Hello everyone! Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese!

Recently in China, something a celebrity said has caught the attention of many people, even stirred anger. This individual is the internet streamer Li Jiaqi. While selling cosmetics during a live broadcast, a netizen commented that the cosmetics were becoming more expensive. Li Jiaqi responded, “These are not expensive! You think they’re expensive because you haven’t worked hard enough, and your salary hasn’t increased.” After he said this, people became extremely angry. Chinese people have always considered hard work to be important, so why do they disagree with what Li Jiaqi said? Today, let’s discuss it together.

Li Jiaqi is the most famous internet streamer in China. He has over 30 million followers. When he goes live, he often sells products worth over 5 million RMB, sometimes even up to 100 million RMB. Due to his immense influence, many businesses approach him, hoping he’ll promote their products during his live broadcasts. However, this time, Li Jiaqi made a blunder. “Making a blunder” in internet slang means messing up something. On the evening of September 10th, Li Jiaqi was selling a cosmetic product during a live stream. At that moment, a netizen commented that the cosmetics were becoming increasingly expensive. Li Jiaqi, upon hearing this, became angry and said, “Sometimes, you should reflect on yourself. Have you worked diligently over the years? Has your salary not increased?” This statement infuriated many people, and they couldn’t accept what he said. Subsequently, Li Jiaqi lost over a million followers.

Why did everyone get so angry? I believe there are several reasons. First, Li Jiaqi lacked empathy towards the netizens. Empathy means understanding someone else’s feelings. People felt that Li Jiaqi was too arrogant and couldn’t understand the difficulties faced by netizens. Second, in recent years, China’s economy has faced significant pressure. People want higher wages, but the reason they can’t get them isn’t due to a lack of hard work but because of the poor economy. Li Jiaqi, who is already wealthy, couldn’t grasp the difficulties faced by netizens.

Recently, the CEO of an Australian company, Tim Gurner, also made similar remarks: “Workers are too arrogant. Some workers have high wages, but they don’t work enough.” People were also angry. Why do some wealthy people always seem to lack empathy for ordinary people? What are your thoughts? Feel free to leave us comments.
