围观五猫 (wěiguān wǔ máo): surround and watch five cats

This sounds the same in Mandarin as “surround and watch the fifty center.”

This comment is used when someone makes a pro-government comment. When people make pro-government comments, netizens sometimes joke that they are members of the Fifty Cent Party. The phrase roughly translates to “check out this government stooge.”
