A coal boss applies the concept of money talks on his daughter’s wedding, successfully inviting all sorts of important and famous people.

RRRRAAA [网易浙江省杭州市网友]:

As long as the source of the money is legit, how he wants to spend it is his business. Unfortunately, is this possible in China?

拆迁队陆政委 [网易广西防城港市网友]:

Fuck~~ rich people sure are different from the rest of us, admire!!!

yhdg510 [网易广东省东莞市网友]:

Rich people show off their wealth and women, while the poor toil to mine coal.

网0123 [网易广东省江门市网友]:

In the face of renminbi, no celebrity can resist [with enough money, any celebrity can be hired].

拆迁队陆政委 [网易广西防城港市网友]:

Fuck~~~these aren’t minor celebrities either, rich people sure have influence, admire!!!

希义欧 [网易河南省鹤壁市网友]:

Spending this much money to marry off a daughter, can’t imagine what the bride looks like.

xiashijie [网易广东省广州市网友]:

The power of money is the greatest.

怪物公司老总 [网易四川省成都市网友]:

Coal, oil, etc…these are all TMD supposed to be our public property!

alonsoisliu [网易广东省深圳市网友]

In short, our current domestic situation is that the rich are getting richer while the poor are getting poorer.


The marriage between a coal boss and a real estate developer is the joining of the powerful!


Even if the source [of the money] is legitimate, the money of coal bosses is all unconscientious money. Think of how hard it is for those coal miners going into those coal mines, how dangerous, and how little they get for it.


“From every copper of the coal boss drips the blood and sweat of coal miners.”

让鸡蛋飞0 [网易广东省网友]:

Other than “niubi“, there’s not much else to say.

dqh0909 [网易广东省江门市网友]:

A loss, both giving cunt and burning money.

ssn1127 [网易山东省网友]:

Coal resources are national property, so how can this boss have this much money??! Recommend the state send the auditing bureau to audit and investigate!! Don’t let individuals misappropriate national property as their own!! And then parade their wealth!!! Arrest them and bring them to trial!!!!!

What do you think? Do you envy the rich? How much did you spend on your wedding?
