Chinese Mob Strips Woman For Wearing “Kimono”


A Chinese mob protesting Japan’s defiance reportedly attacked a Chinese woman for wearing what they thought was a kimono, tearing off her clothes in anger – only to discover she was actually wearing traditional Chinese robes.

The protests occurring in Chengdu involved attacks on cars and shops thought to be Japanese (although in at least one case of a “Japanese” restaurant being ransacked the shop was actually entirely owned and staffed by Chinese).

However, in at least one case the mob also took its frustrations out on a woman spotted at a coffee shop.

Their unfortunate victim, a Chinese woman, was wearing traditional Han Chinese robes – unfortunately the distinction was too much for the mob, which mistook them for a Japanese kimono and attacked her, tearing off the offending clothing.

The type of dress is not specified, but there are a variety of styles of traditional Han robes which resemble kimono:


The woman had to flee to the shop’s restrooms, where she borrowed some clothes and changed into safer attire.

A Hong Kong newspaper reports the demonstration itself was “spontaneously” organised by a student group over the Internet, without state sanction.

No arrests were made, but the government has stressed to the mobs that “they should express their patriotism within the law.”

    Even Asians can't tell each other apart.

    True, that.
    The only way to tell a China-Chinese from others like Myanmar or Vietnamese is to hear them talk.

    HEHE stupid China Chinese. So stupid that they attack their own people. I dont even think they know what they are doing.

    To people that want to visit China, come to Taiwan instead. We will take care of you, and obveiously. Taiwan is better.

    Good for you guys over there. Long live the Republic of China/Taiwan (depending on your political allegiance). ;)

    Besides Taiwan, you guys can feel safe when deciding to come to Hong Kong as well, just don't cross the border over into MAINLAND China - that's like a completely different "country".

    And it's not just that they drive on the "wrong" side of the road (for us Commonwealth and Japan road-friendly people anyway), everything about them just feels "wrong".

    So bad was the bad blood due to the Islands incident that Hong Kong tour groups in Japan have to emphasize they're NOT FROM CHINA.

    For some reason, Japanese people just treat Hongkongers and Taiwanese (and Singaporeans, for that matter) much more friendlier than them "mainlanders" - who are seen as "arrogant noveau rich hillbillies".

    I guess it must've been the Cultural Revolution and 61 years of inane communist rule that created such low-quality "patriots".

    Its sad when a Chinese person can't identify Chinese clothes. The mob should be ashamed of assaulting a woman and not knowing enough about their own culture to notice that the attire is from their own culture.

    If they don't design these it's as theirs as anything else. I reckon it was just berserk mode made 'useful' by some lecher, because it'd be quite unthinkable to try to one-up Kuomintang in that way.

    This is what happens when Communist can't even tell what there own country has warn in the past many years and they fail to notice what a woman are wearing trational clothing they have so much pride they are blind enough to attack someone in there own traditional clothing this is the result if your isolationism at its best.

    One thing to keep in mind China is anything but a mono culture there are no less then 56 ethnic groups.

    Plus the majority of the population esp those away from the major cites are uneducated.

    Honestly I think its about time humanity gets destroyed... everything is getting so stupid...

    drama over a stupid island... I mean doesn't china already have enough land... and if they are so desperate to reclaim their ancestral lands they should just try and take over all the land that Genghis khan took over even though hes Mongolian in fact why doesn't Mongolia take back china since they have ancestral claim on it too or Taiwan reclaiming china. after all they all have the "right" to get their land back right?

    oh wait even better china, just try and reclaim the western hemisphere since they technically were the first to travel across the ice that was bridging Asia and North America... HA not going happen!

    people back in china puts me to shame... good thing I'm only Chinese by race and not nationality (Chinese American)

    Dumb ass humans need to remember they are only humans and they have no REAL authority to claim any part of the earth as their own. If anything the planet owns humanity and if the planet were conscious and aware of this stupidity I'm sure it would not hesitate to exterminate all humans.

    Chengdu has some right to be mad... although I won't say I agree with their actions. Look up The Battle of Chengdu on Wikipedia.

    Or just watch the movie Death And Glory In Chengdu.

    Oooops~! Friendly Fire!

    Another Chinese Patriotism/Japan Hate at it's finest

    They're so absorbed by it that they can no longer distinguish between their own Chinese culture and Japanese culture.

    *Does the Epicard Double Facepalm*

    It's ironic some of the most similar ideologies or groups of people hate each other..

    Like Islam and Christianity

    This time, East Asians like the Chinese and Japanese.
    Koreans haven't been involved these days, oh well its North against South first.

    Mob mentality. A bunch of (somewhat)intelligent individuals reduced to a bunch of quivering idiots.

    Bloody China holds too much economic potential and power within her hands. China doesn't even need to go to war to win a political battle. No one wants to go up against bloody China and the prospects China can offer. The Government is full of manipulative fu****s who blatantly use their position to dominate other countries.

    Japan and China, the feud between them has lasted a long time since WW2. The atrocities that committed by the Japs during the Japanese Occupation still has not been forgotten, nor forgiven.

    This is why I hate the Chinese pride. I am born in HK born British and is Canadian and hates China main land's ideology and super pride. I know lots of HK people who strictly refers themselves as HK people and not Chinese...and I'm a bit like that too. And boo them they can't even tell that it's their own country's traditional clothes!! Shame on them!!!!!!

    Artefact: you can find more information from the in-groups for Hanfu. Pics too.

    They've made a ZH entry on Wiki too:年成都漢服事件

    As a person researching on the Hanfu movement, this one is certainly brain fodder for exemplifying the ignorance and stupidity of the Chinese. It is not just the young'uns either.

    Ah, I saw this ridiculous piece of news on the papers yesterday, I was like WTF!?

    You do have to wonder what's the REAL motive behind these pathetic Fenqings when they were trying to strip that poor girl semi-naked. I suspect their "passion" comes from their horny "dolphins" rather than simple "blind xenophobic nationalism".

    Seriously, both China and Japan really have some crackpot nationalists that anything they think is different is regarded with hostility, even if that said object or person is actually affiliated with them in many historical ways, like this ancient Chinese robes incident.

    They claim to love their country, yet they fail pathetically in their history 101.

    I'm not surprised about this incident. There was an incident years ago where a Filipino Family (father, mother, son, daughter) were vacationing in China. The father and son decided to have a look around while the mother and daughter were resting at their hotel room. Apparently the father and son were fatally shot by a chinese guy because he thought they were Japanese.

    The main reason Chinese from China mainland hates japanese was because japanese would have conquered them if it wasn't because they angered the Americans and the Americans bombed them... But look the Chinese fought against themselves right after their war with the Japanese ended....that's dumb and china mainland people have invaded and "killed" HK these days!! Taking advantages of Hong Kong!!!! HK was better when it was part of the British colony!!!!
