Hello everyone! Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese!
A few years ago, a type of videos called Chibo（Mukbang） became popular(go red). Because red is the lucky color in Chinese culture, ‘go red’ means suddenly becoming popular, especially online. Chibo（Mukbang） is a kind of food videos. In the video, someone will be eating food. Perhaps because watching other people eat delicious food, we will also feel very satisfied, Chibo（Mukbang）videos are especially popular. However, recently, a Chinese Chibo（Mukbang） vlogger was sent to prison. What exactly did she do? Let's talk about it today.
Some time ago, there was a Chibo（Mukbang）that caught people's eyes. 大跌眼镜, it is a colloquial expression in Chinese. It means one thing is so surprising that people's glasses fall off. For example, you can say: "This celebrity usually looks very polite. I can’t believe that he often curses people, which is jaw-dropping." In short, there was a Chibo（Mukbang）video that is surprising. In addition to that, this eating and Chibo（Mukbang）video also made people feel very uncomfortable. In the video, there was a very beautiful lady who bought a shark from somewhere. She grilled the shark very roughly, and sprinkled a lot of chili powder on it. In the end, she actually held the shark and devoured it. In some ways, this video was a hype, and it was very eye-catching. 炒作 means to do something very exaggerated to attract people's attention. 博人眼球 means to attract people's attention. However, the hype this time did not work out well for her. Chinese Internet users suspected that she was eating a great white shark, a second-class protected animal in China. According to the law, people cannot buy or sell secondary protected animals, let alone eat them. Later, unsurprisingly, the lady was investigated, and it came out that she did buy and eat a great white shark. Because of that, she was sent to prison.
In the past, she also ate many animals, such as crocodiles, peacocks, ostriches and other large animals. Many people watched her videos because of curiosity. 猎奇 means to be curious about some strange things, or just some strange things. For example, some Internet users like to watch beautiful women eat large animals because of their curiosity. The lady may have got a lot of followers and made a lot of money because of these 猎奇 videos. This time, however, she failed completely and was sent to prison because of the videos. Why? I think, maybe when she was shooting a video, she just wanted to catch people's attention, and slowly forgot the bottom line. Bottom line, it means something that people absolutely cannot accept. For example, the nationally protected animals is the bottom line of the law, and the lady was also sent to prison because she stepped on this bottom line.
