ on Google.
Although it is not clear where the video was filmed and how it ended up on short video site Dumpert, it is rumored in WeChat groups that it was recorded during the Hong Kong Watch and Clock Fair earlier this month, and that the Chinese guests are business relations of the Dutch brand (unconfirmed).
The comment section on the Dumpert site shows that although some Dutch commenters think the video is funny, there are many who find it “vulgar,” “rude,” and “distasteful.”
Although many (overseas) Chinese expressed anger in various WeChat groups – some expressing regret over a Rosefield watch they recently purchased – the Asia News blog does remind readers that we do not know the context of the video, and whether or not there was a certain pretext or common understanding to the joke.
Nevertheless, the blog states, this kind of behavior is not professional and if a company such as Rosefield wants to earn money in China, “it should also respect Chinese culture and people.”
Although there have been ample discussions about the controversial video on Wechat, there are no online discussions about this issue on Weibo at the time of writing.
Over the past year, many foreign brands became a focus for controversy in China.
In November of 2018, Italian fashion house D&G faced consumer outrage and backlash on Chinese social media for a video that was deemed ‘racist’ to China and for insulting remarks about Chinese people allegedly made by designer Stefano Gabbana.
Swiss investment bank UBS sparked controversy in June for a column which mentioned “Chinese pigs.”
Over this summer, various foreign companies apologized to China for listing ‘Hong Kong’ as a separate country or region on its websites and/or t-shirts.
Still curious about how to actually say ‘cheers’ in Dutch? It’s ‘proost’ and this is how you pronounce it correctly.

This Is the BBQ Restaurant Jack Ma Visited in Zhengzhou
Jack Ma’s late-night snack means overnight success for this Zhengzhou skewer place.
Whatever Jack Ma does or says makes headlines in China. The superstar Alibaba founder has especially been a topic of discussion over the past week since his meeting with Tesla’s Elon Musk at the World AI Conference in Shanghai, where the two billionaires had a discussion about the risks and rewards of AI development.
But on social media platform Weibo, Chinese netizens have not just been discussing what Jack Ma has been saying over the past few days – what he has been eating has also become a topic that has attracted thousands of views and comments this week.
A BBQ skewer restaurant in Zhengzhou, Henan Province, gained overnight fame after a visit from the business magnate and his group. The Alibaba delegation visited Zhengzhou for a meeting concerning a strategic partnership between Alibaba and the local government.
Jack Ma visited the barbecue skewer restaurant around one o’clock in the morning, and was photographed and filmed by many people standing around.
Ma visited Dehua Pedestrian Street and Zhengdong New Area before arriving at the Zheng Xiwang restaurant. Ma was with a small group of people and spent a total of 700 yuan (around 100 US dollars).
Grilled skewers are popular all across China, but especially in the Zhengzhou region, which is also nicknamed the “holy land of skewers.”
The Zheng Xiwang restaurant visited by Ma was founded in 1991 – although it was just a street stall at the time – and has been thriving ever since.
Besides skewers, Jack Ma allegedly ordered stir-fried Hunan prawns and spicy clams.
As Ma’s visit to Zhengzhou and the restaurant has gone viral, some social media users write that they have also visited the restaurant immediately after, sharing photos and their receipts as proof.
Weibo user Jia Chengjun (@贾成军) from Henan shared photos of people lining up to get a table at the popular restaurant.
According to various reports on Weibo, the restaurant’s owner initially offered Jack Ma the dinner for free, but the billionaire refused and paid anyway. His payment method will not come as a surprise; he paid with Alibaba’s online payment platform Alipay.
“Why would you offer him a free meal anyway?” some netizens wondered: “He surely has more money than you!”
Curious to try the same food as Ma? Zheng Xi Wang is located at the intersection of Fuyuan Street and Yingxie Street in Zhengzhou (福元路与英协路交叉口向西160米路北(银基王朝南门)).
