Recently, a 16-year-old boy in Tianjin became obsessed with an online hostess and paid her 1.58 million yuan in 70 days, spending all his parents’ hard-earned money from selling vegetables.
According to CCTV.com, a 16-year-old boy in Tianjin, Xiao Liu, dropped out of school in his second year and his parents put him in charge of collecting money at the wholesale vegetable stall they run at home. Because he is busy making ends meet, his parents rarely ask Liu about his situation.
At night, Xiao Liu, who had nothing to do, was soon attracted to a female anchor on an online platform, interacting and rewarding frequently. The company’s main business is to provide a wide range of products and services to its customers.
Until two or three months later, Xiao Liu’s parents were surprised to find that their son had worked hard to sell vegetables for 1.58 million yuan, all rewarded to the female anchor.
Afterwards, Xiao Liu’s parents repeatedly contacted the live platform, hoping to return the 1.58 million rewarded, but was refused, Xiao Liu’s family therefore took the live platform to court.
On May 12, the Tianjin Third Intermediate Court heard the case. After the court mediation, the live streaming platform finally returned 1.58 million yuan.
The case sparked controversy on Weibo. Some netizens believe that the live-streaming platform should return the reward money because Xiao Liu is a minor and has no discernment. Secondly, the network supervision is still not enough, this kind of children still need parents to supervise more.
However, some netizens believe that this child should be allowed to eat a lesson, and poorly supervised parents should also be taught a lesson. Why some children lost a few hundred dollars to cry in fear, and this child will dare to spend 1.58 million. First, the family has the money to spend. Second, the family is too rich, the parents do not necessarily find the money less. Third, even if they are found will not be killed, nothing to fear. Fourth, know that they are minors and have legal protection.
