As the report is circulating on Chinese social media, netizens think it is hard to believe that such a behavior is done by anyone from China.
“They deserved it. They have been used to ignoring laws at home. The one who knows nothing and fears nothing, doesn’t mean the one is not guilty,” commented a Chinese user of the Tweet-like platform Weibo with the name of @Xianshitiejinmengxiang.
“They just went to the West to feel the so-called freedom of speech. Surprised? Excited?” another Weibo user @Fanhaohuanyu ironically commented.
“Is it a behavior from adults? Especially these persons are from China, a country ravaged by Nazi," said another Weibo comment.
The Reichstag is a powerful symbol in Germany. It was destroyed by fire in 1933 by an arsonist thought to have been paid by the Nazis, who then blamed the blaze on the Communists and used it as an excuse to severely restrict civil liberties.
