• Her photo went viral and received mixed reactions from netizens
Beggars in the streets asking for money or food might just be an ordinary scene in China, but a 30-year-old woman from Lijiang in Yunnan province, China is quite unusual for some reason.
Apparently, this woman is claiming that she was a waitress and cashier before but got fired and turned to begging as last resort, according to a story by Asia One.
She’s now seen holding a board saying, “I’m from Hunan, I’m a natural beauty, able-bodied, and healthy, and I choose to beg here instead of getting a job, thank you to the kind-hearted souls.”
Her photo went viral and received mixed reactions from netizens. While some expressed pity, some said that someone as able and young as her should get a job instead of begging.
