Over the past week or so, it was extremely common to see cheery, often glittery social media posts wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. After all, ‘twas the season to be jolly, right?
While not everyone is expected to observe the occasion, some — and by “some” we mean thousands of enraged Chinese netizens — were definitely not in a jolly mood when they saw a festive clip that Hongkong actor Bobby Au-Yeung posted on Douyin.
In the video, the 61-year-old dons a Santa hat in front of a lit-up Christmas tree while singing holiday songs and waving presents around.
You’d think it’d be considered a wholesome and completely unproblematic video by everyone… but that was unfortunately not the case.
