八万哥 (bā wàn gē) 80k bro:

On September 2, 2011, "Jackie_郑文" posted on his microblog a bill from a dinner he shared with nine other friends. The bill included the following:

Giant Salamander (a nationally-protected endangered species), Australian Lobster, King Crab, Kobe Beef, 15 Year-old Maotai.

The amount of the bill was RMB 80,000 (US$ 12,525).

Details from Jackie's microblog account suggested he was a student at a Communist Party School and there was widespread speculation that Jackie belonged to the rich second generation.

When details of the dinner and Jackie's other ostentatious shows of wealth became public netizens reacted strongly, mirroring the uproar over Guo Meimei's public display of her wealth.

In his defense Jackie stated, "The dinner was so expensive because the prices were so high. I had no choice." (我吃这个饭这么贵是因为餐费这么贵。我也没有办法。)
