Sex, drugs, and money collide as Guo Meimei and fuerdai friends have online pissing contest

This story has everything: sex parties, supercar clubs, a few billion yuan, the Red Cross, and China's wild wealth inequality. It begins on April 7, the Shanghai Daily published an article detailing rumors of sex and drug parties that took place during a Hainan yacht show in Sanya.

The Hainan meet-up involved a plethora of China's nouveau riche, who use the rendezvous to shop for yachts and jets, and who apparently also hold massive pay-to-enter orgies. The report detailed prostitution and a lot of sex, saying, "one model earned 600,000 yuan (US$97,000) from sex parties over three evenings" and "more than 2,000 condoms were used at just one party." And the story only gets more salacious from there.

Enter Guo Meimei (real name Guo Yue Er), the "bratty rich 20-year-old mini-blogger" whose Weibo wealth-flaunting caused a massive scandal for the Chinese Red Cross in 2011, and was linked to a Beijing blood shortage in the months that followed. Ever the class act, Guo was implicated in the Sanya prostitution scandal by a member of the "China Sport's Car Club" (a group of super-rich who get together to show off their "Porche 911 or above" rides). The club member, identified on Weibo as Chen Junyu, accused Guo of trading sex for money in Sanya. Guo replied, full of restraint and tact, with these photos (via Offbeat China):

In an attempt to stifle accusations, Guo Meimei posted a photo to Weibo of 10 casino chips worth a total of 5 million yuan, saying she was "too rich to need to sell sex." In response, Chen Junyu (who is rumored to be 19-years-old) forgot that the scandal was about prostitution, and just decided to out-wealthy Guo by posting a screenshot of his bank account with 3.7 billion yuan:

At this point, the feud ceased to be about the Sanya scandal, and became about China's massive wealth inequality as embodied by the fuerdai ("second generation rich" or nouveau riche). Non-super-wealthy netizens got involved in the conflict, which was seen (accurately) as an obscene pissing contest between a handful of rich twats.

Notable Weibo comments include:

"I'm not surprised hearing something like this, but it is really quite disgusting for a bunch of rich, bored fuerdai to show-off their fancy lives like this."

"By my current income, I can become a SCC [Sport's Car Club] member in 1000 years."

"Socialism my ass."

China's super-wealthy, with their snow-polo, supercars, and casino millions, represent a bizarre alternative universe unfamiliar to the other 99 percent of the population.

The fuerdai, embodied by such wonderful public personas as Guo Meimei and Chen Junyu, are (rightly) seen as spoiled, obscene, idiotic hate-receptacles for the rest of the country. Scandals like this one, which could be summarized as "Yacht-and-jet-buying-par ty hit by sex scandal and followed by rich-kids being shitheads in public" are certainly not helping matters.

China Red Cross debate Debate over the RCSC's role has reignited following the recent earthquake in Sichuan

Media are continuing to report on controversy surrounding the beleaguered Red Cross Society of China (RCSC).

A series of corruption and mismanagement scandals have hit public faith in this government-run charity, with the Ya'an earthquake further igniting debate over its role.

Many newspapers have cited a Southern Metropolis Daily report saying a group of artists have pressed the RCSC for accountability over 80m yuan ($13m,£8.3m) in funds it raised by auctioning work they donated after the Sichuan earthquake in 2008.

The Oriental Daily News carries a commentary entitled "New scandals revealed daily about the RCSC; too many hearts of the Chinese have been broken".

It says corruption in society reflects the ecology of China's officialdom, in view of the charity's nature as a "government organised non-governmental organisation".

The Southern Metropolis Daily says the charity should withstand tests, such as the "inexplicably lost" 80m yuan. Now was the time for RCSC to make a determined effort, the paper said.

But the RCSC has denied media reports that it is planning to reopen an investigation into the "Guo Meimei Affair," a scandal that hit the charity's credibility two years ago, according to Global Times.

Secretary-General of RCSC Wang Rupeng was quoted as saying that the charity will "welcome and co-operate" with any investigation launched by the independent committee established to oversee the organisation.
