I suppose people had the right to be slightly offended by it, but as usual the reaction was way over the top I thought. Half of the hysteria probably came from the resentful keyboard warriors living with their mothers who could never afford to buy it anyway.

 

In a couple of months though nobody will remember they got butthurt and they'll be bragging about  the overpriced crap they just bought again.

haha,,, Stiggs got it right. Kids are out buying the knockoff D&G as we speak. Nobody remembers, or gives a flip about, those insults or whatever you call them,,,, they just know they want that fancy label. D&G ought to be a bit more worried that 99% of the junk sold over here with their trademark on it is counterfeit anyway.

Who buys D&G? People who can't afford Chanel! haha. Tongue :p

Its all part of uncles plan to use the 'sick man of asia' stereotype to bolster his approval.

Strong, cohesive societies are open to self ridicule, and external ridicule.

This reminds me of the video of the Chinese dude squirming on a Sweedish pavement.

The Chinese defense of that twat did not show China in a good light, not does their state sponsored offense at D&G.

Of course, D&G are twats too.

China needs to grow up. It needs to learn to take as well as give.

China needs a sense of humour.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
