Chinese social media is overwhelmed by “supporting Huawei” sentiments
Posted On January 30, 2019
Anti-America sentiments have grown fierce on the Chinese social media, especially Weibo. The hashtag “Huawei responds to US accusations” (#华为回应美国指控#) has received 2.98 million views to date. Most users expressed their willingness to stand by Huawei and took a firm stance of not buying Apple and other products designed by the USA. Huawei’s case, along with the detention of its CFO Meng Wanzhou, is widely interpreted in China as American’s intervention against Chinese aggressively advancing technology with American authority using the judicial system in a battle that is actually politically motivated.
