Barefoot Girl In Chains On City Bus Arouses Suspicion

On March 27, netizen “Suyan” posted a picture of a woman and a young, barefoot girl in tattered clothes shackled in chains on Chinese microblogging platform Weibo with captions asking, “Is she shackled in chains? Why isn’t she wearing shoes? Who is the woman with her?” After the post was forwarded hundreds of times, journalists picked up the story, and police were notified. However, after reviewing CCTV footage, they decided there was no cause for investigation, claiming the child was merely holding a chain. The decision not to investigate disappointed netizens concerned with the girl’s well-being.

    C’mon, Penny, changing your name to Amanda hasn’t changed the content one bit.

    It looks like she is holding a loose chain and has her foot in an open loop. She doesn’t appear to be ‘miserable’, in fact, she looks rather adorable. Nothing to worry about.

      But why is she holding a chain on a bus?!… That ain’t barbie a doll.

      • Mighty曹

        Creepy little Barbie doll. Well, she does have a shadow so ghosts being released for Ching Ming is not it.

      You mean, you feel insecure now you have nothing to ridicule on?

      • A Gawd Dang Mongolian

        No, this is supposed to be both about news in China, and how the Chinese feel without me putting in the effort of reading/translating the comments.
