A VLOGGER who shocked Chinese social media with a broadcast of her sexual act with a live eel in 2017 has been jailed one year and nine months for the obscenity.
Known by her nickname Qiqi, she was also fined 50,000 yuan (RM30,000) by the Zhuji People’s Court in Zhejiang, reported China Press and Oriental Daily.
During an interview two years ago, Qiqi, 28, said she was keen on making a fast buck by hosting her own live shows online.
She decided to go “extreme” by offering pornographic content. She pocketed 91,000 yuan (RM55,000) in just two months.
In March 2017, Qiqi set up a “VIP channel” after getting a request from a man that she should perform with an eel.
The two-minute broadcast was eventually widely shared on social media.
Riding on her overnight fame, Qiqi went on to use an illegal Chinese streaming platform called “Tiger” and continued broadcasting pornographic content, including her love-making with her boyfriend.
Local police arrested her in May that year.
> China Press reported that a woman splashed a drink on her blind date after he requested that they go Dutch when she invited her friends over for lunch.
The woman known only as Shu met despatch worker Wang, 29, for lunch in Hubei, China last Tuesday.
Halfway into their steamboat meal, Shu got a call from her friends. She told them to join her, without asking Wang if it was okay.
The women apparently kept chatting and ignoring Wang at the lunch table.
When it was time to settle the bill, Wang requested they pay separately. This irked Shu, who felt Wang was being calculative.
Shu grabbed a glass of tea and splashed it onto Wang’s face.
The restaurant manager managed to convince them to split the bill.

Guizhou province has banned burials since late last year.
