Rong Bingshao was planning to do something sensational.
He wanted everyone in the US to know about him, admire him, and see him as a hero.
Coincidentally, a Chinese boxer had angered the Americans by killing a boxing champion from the US.
If Rong Bingshao disguised himself as an American and helped the Americans deal with this person…
Wouldnt that instantly ignite the internet and make the US citizens worship him
Hehe, you sure are unlucky.”
Although they were both Chinese, Rong Bingshao had never treated anyone other than his own family as fellow human beings.
Their lives were not in Rong Bingshaos radar at all.
But Rong Bingshao felt that this was not enough.
Since the conflict had already started, he wanted it to worsen.
He picked up the phone and called Lee Su-ji.
“Su-ji, I think its time for us to start a conflict against the Americans.
Help me create some news about a spate of attacks on Americans living in China.
Not just youths but also the elderly.
Make it as pitiful as possible.
I want to incite the Americans as much as possible.”
Discrimination existed everywhere in the world.
The Chinese had a strong sense of national pride and cases of discrimination against foreigners were not unheard of.
In 2013, 53% of the Chinese surveyed had an unfavorable view of the US.
And in 2018, President Donald Trump launched a trade war against China, further increasing anti-US sentiment in China.
Rong Bingshao wanted this situation to become even more intense.
After a day, there was indeed an endless stream of reports about physical and verbal attacks directed at the US community in China.
American netizens were furious.
Rong Bingshao chose this moment to disguise himself as an 18-year-old American boy and started marketing himself.
He set up new social media accounts under his false identity and released a video.
Im Canine Steele from the US.
Im 18 years old this year, and an ordinary high school graduate.
My alma mater is Trinity High School.
I saw our countrys boxer, Duke Ragan, travel to China to seek justice from Zhang Zhilei.
However, he was mercilessly beaten to death.
Im so angry!
“Ive already arrived in China and issued a challenge to Zhang Zhilei.
Well have a life-and-death battle in the arena at eight oclock tonight.
I want to avenge Duke Ragan.
I want to seek justice for all the Americans who were discriminated against and treated unfairly!
“I want to tell the world that Americans are not to be trifled with.
We are one of the most powerful nations in the world.
Whoever provokes us will have to pay the price!”
It was a short video lasting less than a minute.
After it was released, Rong Bingshao spent over a million dollars to boost his post so that everyone in the world would see it.
The video went viral worldwide within a day.
The American netizens went wild with their comments.
‘Brother, dont be rash.
Youre only 18 years old.
You still have a bright future ahead of you.
Its not worth sacrificing your life for such a scoundrel!
‘Good job, Canine Steele! Youre so brave! Just do it! Well support you!
‘Oh my god, you are just a student who recently graduated from high school, but already so brave and patriotic! Whether you win or lose, youre my hero!
“F*ck, Im also from Trinity High School.
Why havent I seen you before
Rong Bingshao released his video on all the major social platforms across the world.
To openly announce his challenge to Zhang Zhilei!
He also asked his family to call the bosses of all the social media platforms, to make sure that his video was the top trending topic.
Soon, news that a young man from the US was challenging a top boxing champion spread throughout the world.
Eight oclock in the evening, at the Cotai Arena in Macau, China.
This was where Zhang Zhilei killed Duke Ragan.
Today, Rong Bingshao was going to challenge Zhang Zhilei in the boxing arena.
Rong Bingshao put on his disguise as an American teenager and took an ordinary-looking taxi to the entrance of the hotel.
The moment he arrived at the entrance of the hotel, Rong Bingshao was surrounded by reporters from all over the world, as well as a huge crowd of Americans.
Steele, is it true that you want to challenge boxing champion Zhang Zhilei Do you really want to fight him to the death”
“Have you learned martial arts or boxing before Whats your relationship with Duke Ragan, who was killed by Zhang Zhilei There are rumors that youre his illegitimate son.
Whats your explanation”
“Theres a girl who claims to be your ex-girlfriend from Trinity High School.
She is cheering you on.
What do you have to say to your ex-girlfriend”
The reporters surrounded Rong Bingshao.
He was getting a headache from their barrage of questions.
Rong Bingshao finally had a chance to escape when the security guards stopped the reporters.
However, he was blocked by a group of Americans.
A righteous-looking American stood in front of Rong Bingshao.
“Canine Steele, I know youre very angry.
Were as angry as you! We want to tear that b*stard Zhang Zhilei apart! But we have to be rational! Youre just a student who recently graduated from high school.
Youre definitely not a match for a professional boxer!”
Another middle-aged woman tried to persuade him.
“Thats right, little boy.
We all think that youre very impressive to have the courage to challenge a boxing champion.
Thats good enough.
“Your ex-girlfriend, friends and family are all very worried about you.
We dont want to see another US citizen beaten to death!”
Others from the crowd chimed in.
“Boy, go back home!”
Rong Bingshao ignored the reporters because they were mostly foreigners.
However, he still had to pretend to be friendly to his “American compatriots”.
Milking the attention, he put on an act, like he was sacrificing his life for justice.
“My fellow countrymen, my family.
I am just an ordinary US citizen but I came here with no intention of returning! Ive already made peace with life and death.
Even if I have to pay the price of death, I have to tell those who provoked the US that we, Americans, are not pushovers!
“Also, please believe in my strength.
I will defeat Zhang Zhilei and avenge all Americans!”
