The Daily Mail reports a scandal in China, it almost seems too bizarre to be true, it sounds like the plot of a bad horror movie. Apparently, Facebook has been flooded with disturbing pictures from China allegedly sold human flesh as meat in Africa. Amazing!
The story was first distributed through Facebook with pictures of the meat factory where the meat is supposedly produced. There were flayed human bodies in the images that sparked outrage in the social networking site. Besides images, the press in Zambia reported that the information came from first hand, people working in the factory. According to the press, there are two versions as to why China would do something so horrible. The first reason is that China came up with this idea after running out of space to bury the bodies of them and decided to get rid of them in this way. The second version is that they give the meat to countries in Africa poo in order to preserve meat quality for rich countries. However, the Chinese ambassador to Zambia. Yang Iouming, flatly denies these allegations. He says: “rumors tabloid today local spread that the Chinese use human flesh and sold as beef in Africa This is a malicious only slander and is absolutely unacceptable to us hereby express our utmost indignation and condemnation.. an act “such.
goes on to say that this was a deliberate act by people who want to ruin the good relations between Zambia and China.
A user wrote on Facebook revolt:
“The Chinese sell dead human meat instead of beef and sent to Africa Please avoid beef. regardless of the brand, especially in African and African country -Asian markets mixed goods “
the full saga ended soon after the site Snopes.com revealed the true story behind the images and anything so outrageous as we said. They discovered that the photos are part of a marketing campaign for the videogame Resident Evil 6 from 2012. The pictures were taken from corpses flayed while they were filming the commercial in Smithfield Market in London.
Although the information seemed to be faked, Chinese Ambassador to Zambia urged the authorities to conduct a full investigation into the matter and Zambian Deputy Defense Minister apologized on behalf of the country.
