What does a dangerous dispute with six countries fighting over the South China Sea look like? On Wednesday, the Permanent Court of Arbitration chose the Philippines over China in their ferocious battle over the South China sea. Inevitably, the Chinese government did not accept the ruling.
This sparked a frenzy on the internet in China, quantifiable to 124,000 retweets, according to The Wall Street Journal. It doesn't stop at that: citizens are now smashing their iPhones and boycotting mangoes from the Philippines, according to Chinese lifestyle weblog Shangaiist.
The video clip above captures the general reaction on the Chinese internet to the ruling, which is: "To Chinese people, the South China Sea ruling is just a piece of paper. They can take it and throw it directly in the trash."
This one on the other hand has them say "Who cares?" one day before the results came out.
