Because of a photo, the French luxury brand Dior, known for its exquisite handbags and charming perfume, annoyed many Chinese netizens, and was even accused of “humiliating China” by many people.

The controversial photo originated from the “Dior and Art” art exhibition held by Dior in Shanghai earlier this month. The exhibition contains a photograph taken by Chinese photographer Chen Man. The photo shows a man wearing traditional clothes and holding a Dior bag. An Asian woman, she bowed her head slightly, showing evil eyes.
