There have been tens of thousands of tweets and micro-blog posts cheering the “Shoe” last weeks shoe event in which the father of the great firewall was pelted with eggs and a shoe.
The Telegraph newspaper in the UK reported that “four students apparently sought out Mr Fang as he gave a talk at the Computer Sciences Department of Wuhan University in central China, pre-arming themselves with eggs purchased for the occasion at a nearby market, according to their own account on Twitter.
They then threw the eggs and a show while he was giving a lecture.
Since then the China Digital Times has translated some of the twitter comments that followed the attack:
Fang Binxing, your mother is calling you to come back home to pick up your shoes!
