CHINESE HAVE STARTED TO PRODUCE CANNED BEEF WITH THEIR DEAD BODIES AND SENDING THEM TO AFRICA
No, we are NOT marinating dead bodies and selling them as canned meat in Africa, says China
Viral Message Verification:- It is not the first time that something like this news have come up on the social media from artificial egg to almost every household items it is said can be manufactured in china.
Indeed this was in news all over the social media and many websites have reported on the authenticity of the news. This is a bizarre hoax claiming the Chinese selling human meat to Africa. The funniest thing about the entire incident is that the images are actually from a 2012 Capcom PR event promoting the game Resident Evil 6, which set up a fake butcher shop with sculptures of supposedly human meat.
A website zambianobserver added in 2017 that “Since China is so overpopulated to a point where there is no space to spit, what do they do with the dead bodies of the Chinese? Well the answer might be that they are shipping the bodies to Africa in the form of canned meat, and they make a profit during the process. Yang Youming, China’s ambassador to Zambia, released a statement saying: “Chinese using human meat to make corned beef and selling it to Africa. This is completely strange but not shocking” he said in a statement.”. There was no such statement from the Chinese ambassador.
The news dates back to May 2016 and The Chinese ambassador to Zambia denied allegations saying China has been marinated dead human bodies as corned beef. African Zambian press was even accused of fuelling the rumours by quoting ‘sources’ from China’s meat factories.
There is a bunch of the sets of the disturbing pictures still can be found on the social media sites.
