2-Year-Old Child Smokes & Curses In Sichuan

From Sohu:

2-year-old child who can’t even eat candy knows how to smoke skillfully and curse shocks people.

The user that made the post says, this video was recorded by a friend while he was eating barbecued fish; it was him that put it on the web. The child’s parents sell fish at a food market, and since there are some bad people there, the bad behavior of the adults present led to what we see in this video. The original poster also says that this child’s behavior fully illustrates the meaning of the saying “With good people you learn to be a good person, with bad people you learn to be a bad person.”

The innocent and angelic child is blameless. With the exception of a small number of people that take this as a form of entertainment, most people vehemently condemn the adults in this child’s life. Many people think this child’s parents are disgraceful, and many also insult those that stand and gawk at the scene for a laugh. This ruins the child, their conscious has completely disappeared.

[In the video] we only see the child dexterously take the cigarette tucked behind his ear, his right hand with a cigarette and his left holding up a lighter. Possibly because his hand isn’t strong enough, he flicks the lighter but fails to light the cigarette. The child simply places the cigarette directly in his mouth, both hands holding the lighter to light up the cigarette. After it’s lit, he uses all his strength to inhale twice, and then rests the cigarette between the index and middle fingers of his right hand. Glowing with pride, he starts smoking in front of the adults.

Comments from Sohu:


Poor kid.


God, what kind of father is this? Really shameless.


How in the world is there a dad like this, purposely teaching his kid wrong. Such a small child, can his body take it?


Is that his dad there behind him? He should be killed!


First, are there any lawyer friends out there who can check if child protection laws say it is illegal to incite a child to smoke? What kind of liability should that person have?
Secondly, this behavior is even worse for a child than domestic violence. There ought to be clear institutions that have clear attitudes and actions regarding this, otherwise the head of the family will think that because it is his own child, other people can’t stop it. [These institutions] should be like they are in foreign countries; if a parent abuses a child, neighbors all have the power to report it to the police. Other people should also report to the police and not simply put pictures they took on the internet to give people a laugh.
For a parent to be so ignorant and confused is really worrying.


You don’t need to blame anyone, this is completely the responsibility of the adults who only know how to make money and nothing about taking care of children. Poor kid, after seeing this I am really distressed. This is the difference between people with knowledge and those without it.


This shows that the citizens’ character have improved substantially…
All a result of always looking towards money…


Isn’t this kid already ruined? It would have been better to not have given birth to him at all. Do the child’s parents not care? I pity this child, just beginning to learn how to be an upright person and already becoming like this. This will also affect his growth/development.


The child is innocent, it’s just the parents failed to educate him.


Without culture, one’s character is low just like this.


This kid is talented, the gates of the reeducation and reform center are already wide open for him, wish him well!

Note from Fauna: I saw this video and prepared this post 5 days ago but did not have time to post it. Here are the comments I collected before for this story. Thank you to Chris for doing this post.

Comments on Mop:


Are the adults in his family 草泥马 [Grass Mud Horses, “cao ni ma”, pun for “fuck your mother“]?


Sichuan folk legend lives up to its reputation! How many tobacco factories did you rescue??? How many prisons have you rescued???


This little child is truly an expert at J8 [being cocky/impressive]. I must say they way he flocked his cigarette shocked me…


Pretty cute~~


These few adults are SB. Such a small child and teaching him this rubbish. I do not know if they are malicious or mentally retarded and do not understand the consequences. I BS these trash [the adults]. Just looking at these second-rate goods makes me angry.


80s, 90s, 00s, each generation stronger than the one before.


There is this kind of dad? Worse than a beast!


Fuck your grandfather, our motherland’s next generation have all been led astray by this bunch of bastards with nothing better to do. Fuck.


Seeing how experienced this little child flicks his cigarette, I felt very sad.


Motherfuckers! Human flesh search his parents!!
Treating having a child like buying a toy???


The people around him are all motherfucking trash. Our countrymen’s characters truly are motherfucking low. Seeing this child like this, not only is it not education, it is motherfucking corruption! I hope your entire family dies~!~!~! All of you are a bunch of cunt-raised lowly bastards~!

扑倒一头猫 :

The 00s generation is much more “niu bi” than the 90s.


With children, what you teach is what they will learn. This child’s parents are trash.


I am very sad to say, this is from our Chongqing [city in China]…


This baby’s appearance is not bad, will definitely be a “fei zhu liu” in the future.


Children should not smoke~
It will affect his development, his nerves…
Sigh…such a clever child.


“The earthquake shook the child stupid”!!!
His father is very NB.


All Sichuan people are like this, there are a lot of children smoking. It is hard to find a Sichuan girl in her teens who does not smoke. If you do not believe me, just go to Sichuan and have a look.


Even animals all know how to protect their babies and avoid danger!! Staying away from anything that might harm their babies!!
Why is it that we [humans] do not? On one side, we use poisonous milk powder to kill our own children, on another side we happily teach our children to smoke (smoking harms the health, find a cigarette carton and it is covered with warnings).
Are we superior because we are humans, or are animals even more superior for protecting their children?
Animals protecting their children are superior — we are no better than beasts.
If there are more of this kind of thing, these kind of parents, our people will very quickly become extinct!!!
Jia you jia you!!! I will die with you all!
