八万哥 (bā wàn gē) 80k Brother:

@Jackie_郑文's bill, as originally posted on his Weibo account.

On September 2, 2011, "Jackie_郑文" posted a bill from a dinner he shared with nine other friends on his Sina Weibo account. The bill included a number of exorbitantly priced exotic dishes, including:

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

The total bill was more than RMB 80,000 (about 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 [zh] became public, netizens reacted strongly and dubbing him “80K Brother”. Netizen reaction to this conspicuous consumer mirrored the uproar over Guo Meimei months earlier.

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。)
