Chinese Father Faces 'Social Boycott' After Dropping Son Off At School In Ferrari

October 10, 2018


A wealthy Chinese property developer and father is facing a 'social boycott' by teachers and other students' parents after dropping his son off for school in his $350,000+ Ferrari 488GTB, which some viewed as 'an excessive show of wealth.' Well at least he didn't opt for a private helicopter.

The chat records on the messaging app WeChat's class group show that Li had been informed about some parents complaining about it. The teacher said it would lead to unhealthy environment in class that was not conducive to developing fellowship among kids.

The teacher of the class backed by many parents demanded Li to use a more modest car to drop his kid to school. "It's not proper. You should not show off, no matter how rich you are," said one parent. "If it's just dropping the kid at school, can't you just use a regular car?" another commented. "You are not short of money anyway." However, Li refused to back down, saying he had worked hard to earn the money and his kid deserves the very best. "If [seeing others] driving a racing car hurts feelings, your children are too sensitive," he wrote. "Besides, why should I buy another car just to serve your needs?" Li was soon removed from the chat group.

Ahahahahaha -- they removed him from the teacher/parents group chat! Man, that's probably the best thing that could have ever happened to him. I don't even like participating in group chats with my friends, could you imagine one with your kid's teacher and a bunch of other parents? That sounds like a nightmare. Fingers crossed this man has enough sense to drop his kid off in a monster truck next.

Thanks to v, for reminding how my dad would only slow down to ~15MPH to drop me off for school so the engine wouldn't stall.

    Looks like Communism is starting to rear its ugly head again

    Even China has fallen victim to this garbage? Tiger moms my ass. *sigh*

  • GeneralDisorder

    Jesus... I think that sound we all just heard was Ferrari banning sale of Ferrari in all of China... "You should not show off, no matter how rich you are"

    Alright, China. You're blacklisted!

    I can imagine him at home, once he is ostracized

  • Bling Nye

    Sounds like dumbasses all around.

  • DudeAbiding

    Therein lies the root of all liberal discourse. They are jealous of other people's possessions and want to have the same without working for them.

    like rainbow fish

  • captaindash

    It's not that they necessarily want the same, it's just that they don't want YOU to have it.

    If they don't want him to drop off his son in that car, they should just put speed bumps in the drop-off lane. It doesn't look like it would handle them well. (I don't actually know that, it just looks awful low.)

    Most of these modern supercars can lift themselves for speedbumps.

  • Ez

    I don't know, this speed bump doesn't seem very big but it seems like these cars all have to really maneuver to get over it.

    One lib might say "Do you know how many families that money could have fed?" ...
    Yeah! I do!... It fed the designers, welders, molders, glaziers, riveters, mechanics, electrical guys, 100s of assemblers, fuel manufactures and many many more families that probably really totals over 8000 families at least.

    Nice car Li! Maybe you should now buy a separate exotic car for every school day.

  • captaindash

    Haha, I like that. The Feelings crowd forgets about the collateral damage to their outrage. Ferraris are hand made, unlike the robot made Toyotas. I thought they'd appreciate that.

    He should buy a 2nd car and leave it parked in front of the school 24/7.

  • lushkneebumbuild

    lol triggered. buying a 2nd car for the sole purpose of dropping his son off is an even bigger show of wealth idiots

  • Closet Nerd

    He should add a pair of testicles to the rear hitch....

  • Mark

    So he's supposed to buy a car that is to be used just for driving his kid to school...then he goes home and gets in his Ferrari to go to work? yeah, that sounds logical. :-|

    Screw that...I know that if I was in school still I would think its pretty neat that one of my classmates has a Ferrari drop him off.

    We can blame this complaint on the special needs parents that have grown up in the "everybody gets a trophy" age.

    I thought China is a communist country where wealth is supposed to be distributed evenly?

  • Alfredo Barral

    Sure, because communism actually works the way it is intended...

  • lushkneebumbuild

    some chinese are more even than others.
    even at the start the party leaders were the new 1%
