hose visiting one hospital in Hebei province on Monday morning were rather taken aback when a LED screen started scrolling out some subversive slogans.
“Supporters of China are stupid cunts. Overthrow Chinese imperialism. Long live Japan,” read the screen above the door for the emergency department of the hospital in Gaoyang county. After learning about the situation, security staff at the hospital attempted to stop people from taking photos of the screen and eventually were forced to pull the power cord.
Later that afternoon, police arrested a local 31-year-old man for writing and broadcasting the slogans. At this time, it’s not clear how he managed to hack, though it doesn’t seem like too difficult a task. Earlier this year, one man was detained for broadcasting porn on a TV screen at a Wuhan Haidilao hot pot restaurant as a “prank.”
