A video now going viral on iFeng.com shows a white blonde male putting his feet over the seat before him and a Chinese female passenger's head on a train from Shenyang to Beijing. It is not clear what happened before the start of this video, but the woman was clearly irritated by the man's behavior. She stood up, turned around, and hit the man's feet with a magazine, saying "you are a big shame to your country." ("你真给你国家丢人")

However, the foreign man showed no intention to move his feet away and instead called the woman's beating a "a massage."

The woman finally threw her magazine at the man as the man hurled other insults at her, saying she was "Shabi" (傻屄: "silly c*nt").

The train's policeman later arrived and questioned the foreign man. The laowai said there were problems in communicating with the woman and denied that he had uttered any dirty words.

He also told the policeman that he is a cellist working in Beijing, whereupon the policeman expressed mock surprise that he wasn't a ballet dancer instead since he had a penchant for putting his feet where they shouldn't be.
The policeman then left, advising the Chinese passenger to let the whole thing go since "he's an artist".

Life is hard; it's harder if you're stupid.

What’s wrong with these mentally distorted laowai?

The policeman got a sense of humor

As I said elsewhere such behaviour is totally unacceptable in the West as well. As a foreigner it disgusts me to see anyone regardless of skin colour behave in such a manner.  If I'd been there he would have been told in pretty uncertain terms to put his damned feet on the floor or I would have "assisted" him to do it and probably sprained his ankle in the process before giving him some choice words about stupidity that he would absolutely understand.  For the record his English has a very North American sound to it.

It's behavior like this man's that makes all of us as foreigners look bad and poorly regarded by Chinese people or the locals in general whenever we travel abroad. He needs to learn respect, common courtesy, and humility and the overall basic principle of treating people the way you want to be treated. As they say, what goes around comes around and such is the law of karma.
