Chinese citizens have been reacting to the tribunal ruling on South China Sea in very odd ways. To show their patriotism, Chinese citizens have started destroying and smashing their iPhones in protest against the ruling.
A Chinese man aboard a subway beat another passenger for wearing Nike shoes, which is an American brand. Their ways of showing ‘patriotism’ is through violence and destruction—may it be food! Tons of bananas from the Philippines were purposely smashed, destroyed, and buried, to show that they no longer want to trade goods with the Philippines.
In response to China’s actions, Japan and Korea promise to trade better goods with the Philippines.
