A few days ago, we reported about a Chinese man who built an extravagant cemetery and tomb for his father only to have it later torn down by the local government. Today, we have…
Zhejiang Wenling wealthy individual spends 5 million [RMB] to hold an extravagant funeral
March 4th, in Wenling of Zhejiang province, a local entrepreneur held an extravagant funeral for his mother. The site of the memorial ceremony had carpeting laid down, thousands of floral wreaths, and many luxury cars parked. The number of relatives and company employees who came to express their condolences numbered in the thousands. and when combined with the crowds of onlookers, the total people numbered in the tens of thousands. It was revealed the the funeral costs reached around 5 million [RMB].
Comments from NetEase:
Why hold such bullshit inside a school????????
Is this necessary? So extravagant and wasteful, wouldn’t it be better to just let the old person peacefully depart? Wouldn’t using this 5 million RMB to establish a fund to help even more people be even better thing to do for the old person?
Typical nouveau riche, your decline [downfall] is not far now.
The saddest thing in life is to die before spending all your money.
A filial son, deserving of praise.
Faint, how is him earning money to spend on his mother reason for you guys to be so hostile?
Project Hope schools. Project Hope schools are the responsibility of everyone, regardless of whether you have money or not, everyone can go assist in building Project Hop schools, but have you helped before?
Moreover, how do you know him spending money on his mother’s funeral procession means they haven’t contributed to society before, or is all the money they earn only allowed to be spend building Project Hope schools, to be donated out? If so, may I ask how many people will still be willing to go make money, unable to spend the money they themselves earn? If it were you, what would you do? Not have a funeral for your mother, and instead go build Project Hope schools? It is simply not logical, yet you guys insist on mixing the two together. How people who have money spend their money is their business. If you have the heart, you can donate your wages every month, 10% shouldn’t be too much.
According to your logic, if Bill Gates died, should the United Nations conference room be booked for the funeral?
Spend money when you have it, otherwise a few years later it will become waste paper.
I don’t have to look to know that this was done by some lousy Zhejiang person!
Couldn’t you guys do something good, something useful?
Zhejiang people are now notorious internationally, truly shameless and selfish to the extreme!
You guys extort the wealth of the people of the interior to go abroad to do business only to lose money. The face of and the reputations of the country’s people have all been tarnished by you people…..
You guys can say I hate the rich, but what I hate are you blood-suckers who outrageously waste the wealth that you have swindled!
May the entire family of whoever deletes this comment all suddenly die tonight!
You who TMD don’t have the ability to give your mother a grand funeral, what the hell are you screaming about here?! What swindling?! Zhejiang people are well-known for being smart and business-minded! Even if it is swindling, you can choose not to choose Zhejiang products! If you were cheated, then it can only be said you were stupid/foolish! For being so easily cheated! One Zhejiang person doesn’t represent all Zhejiang people! I’m a Zhejiang person! But I too don’t approve of what that entrepreneur did! And what the hell is cursing the entire family of whoever deletes your comment to all suddenly die?! Aren’t you more disgusting that the blood-suckers you mentioned?! I despise disgusting people like you!
What do you think about this funeral? Is it “wrong”? Is it “admirable”? Or is it none of your business?
Not for wealthy Zhejiang entrepreneurs. Personals @ chinaSMACK.
