The popularity of “Second Uncle” has not subsided. “Three Uncle” video reproduction has a worse fate | Social Injustice in China | NTDTV Online

[NTDTV, Beijing time, July 29, 2022]The video of “Second Uncle”, a disabled person in the countryside, sparked discussions about social injustice in China. The publisher of the video said he was disturbed and had transferred “Second Uncle”, hoping that everyone would forget him. However, the popularity of “Second Uncle” has not disappeared, and the video of “Third Uncle” has been reported on the Internet, and the fate is even more tragic.

Recently, under the environment of China‘s strict censorship, the video of “Second Uncle” has unexpectedly become popular. It not only ranks among the best in the hot list of station B, but also has been affirmed and recommended by the official media and other official mouthpieces.

However, netizens quickly discovered that the official media Xinhua News Agency ranked first in the “creative team” of the video, not the “nephew” (actor) “Yigo Conjecture”. Screenshots of netizens show that Xinhua News Agency is identified as the “UP master”, while “Yige Guess” is just a “participant”.

Across China, tragic stories like “Second Uncle” are endless.

An article on the Internet asks “who is responsible for the second uncle’s suffering”: “What we need to think about is, who caused the second uncle’s suffering? When he took root, and even had no choice but to accept it, who was praising this kind of acceptance? Second Uncle’s video is not a national cure, but more like a national anesthesia.”

On the eve of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, public grievances and crises erupted in Chinese society. The explosion of real estate has detonated the “loan suspension” of unfinished housing; the explosion of village and town banks has triggered large-scale rights protection of depositors; the Tangshan beating case, the authorities suppressed public opinion and caused public anger; the continuous epidemic clearance and control measures have led to people’s work and life difficulties; Forcing the elderly to take domestic vaccines, accidents occur frequently, triggering a rebound in public opinion.

The article said, “The life problems faced by the second uncle and ordinary people are still unresolved… These problems are not much different from the problems of the second uncle back then. How is a person’s life opportunities controlled and shaped?”

Some netizens pointed out that putting the second uncle in the United States also has gains and losses. Gain means there is a basic guarantee, and loss means there is no way to become an internet celebrity.
