Just because I'm angry enough

I'll post one more time today. I read about this yesterday, but since it's hit the English press, I might as well report it here.

Chinese netizens (known for their lack of reasoning and impulsive widespread actions)are attacking Zhang Ziyi for appearing in a Japanese ad for a shampoo where she displays her naked shoulders and appear to be semi-nude. She damned near showed her breasts to the French in 2046, and they attack her for showing a hell of a lot less in an ad promoting shampoo with the tagline "Asian beauty" (ASIAN, numbnuts, not Japanese beauty).

There's a thin line between fanaticism and patriotism, and these guys just passed through it.

(Edit: Baiting of immature Chinese nationalists deleted.)
