Talk about being thirsty….. A woman posted to social media sites under the username ‘Qianjin Yeye’ and gave out her room number as well as her exact address
– the Hilton Hotel in Sanya City’s Haitang Bay in China’s southern Hainan Province.
The short post, which quickly began trending online on March 1, read: ‘Somebody come get me… sex… for free… 6316.’ A video was also shared showing the woman wearing a bikini inside the room hotel. Haitang District police said the woman’s posts on Weibo and WeChat, Chinese social media sites, caused numerous people to turn up at the hotel to knock on her door.
Multiple people also called the front desk asking about the guest in room 6316. Unconfirmed social media rumours claimed some 3,000 people either asked about or showed up at the Hilton in response to the blogger’s offer. A subsequent post on WeChat showed the woman begging for people to ‘stop sharing’ her offer, which she claimed was ‘just a joke’. The hotel called the police, filing an official complaint against the guest, but when Haitang District authorities arrived at the Hilton at 10pm, just two hours after she made her first post, she had already checked out and disappeared. The police statement said she was found at a hotel at Sanya Phoenix International Airport on 2nd March and arrested on prostitution charges and disrupting the Hilton hotel’s business operations. She was jailed for 15 days and fined 500 RMB (57 GBP). Her social media accounts have also been suspended.
