First of all, Chen hasn’t made a single cent from me, nor has he used a single cent of taxpayers’ money. Second, he is using his own influence, be it positive influence or negative influence, to influence a portion of the people. Although these actions of his are very likely for manufacturing hype and are publicity stunts, I still quite support it. Those who are saying bad things about him, hehe, I won’t comment on that.

城管局执法大队党支部书记 [网易泰国网友]: (responding to above)

This guy is a conman through and through, simply using these publicity stunts to get eyeballs, to then make it easier for himself to do business. Frankly, this guy has no real position/opinion, simply following wherever the wind of society blows. When one day we’re back on good terms with Japan, this bastard will then go to Japan to put on his shows.

Required others to wear green hats… good idea…

寂寞地擦枪 [网易湖南省岳阳市网友]:

Did Geely sponsor this for free? Or did they pay an advertising fee?

网易江西省赣州市网友 ip:115.148.*.*:

Honda and Toyota have already offered zero expenditure compensation, who would make a fool of himself with this stupid cunt?
No Japanese car owners paid attention to him, instead, he has made Chinese cars the laughing stock, and the promotional stunts of domestic cars is still this vulgar.
In other words, those who drives a Geely are all clowns wearing a green hat.

中国湖北省大冶市网友 [网易上海市长宁区网友]:

To get an Emgrand [out of this] is still quite nice.

网易山西省朔州市网友 ip:124.167.*.*:

Even if this is a publicity stunt, he has still donated hundreds of millions of yuan to the country and society. How much have those who don’t engage in manufacturing hype donated?? Why is it that you guys ate shit one day and then suddenly everything you eat afterwards is also shit? A bunch of scumbags.

That Giant bicycle seems to cost more than 50,000 yuan.

巭孬嫑夯昆勥芘 [网易北京市朝阳区网友]:

He’s simply a fraud.

钢o炮槽o棍 [网易福建省莆田市网友]: (responding to above)

What did he defraud you of? Idiot!

网易广东省深圳市网友 ip:58.250.*.*:

Has some stinking money and now does ridiculous things all day long.

内交部发言人 [网易山西省朔州市网友]:

So niubi! A fool and genius at the same time! So harmonious!

淡定的Hold [网易广东省清远市网友]:

Brother Biao, I genuinely like you, but it’s really time for you to take some medicine.

ddd1889 [网易北京市网友]:

The cowards will starve to death, and the daring will be filled to bursting [the bold are rewarded]. The bigger one boasts the better, the more people who are hoodwinked the better, so that even if in the future he can’t carry on, there will still be important/powerful people who will support him simply for the sake of saving face. This is a time of hypocrites and hooligans!

陆廷武 [网易广东省惠州市网友]:

He’s a good man for doing this, using his own money to give you a new car. And people still criticize him for this? Sad.

不要太想我 [网易上海市网友]:

Stop making irresponsible remarks. If you have the balls, why don’t you take out your own money to compensate the car owners for their smashed cars? Yes, he does like creating a stir and being in the limelight, but what’s wrong with that? Did he use your money? Did he use taxpayers’ money? So what if it helps him do business? It’s still better than spending money advertising on CCTV!

飞天梦想家 [网易天津市网友]:

Chen Guangbiao is still a patriot. To benefit his business interests on one side and contribute to society on another, I think that’s rather reasonable, right? Because he’s a businessman.

网易四川省广元市网友 ip:182.147.*.*:

Using a hundred thousand [yuan] to lure people into wearing green hats~~~ is this counted as something to disgust people who buy Japanese cars? And what more, it’s the wives who are putting them on for them. What a fucking BT intention.

songc0 [网易广东省深圳市网友]:

Brother Biao!!! You’re awesome!!! [I] Support you!

wts1123 [网易江苏省连云港市网友]:

Giant, is the speed control system produced by Japan’s Shimano? Sigh! Japanese products are everywhere, and you don’t have the ability to build it yourself, so better take a bath and go to bed [give it a rest]!

wang8102710 [网易湖北省黄冈市网友]:

Brother Biao takes the lead and wears the green hat, so what more need to be said, ding!

网易广西手机网友 ip:117.136.*.*:

Many of us Chinese people are born by Wang Ba [tortoise, means someone is a gutless asshole], unwilling to put out money ourselves, yet when Boss Chen takes out his own money to compensate those car owners who suffered loss, they talk bullshit behind his back, so shameful!

wsm928915 [网易四川省广元市网友]:

When I saw the green hates, I definitely felt a bit awkward, but seeing Chen also wearing a green hat, I then understood that Chen’s actually just trying to convey the green theme and not that other people’s wives are cheating on them. China has so many rich people and wealthy enterprises, as well as so many state owned enterprises, but which of them have come out to do something patriotic or expressed even a bit of patriotism? Some of them are just waiting, but Chen here has done something that a conscientious entrepreneur does. I think it’s ultimately better than Chen giving money to those corrupted officials to use, right? I support this kind of entrepreneur. If all Chinese entrepreneurs were like this, could China not be powerful?

aiguono1 [网易浙江省宁波市海曙区网友]:

Geely Emgrands are good, and Chen Guangbiao is even better! Support Brother Biao’s patriotic, homeland-loving, and environment-loving behavior!

What do you think? Of Chen Guangbiao? Of him providing free new cars to Chinese car owners who had their Japanese branded cars damaged during the recent nationalistic protests and riots? Does his publicity stunts or business interests detract from his social philanthropy? Is he really selling canned air?
