A wealthy businessman recently became an Internet sensation, sending Chinese social media crazy with the gifts he presented to his former classmates.
Mr. Qian Fenglei, who’s currently the chairman at Universal International Holdings Ltd In Hong Kong, attended a class reunion at his former middle school and presented each and every one of his ex-classmates with a personalized iPhone 6. The smartphones were engraved with the phrase “Class of 1992, Maoshan Middle School” and those present at the reunion received them even before the iPhone 6’s official launch in China. However, the generous businessman’s deeds were widely criticized.
Many people expressed their convictions that Fenglei did this out of need for fame and praise and not so much out of the goodness of his heart.
