We’ve seen our fair share of those crazy viral challenges that basically promote extreme, not to mention unhealthy body standards.
Like the environmentally-unfriendly ‘A4 Waist Challenge’ in which women hold up sheets of A4 paper to see if the width of the paper can completely hide their waist.
Or the ‘Belly Button Challenge’ that saw netizens, mostly women, show how slim a waistline they have by reaching an arm around their waist to touch their navel.
The latest social media fad to hit China is the ‘Manhua Waist Challenge’ where netizens try to mimic this comic character’s pose (scroll down). (Ed: 'Manhua' means 'comic' in Chinese or 'manga' in Japanese.)
