Who is “Rabbit-Abusing Girl?”
Within a QQ group for a certain class of a certain middle school in Leshan, there are many classmates who testify that the girl wearing white in the video is Huang Xiaoxiao. When attending high school, Huang Xiaoxiao’s family’s financial situation was very good, but she kept a low-profile, had a gentle personality, liked English, and liked keeping little animals as pets.
Why “abuse the rabbit”?
When looking for part-time work, her boss had her wear high heels and step on fruits, saying the video was to be published abroad. Afterward, the boss graduation changed the object that was stepped on to fish, worms, lobsters, and other living things, even threatening her that if she did not continue [to do the job, stepping on things], he would publicly release the videos onto the domestic Chinese internet.
What does she think now?
“I am suffering inside, and this is the punishment the animals have given me,” Huang Xiaoxiao says. This incident has exposed a trauma that she had suppressed for years, which is also a good thing, because it has allowed her a certain relief.
Recently, a video of rabbit abuse has been spreading wildly on the internet: A young girl wearing white place a plate of glass on top of a little white rabbit and sat on it until it was crushed to death. Netizens human flesh searched this girl out to be Huang Xiaoxiao (pseudonym).
Two nights ago, a netizen in the know named “瑞丽 [Rui Li]” contact this newspaper’s reporter, claiming that the girl in the video is indeed Huang Xiaoxiao, is from Leshan and now lives in Chengdu.
Yesterday, this Huaxi City Newspaper reporter got in contact with a netizen “饭饭 [Fan Fan]” who claims to be Huang Xiaoxiao.
“Fan Fan” said, her boss at the time had her begin with stepping on bread, gradually leading to her stepping on insects/bugs, lobsters, and rabbits. All these years, she has been carrying this psychological burden. After the video came to light, she has actually experienced some relief, and is willing to go through Huaxi City Newspaper to apologize to all of the animals she has abused and killed in the past, and apologize to all of the netizens whose feelings have been hurt…
Schoolmate reveals that “Rabbit-Abusing Girl” is the daughter of a wealthy family
Two nights ago, this Huaxi City Newspaper reporter received a phone call from someone in the know claiming that he knows the girl wearing white in from the video. She is definitely the Huang Xiaoxiao that netizens found through human flesh search, that she is from Leshan, and saw her driving a BMW several years ago.
Two days ago, this reporter interview a netizen who knew Huang Xiaoxiao called “归零 [Gui Ling] who also said: “Oh…this is something I can’t really talk about, I too only just know about this matter.”
This Huaxi City Newspaper reporter joined a QQ group for a certain Leshan middle school. Through visits, there were many schoolmates who testified that the girl wearing white in the video was Huang Xiaoxiao. There were also people who said that it looks like her but they couldn’t be certain.
There were schoolmates who said that in high school, Huang Xiaoxiao’s family’s financial situation was very good, but she kept a low-profile, had a gentle personality, liked English, liked raising small animals as pets, and was an innocent and pure girl. There was also a schoolmate who said that she would sometimes while talking suddenly widen her eyes in a daze, and was a little fei zhu liu [unconventional].
After the rabbit abuse video, Huang Xiaoxiao quit the QQ group [for the school/class]. Given that the relationship between the schoolmates in the group these days are very casual with everyone no longer keeping in contact, it was very difficult to find her.
Yesterday afternoon, a high school male schoolmate of Huang Xiaoxiao said that Huang Xiaoxiao was willing to go through him to relay an apology to the entire country’s people. After communicating several times, Huang Xiaoxiao agreed to an exclusive interview directly with this newspaper’s reporter on QQ but refused to meet face to face with this reporter.
She thought of committing suicide but her pet cat helped her through the difficult time
On QQ, a netizen going by the name of “Fan Fan” claimed she was Huang Xiaoxiao.
She said that several days ago when she was playing piano at home, she received a call from her mother and learned that the video of her once abusing and killing an animal had been made public. At the time, she felt the sky had fallen, that she was going to lose everything she had. She cried, and her mother cried with her.
She cried for an entire day, and that night, she confessed this secret that she had buried in her heart for years to her husband. “I suggested that we divorce, but my husband said he would stand by me and get through this together.” Afterward, her mother also came to be with her.
In the first few days, she thought that everything was over for her, and thought of suicide. Everyday, she sat alone on the edge of her bed crying. Seeing this, her two pet cats climbed into her arms to sleep. Embracing her warm cats, her heart was even more restless, feeling guilty towards the little animals she had once abused and killed.
“Fan Fan” said, she has loved raising little animals as pets since she was small, has previously had dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, cats, turtles, and fish. In fact, one of the cats she has now in her home was a stray cat that she had taken in. She too feels that abusing and killing animals is very perverse, but the deeper she got into it, it became impossible for her to break free from the boss’s control.
Looking for a job online, she was told that she would be using her foot to mix salad
Huang Xiaoxiao said, in her fourth year of school, her classmates and schoolmates were all busy looking for jobs or internships. Her family doesn’t need her to work [they are rich], but seeing as how her schoolmates were all busy looking for jobs, she too submitted her CV onto the internet to save face, hoping to find work through her own efforts, and so her parents would not have to worry.
Afterward, someone calling himself Brother Ran called her, inviting her to go do video sales. The interview was held in a room near Tianfu Square, and the interviewer simply looked at her legs and approved her, adding that the job was part-time and that the nature of the job was very simple, using her feet to mix salad.
One week later, she officially started work—-wearing high heels stepping on fruit. “I felt it was very perverse, but the boss said it was for certain foreign perverts to watch, and it absolutely won’t be disseminated domestically [in China],” Huang Xiaoxiao said. Thinking that this may be a way of treating a disease/disorder, she agreed.
The first time she wore high heels, she even fell many times. While filming the video, the boss found several pretty girls that she did not know to accompany her, and even provided an English script, and pointed a tiny video camera at her. The boss asked her to pretend to be very happy, and if she did not look happy enough, they would have to redo it.
Behind the abuse and killing was the boss’s control
After stepping on fruit, the boss gradually changed the object being stepped on to toys, fish, worms, lobsters and other living things. Worms were the first thing she stepped on that was alive, and she was so disgusted that she vomited. So the boss demonstrated for her and threatened her that if she did not continue, he would make public on the internet the previous videos of her stepping on things.
On one hand she was afraid of her reputation being affected and on another hand she was also afraid of losing this job, so Huang Xiaoxiao endured her disgust and stepped [crushing the worms]. Afterward, every time she wanted to quit, she would be threatened by the boss, and would thus continue doing it. Huang Xiaoxiao said that the boss was very cunning/slippery, often changing the location of the filming. Sometimes it was hourly rental rooms, sometimes it was in the suburbs, sometimes it were rentals, but all of them had something in common: light pastel colored floors, a sofa, and a table.
Huang Xiaoxiao said that she clearly remembers that the rabbit crushing video was made near Niuwangmiao on the First Ring Road, in a small room.
Huang Xiaoxiao revealed that the boss’s business was not limited to stepping on/crushing little animals and that in the north he also had a stepping on/crushing dog business. She also revealed that her income was not as high as “6000 yuan per film” as rumored on the internet. The first time when she stepped on fruit, she earned 100 yuan. For stepping on/crushing the animals, each time her income was 200 to 300 yuan. For crushing the rabbit, she got 400 yuan.
Fearful and terrified, her conscience felt imprisoned
Huang Xiaoxiao said, her final time was stepping on loach [a kind of fish], and after finishing she vomited fiercely. After a long time, the boss no longer contacted her. Her life had also entered the right track and she had gotten married with her loving boyfriend.
Her conscience was still filled with fear, always afraid that her disgraceful experience would be brought to light. These things were all done behind the backs of her relatives and friends, with none of them knowing that she had filmed animal abuse and killing videos.
These past few years, the one thing she couldn’t bear was others calling her a beauty. “Hearing people call me beautiful, I would instantly think of the things I had one done, and feel that I am a monster,” she said. She continued to have nightmares, always of being chased.
One day in 2008, she received a call from the boss, saying that the website had shut down. At that time, she thought that her conscience would finally be set free, no longer imprisoned, and she was happy for a while. She never imagined that the moment that should arrive would still arrive.
“My suffering is the animals’ punishment for me,” Huang Xiaoxiao said. This incident has exposed a trauma that she had suppressed for years, which is also a good thing, because it has allowed her a certain relief.
Huang Xiaoxiao said that she had thought of reporting to the police before, to expose the gang behind the boss, but upon thinking about her having personally killed so may rabbits, that netizens already think she is a snake woman, she stopped. She was afraid that if she reported to the police herself, no one would believe her, and that the behind the scenes gang could not be caught…
[Huang Xiaoxiao's] Letter of repentance
Old people have said before that people are reincarnated. I used to think they were just stories, but now I hope it is true.
If I am reincarnated, I want to be a tree, to be one with nature, without feelings, and without worries, without thought, and also without hypocrisy. To be simple just like this.
I wonder how I can forgive myself, to allow my heart to feel better, but I can’t do it.
A crack for a mirror is a permanent injury, and once there is a crack, it can never make up for it. Life is a mirror, and my mirror already has a deep crack, one that can never be healed.
I will never be able to forget this trauma. It has already become a stain I can never wipe away. Am I able to get God’s forgiveness? I don’t know. God has given me the punishment I ought to have, and it is the punishment I deserve to have. I have begun to believe in reincarnation, begun to believe in karma.
The mistakes I have committed, one day I will have to pay for them.
I had thought of killing myself, but what has happened cannot be changed, and I can only begin anew. I hope I can use all of my time from this day on to love and cherish all living things, use all of my time to make up for this mistake. I am willing to do everything I can to atone for my sin. Huang Xiaoxiao.
Rabbit-Abusing Girl” called the police yesterday, hopes to expose the black hands behind the [crush fetish] videos
The police state that, according to the information provided by the complainant, there is at present no laws against abusing rabbits, but the police will consider the situation on the internet and see whether or not there is a profiteering group/organization illegally profiting before making a decision.
After the “Rabbit-Abuse Video” was exposed, netizens have human flesh searched out that the girl in white is Huang Xiaoxiao (pseudonym). Yesterday, Huang Xiaoxiao published an apology/repentance letter through this newspaper, apologizing to the general public (previously reported by our newspaper).
Huang Xiaoxiao’s apology, however, has incited even greater arguments, with netizens one after another questioning its authenticity, one netizen even meticulously listing 10 suspicious points, claiming that she is pretending to be the victim to gain sympathy.
After careful consideration, Huang Xiaoxiao decided to ask high school schoolmate Mr. Wu to go make a report at the Chengdu Niuwangmiao police station.
Schoolmate bearing letter of proxy [power of attorney] files report with police
Yesterday, a man appeared at the police station named Mr. Wu, Huang Xiaoxiao’s high school schoolmate. Entrusted by Huang Xiaoxiao, he filed a report with the police.
In his hands was a letter of proxy written by Huang Xiaoxiao:
“I am Huang XX known as the ‘Rabbit-Abusing girl” on the internet, and I know fully that what I did at the time was a terrible mistake, but what is more important is the truth behind what happened. The boss who made the video is already unable to be reached. As a result, my reputation and benefit has been seriously harmed. Having majorly traumatized my life, I now hope to help the police to uncover/expose this person. And from there, expose the power/interests behind the scenes. Reporting to the police on my behalf is Wu XX, identity number is 511…73x. Trustee: Huang XX.”
Huang Xiaoxiao says, ever since she appeared in the video, she has never seen the video of herself. Yesterday, she saw the video online for the first time.
“Is that me? I looked simply insane, I looked so sick,” Huang Xiaoxiao said. She realized that there was an even larger profiteering organization behind the scene, and from this she decided to come forward intending to uncover/expose the gang behind the scenes as well as to prevent even more girls from being deceived. During this time, she has been unable to leave the house, not having the courage to face the people. It is because of this that she asked her high school schoolmate Mr. Wu to represent her.
Police begin their investigation
The police at the police station received and met with Mr. Wu. Afterward, the police initiated an investigation into this matter. They first went to the Dongheng International residential community on the First Ring Road to determine if similar incidents have happened this year. Learning that this video was made several years ago, the police expressed that they will investigate further.
The police on duty says that this incident has had a big impact having been disseminated by much of the media, and that the past few days have all had groups of people coming to report it. Since this matter happened within its area of jurisdiction, the police received and met Mr. Wu. As for whether or not there are applicable laws and whether or not those involved will be subject to relevant sanctions/punishments requires further research following the results of the investigation.
The police also said that according to the information provided by the complainant, there is at present no laws against abusing rabbits, but the police will consider the situation on the internet and see whether or not there is a profiteering group/organization illegally profiting before making a decision.
