Photos: Driving Luxury Cars to Protest CNN

According to CNN: “About 1,500 pro-Chinese demonstrators gathered outside CNN’s bureau in Los Angeles on Saturday, demanding that a commentator apologize and be fired from the network over comments critical of China and the U.S. government’s relationship with it. Protesters gathered at CNN’s bureau in Los Angeles, California, to demand the firing of Jack Cafferty.”

But photos are spreading on the Chinese Internet, showing that among those protesters, a few apparently showed up in luxury cars. It has been an open secret that many Chinese officials and nouveau riches sent their children to study in the US, and many of these young students live a lifestyle that is more luxurious than their Chinese peers. While we don’t know who these protesters are, their photos have already generated not-so-flattering comments inside of China, as the few comments below translated by CDT show. The following photos and comments are from and other Chinese blogs, showing some protesters in Los Angeles:
