Internet Users Turn on Sweden Over TV Show Ridiculing Chinese Tourists
China’s Foreign Ministry has demanded an apology from a Swedish TV program that broadly mocked Chinese tourists, which followed a recent dispute between three Chinese tourists and a Stockholm hostel that initially sparked criticism of the tourists among Chinese internet users.
Swedish state television broadcaster Sveriges Television AB (SVT) has refused to apologize, saying that the satirical nature of the program may have been lost in translation, but acknowledged that a brief video clip from the show that was uploaded to Youku.com could easily be taken out of context.
