A man in China has sued an actress for staring at him with her big eyes through the TV screen, claiming she has caused him “spiritual damage”.
According to China Daily, this guy filed the lawsuit against Chinese actress Zhao Wei in the People’s Court of Shanghai Pudong New District, and it’s caused quite the splash online.
Users on China’s biggest micro-blogging platform Sina Weibo were quick to mock the blatant absurdity of the court case.
“Is the guy insane? What’s wrong if an actress has big eyes?” questioned one social media user.
“This kind of weird lawsuit should be condemned; it is a waste of time for court,” said another.
There’s no word yet on how successful this bloke’s case has been but we’re not sure we fancy his chances, to be honest. Fair play for trying though, mate.
