Who would think that a rant would become an Internet meme?
When a Chinese model tweeted that “some little guy” does not want to her to wear “pussy-high miniskirts,” it became an Internet meme in China.
It also helped increase the sales of “pussy high miniskirts” for a major shopping website.
Rui Zhou received a lot of attention on her Weibo post, featuring a photo of herself with a supposed National People’s Congress (NPC) delegate, her sugar daddy, cutting her birthday cake.
Along with the photo, she posted a message that read:
“Thank you for always being in my life. And thank you for squeezing our birthday celebration into your busy NPC schedule. Thank you to calligraphy master Li Min for writing for us: ‘Forever in love and always close.’ Thank you, my friends, for your blessings. I’m so happy to have you all in my life!”
Shortly after netizens read the post, many began a background search on Zhou. That is when they found her tweet on “pussy high miniskirt.”
E-commerce giant Taobao milked the issue by promoting “pussy high miniskirts” with the tag line “A favorite of sugar daddies.”
