Sanya Airport foreinger featured image
These are the worst type of stories. The. Worst. What we have is a foreigner (laowai) and Chinese person arguing at Sanya Airport in Hainan province. (What is it with Sanya?

The Chinese guy, presumably the one filming, posts this nationalistic tripe on Youku (a video that's been viewed 225,000 times in the last 11 hours):

Bloody Sanlitun beating featured image
We've reached out to the guys who shot the video -- Canadians from WorldstarHipHop, as they make abundantly clear in the video -- to see if we can get more info. It's a nasty fight, if one can call it that, with a clear survivor. There are no winners. "Someone pull him off," someone says while the guy who's standing, bloody all over, continues connecting on kicks to the defenseless man on the ground. "It's done, it's done, you've won, you've won," someone else says, beginning to sound desperate.
