Yikes! On Wednesday, the Chinese state media confirmed that an image of a restaurant in Shenyang, China, with a banner celebrating coronavirus deaths in the United States is real.
In China, state-run publication The Global Times, has been spreading rumors that the Wuhan virus came from the United States Army. Because of that, there are people in China celebrating the pandemic in the United States. One of those people was a manager at “Mother Yang’s Porridge Restaurant”.
“Celebrating the epidemic in the U.S. and wishing coronavirus a nice trip to Japan,” the large red banner read according to the Global Times' translation.
Conservative Fighters reports:
Other translations note that the Chinese characters also insult Japan as “little” and hope the virus spread “forever after that [arrival into Japan]."
The Times claimed that the business itself profusely apologized on government-run social media and fired the manager that put up the decoration, in addition to police detaining the person. The restaurant claimed owners were not notified or aware of the banner before it went up.
The newspaper identified the manager as a 30-something worker who had been there for some time and claimed that the banner was only up for about 90 minutes before police arrived at the scene. As China does not allow independent media outlets to operate within its borders, there are no independent reports confirming that this was the case. The news service UPI identified the manager as having the last name “Hui,” but not much more is known about the person or his or her fate after being detained by Chinese police.
The banner appeared to celebrate the growing numbers of deaths in both Japan and America.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo criticized Beijing for accusing the US of creating the disease.
“My concern is that this cover-up, this disinformation that the Chinese Communist Party is engaged in, is still denying the world the information it needs so that we can prevent further cases or something like this from recurring again,” Pompeo said. “The disinformation campaign from Russia and Iran as well as China continues. They’re talking about it coming from the U.S. Army, and they’re saying maybe it began in Italy, all things to deflect responsibility.”

What do you think? I call it anti-humanity. Do these kinds of people have the right to protest again "racism"? #CCPVirus pic.twitter.com/N6dODztUI8
