Two days ago, a Shanghai radio station, AM990, broadcast a program where the host said that Shanghai people speaking the Shanghai dialect (Shanghainese) in public was a bad habit and that Shanghai people use speaking Shanghainese to show that they are superior to other Chinese/people.

Maybe Shanghainese have already gotten used to various offences by people from the rest of China. However, this time, it came from one of their very own radio stations. See how some Shanghainese handled it:

From KDS, “Radio AM990 openly anti-Shanghai, everyone sign this boycott of the station!!!“:
