What the Freak?
BEIJING — Since July 9, China has been in the midst of a nationwide crackdown on human rights lawyers, with authorities arresting over 200 people.
But the arrest of two love birds from Beijing seems to be all anyone cares about. The couple, who got it on in a dressing room at Uniqlo's flagship store
in Beijing, were arrested last Wednesday, shortly after their sex video started going viral.
Like all good things, sex and nudity on the internet are banned in China, and the state says these frisky kids violated "core socialist values". People's daily reports three other unspecified people have been arrested as well, likely, employees of Uniqlo which is suspected of organizing the fitting room frolick as a viral marketing campaign.
Ballsy move, if they did, but we're just going to go ahead and guess that investigation is politically motivated too.
Since China's president Xi Jinping came to power in 2013, he's cracked down on lawyers, freedom activists, minorities, and naked people online. To him, bashing a Japanese company is icing on the Orwellian cake.
At this point, I'd like to remind you this video is brought to you by Taiwan, a free, democratic country with no censorship where kids can blow each other on the subway if they feel like it. Don't believe me? Just read Apple Daily!
