According to Dongguan Times, last week a mainland child peed on street while traveling with her parents in Hong Kong, causing a fight between the parents and local residents.

The girl was about two years old. Video shot by passers-by showed that the girl’s parents quarreled with a man carrying a camera and another man in white shirt while the girl kept crying.

“There’s a long queue out of the toilet and my child wants to pee so badly, what should I do?” the child’s mother repeated in strong emotion.

Famous Hong Kong based journalist Lvqiu Luwei posted on her Weibo this morning that “The video showed only the latter half of the whole thing. (The first half is) the child peed on the street and then her father tried to snatch away pedestrian’s camera and memory stick while they took photos of the girl. The mother slapped a local’s face in the quarrel. The man in the white shirt in the video called the police and stopped the couple from leaving. He got hit by the baby carriage and then the quarrel was aggravated. After the police investigated on the ground, the father of the child was let go, while the mother was arrested for alleged assault. The mother was granted bail, but has to return to the police station for registration in mid-May. ”

Lvqiu’s weibo has been commented and forwarded for over 35,000 times till 10 in the morning, among which many were critics that Lvqiu had a preference for Hong Kong residents.

One main point that the weibo bloggers made was that Lvqiu concealed details that the couple did bring their child in the queue and the mother laid a paper diaper below while the girl peed.

Net citizens also blamed that Lvqiu violated privacy of the girl by forwarding clear photos of her private part. They required an apology from Lvqiu for misguiding public opinions.

Till this moment, there isn’t any response from Lvqiu.
