A photo posted online by a Weibo user named "Kongyouwuyi" shows several Chinese characters crookedly written on delicate sandstone on the east bank of the Nile River in Egypt, which has a history of more than 3,000 years. The photo has been forwarded more than 90,000 times and triggered public outrage. The boy "Ding Jinhao" quickly became one of the hottest topics on Weibo.

(@Kongyouwuyi posted the microblog on Weibo.com, which was reposted 96,649 times up to now and with 18,349 comments.)

"The sentence means Ding Jinhao has visited this place. This was the saddest and most shameful moment I had in Egypt. I apologized to our local tour guide, who comforted me instead, saying this was not our fault, and that it should be the local guide's responsibility to stop such behavior," Kongyouwuyi said on his post.

A human flesh search showed that Ding is a 15-year-old middle school student in Nanjing, East China's Jiangsu Province.

The exposed information included the boy's name, date of birth, and even primary school. This resulted in the school's website being hacked on Sunday. Visitors to the school website were forced to click on a message box which said "Ding has visited this place" before entering the website, according to the Beijing News, but the site can no longer be accessed.

Ding's parents contacted local media Saturday, apologizing for their son, admitting that they hadn't properly educated their child and pleaded for society to give him a chance.

"The boy has known about it since Friday and cried all night. He has had to be moved around because reporters rushed to their house for interviews," Modern Express reporter Li Shaofu, the only reporter to have direct contact with the parents, told the Global Times. The parents are now refusing to talk to the media.

The mother said her son was still very young at that time.

"The kid has a good academic record, but is a little introverted. This is too much pressure for him to take," the father said, asking the public not to bother his son's studies or life.

What should we do? Should we give Ding Jinhao a Chance, then? ? Leave your comment on this topic, let's discuss!

This case reflects failure of Chinese school education and social education. And in China, we often turn a blind eye to this kind of behaviour because it is common in most places of interest. Building a society with rule of law is indeed urgent.

I am often inclined to believe that there is a "stupidity" competition going on in China. When somebody does something to disgrace the country, the rest of the population seem go to great pains to devise an act of even greater stupidity and abhorrence.

Chinese tourists - They've been getting some attention recently for public defecation, stealing things from planes, fighting with flight attendants, and various other unsavoury/unethical acts. In some countries they are segregated from other tourists because of their disgusting behaviour (or "cultural differences" as we might call it).

Letting your kid shit in an aeroplane aisle is one thing. Prominently and permanently carving "I was here" on a 3000 year old Egyptian temple is another.

A Chinese tourist literally and permanently etches the disgraceful reputation of Chinese tourists in stone.

In the spirit of competition - If you were a Chinese tourist, how would you top that?

No, we forgave too many times with the excuse that he's a kid. He is 16 and did such a thing to the historic relics, which is a strong proof that he's never corrected in his previous life. Never indulge one's misbehavior. Or it will escalate to something more vicious in later life.
Ding is the most adequate example.

No, nobody could outdo that. The only thing that would top that is breaking one of the ten commandments one of the more serioius one's if you know what I mean and no I won't say it directly! So stop asking!!

What's funny is the one who apologize is not him, but his parent, who is over protecting.

I said what a failure of family education!

Typical nouveau riche behavior. Wouldn't say that all Chinese people are like this, but they have literally millions of this kind of people.
