Photos revealed Wang, 18, was smoking at a Beijing restaurant on Monday night. It is forbidden to smoke indoors according to municipal regulations on tobacco control.

Wang carries wide influence as a youth icon, and his violation of regulations has triggered heated discussion online.

The star apologized for the potential negative influence from his misbehavior via his official Weibo account on Tuesday, promising better behavior in the future.

The Beijing Center of Health Supervision warned punishment would follow if they can confirm these violations, adding the matter has been under investigation in a post released on its official Sina Weibo account on Tuesday.

Based on these regulations, individuals who smoke indoors are fined 50 yuan ($7.20), which rises to 200 yuan if the culprits refuse to correct their violations. In 2016, another famous actor, Wen Zhang, was fined 50 yuan for smoking inside a restaurant.

I have observed the same in other places in China from where you are!  Yes, the staircase, mall toilet cubicles, just the right refuges for smokers, out of sight.  Whenever I caught them smoking outside the cublicles, I warned them to stub it out and they always complied, but throwing butts into the urinal or the wash basin choking them up, is just as bad, lesser of two evils, no foul cigarette smell, but a choked up urinal, overflowing with urine!

"as soon as they exit the subway, and use the escalator they light up polluting everyone behind."

I have been at the receiving end of these irresponsible smokers too!  But unlike the locals on the same escalator, I always shouted out at them to stub it out, and they did, throwing the lighted butst right out of the escalator, which is  just as bad, not only littering, but could even start a fire if it landed on combustible materials like carpets!!
