Shoes vigilante at Xiamen Airport stirs public debate

 

A Chinese social media user who filmed himself throwing away the shoes of a sleeping barefoot traveller has caused a social media storm.

一名男子"对不文明说不",愤然将机场候机的另一名乘客脱下的鞋子扔掉的视频在中国网上窜红。

The self-made video shows an angry man at an airport in Xiamen, Fujian province picking up the sleeping traveller's shoes and throwing them into a nearby bin.

这段在福建省厦门机场拍摄的视频中,男子愤怒地将一名熟睡中的中年乘客脱下的鞋子扔进了垃圾桶。

"I saw a man lying on the seats with his shoes and socks off," the man says. "What will foreigners think if they see such ill manners – they will wonder about how low Chinese peoples' standards are."

这个年轻人对着镜头说:"我现在在机场候机室,我看到有个人,竟然把鞋袜全部脱掉,整个人躺在候机室的凳子上。外国人看到了会怎么想?他们会认为咱们中国人的素质太LOW了"

Many comments said he "did the right thing" and that the shoeless man was "breaking public order and morals".

许多网友认为他"做对了",认为脱鞋男子"破坏了公共秩序和道德"。

Many said that the shoeless man's behaviour was "uncivilised", but others took an equally dim view of the vlogger, saying that "throwing away someone's belongings is illegal".

不少网友认为,脱鞋男子的行为"不文明"。但也有一些人认为,视频博主"扔掉他人的个人财物是违法的"。

Some accused the vlogger of seeking publicity and trying to "get his name out there."

有人指责视频博主,认为他故意炒作自己。

"Marong" accused him of "grandstanding", asking why he wasn't "able to first talk with the man".

名为"Marong"的网友称,小伙儿的行为"哗众取宠",并质疑他为什么不先跟脱鞋男子谈谈呢?

And "TristaBXGE" asked whether China needs to do more to improve its image which has been tarnished by badly-behaved tourists abroad.

网友"TristaBXGE"认为,中国游客在海外的不文明行为已经拉低了中国的国民素质,中国是否有必要采取行动改善这一状况。

"Why is everything linked to 'overseas?'" she asked. "Is 'improving quality' all for foreigners?"

她问道:"为什么一切都要跟'国外'联系在一起?难道'提高素质'只是为了做给外国人看?"
