Police officers in Harbin stopped a fight at an intersection, after three men got out of their car, and attacked three women crossing the road who they thought were: “Too ugly to jaywalk!”
The men were quoted as saying that if the women had been pretty, they wouldn’t have minded waiting for them to cross. But they took exception to the minor offense, because they didn’t like how the girls looked, Sina News reported.
Bloggers joked about the story, and some girls said that from now on they would have to cover their faces while crossing the road. Many female netizens uploaded their photos online, asking whether they should walk across the street slowly or quickly.
