Outcry at mainland mother who let son defecate at Taiwan airport
A photo of a mainland toddler defecating in public at an airport in Taiwan has sparked anger and criticism from internet users in Taiwan and China.
The photograph, allegedly taken by a Taiwanese tour guide, was published first on Facebook and then on a Taiwanese news webite earlier this week.
It showed a toddler relieving himself on paper possibly prepared by her mother. A toilet was only a minute's walk away, said the report.
“There aren’t enough public toilets in China and the ones they do have are usually dirty,” commented a Taiwanese blogger, “This might explain mainlanders' poor hygiene habits.”
“This is a typical mainland parent who spoils their children,'’ said a mainland netizen on China's twitter-like Sina Weibo.
"This is so embarassing, " said another mainland blogger.
A photo of a boy relieving himself on a subway train in Guangzhou last year stunned internet users and caused public outcry across China.
