The report also stated that the content of the online video insulting the Chinese was fabricated by Yang XX and that Yang XX was fined 500 yuan.
The matter caused heated discussion on the mainland Internet, but the police did not immediately investigate the incident. It was not until 2 days after the incident that the official WeChat account of the Jinjiang Branch announced that it would investigate in the early morning of June 27. A notice was distributed at 4:59 pm on the 27th, saying that it was closed. At about 11 o’clock in the morning on June 27, the three foreign men have been blocked one after another.
Since the official did not release the details, it also used a less common word “blocked” on the Internet to describe the measures taken by foreign men. A large number of netizens asked: “What do you mean by’blocking’ in the text?” “Catch it after blocking it?” “Just want to know what action the Chengdu police did to “block and catch” foreigners?” “Do you think Chinese people were captured? Foreigners? Said it was blocked?”
According to Baidu’s “blocking” entry, the term means “blocking escape and successfully captured” or “stopped and captured”.
Many netizens also pointed out that the incident occurred because foreign men harassed Chinese women. Some netizens said: “Hehe, I only caught people in two days. If they are Chinese, they will be caught in two hours.”
In addition, according to Internet surveillance video, a foreign man in a white shirt standing at the dining table first grabbed the collar of the man who was eating at the dining table. Then another foreign man in a black shirt who was sitting at the dining table stood up and suspected to persuade, but then the foreign man in the black shirt pointed directly at the Chinese woman next to the Chinese man. Then, the foreign man and the Chinese man in the black shirt pointed at each other with their fingers. The other’s nose.
Then, the situation was fierce. The foreign man in the black shirt took the hand of the Chinese man and made a beating (but not). The foreign man in the white shirt and another foreign man wearing a white hat began to beat the Chinese man. The three then beat the Chinese man together.
