hina’s fashion police have struck once again, detaining a young camgirl for her choice of wardrobe.
Last month, the woman posted clips onto the short video app Kuaishou of herself catching fish and eels in muddy streams with her bare hands while dressed in various outfits. In one clip that caught the attention of the authorities, she is wearing a red scarf and white miniskirt.
The scarf is one that is traditionally worn by the Young Pioneers of China, a patriotic youth organization for kids between the ages of 6 and 14 that is run by the Communist Youth League. The color of the scarves symbolizes the blood of China’s revolutionary martyrs and therefore is mandated to be worn with reverence.
In a statement released on Monday, police in Sichuan’s Rong county declared that the woman, surnamed Tang, had instead “defiled” what the scarf symbolizes by also wearing “revealing” clothing at the same time in order to entice viewers to her channel. The video of her catching eels out in the fields evidently managed to accumulate more than 3 million views before it was deleted along with her profile.
Police added that Tang had detained for 12 days and fined 1,000 yuan ($150) for violating China’s law against defaming national heroes and martyrs.
She is not the first to run into problems for wearing the neckerchief without proper reverence. Last year, a Shanghai-based company selling male sex products was hit with a whopping 1 million ($150,000) fine for dressing iconic Japanese AV star Sora Aoi in a red scarf at a charity event.
