The Daily Mail reported a scandal in China that seems almost too bizarre than true. In fact, Facebook has been flooded with disturbing photos from China of human flesh allegedly sold as meat in Africa!
The story was first distributed via Facebook with pictures of the factory where the meat was produced. There were human bodies skinned on the images that elicited outrage on social media sites. In addition to the photos, the press in Zambia indicated that the information came from people who work in the factory. According to the press, there are two versions for which China would do something so horrible. The first reason is that China came up with this idea after running the space to bury their bodies and decided to get rid of them that way. The second version is that it gives this meat to the poor countries of Africa in order to preserve the good quality meat for the rich countries. However, the Chinese ambassador to Zambia,
Mr Yang Youming strongly denied these allegations. He says :
“Spreading rumors that Chinese people are using human flesh and selling it as beef in Africa is just a malign slander. It is absolutely unacceptable to us. We express our greatest indignation and condemnation on such an act. ”
He goes on to say that all this was a deliberate act on the part of people who want to ruin the good relations between Zambia and China.
A Facebook user wrote in the revolt:
“The Chinese people sell the flesh of dead humans instead of beef and send it to Africa. Please avoid beef regardless of the brand, especially in the markets of Africa from Asia ”
After, the site Snopes.com has revealed the true story behind the images and there is nothing outrageous. He discovered that the photos are part of a marketing campaign for the video game “Resident Evil 6” from 2012. Even though the information seems to be rigged, the Chinese ambassador to Zambia urged the authorities to conduct a full investigation into the matter. Similarly, the Zambian Deputy Minister of Defense apologized on behalf of the country.
