A 25-year-old Spanish man, identified only as David, will be in police custody for 10 days before being deported for having sex with a Chinese woman in the streets of Chengdu.
In a video clip posted by the Beijing Times, some bystanders can be heard encouraging the couple in Chinese, yelling “Jiāyóu!”, as other locals told them to “take it somewhere else.”
As the pair were being arrested by police, the Chinese woman explains in Mandarin that “we are together,” while the man, who was drunk, expressed ignorance about the situation by saying “I don’t know” in broken English and Chinese.
Watch footage of the incident below:
Chengdu police said on their Weibo page on Saturday that David would be deported back to his home country of Spain after 10 days.
The incident has since gone viral on Chinese social media, with most online netizens backing the decision to deport the man.
“Foreign people like him should be sent back to their home countries,” one user wrote, according to the Global Times.
Others say that the woman should also be punished for her actions.
“She is no less guilty than the foreigner,” another user said.
One netizen on Weibo felt ashamed being from Chengdu, writing, “Those people cheering are all good-for-nothings! That woman has no self-respect and no self-dignity. Those foreigners just think that Chinese women are cheap and they treat them as toys, and this is the reason why! (..) It’s infuriating!”
