A law professor has threatened Weibo users including Yu Jianrong with legal action for spreading “arbitrarily clipped” video of one of his lectures online. The footage shows him besmirching the honour of female Chinese returning from studies in France. From Global Times:
Zhang Haixia with an institute under the Ministry of Justice explained how all female students from China change into “Super Pan Jinlian” after returning home in a short undated video published online on Tuesday by Sina Weibo user Paris Observation.
Pan is a famously loose character from the Water Margin, one of the four great classical Chinese novels, and the poser believed that Zhang, as a counselor on judicial examinations, should be criticized ….
After finding his video on Wednesday, Zhang responded on his microblog that it was “extremely shameless and despicable public opinion persecution” of him. People had defied his copyright over his own sayings, he wrote ….
“That’s total bullshit,” Wu Shan, a student of international communication and management at the University Stendhal of Grenoble, told the Global Times on Wednesday.
France can also be harmful to Japanese women, who may suffer from “Paris Syndrome“: a form of intense culture shock induced by language and culture barriers, exhaustion, and the gulf between idealised visions of Paris and the reality. The condition can bring hallucinations, sweating or tachycardia, and may require treatment by emergency repatriation.
