The son of a Chinese billionaire bought his dog eight iPhone 7s
But one iPhone user didn’t have to worry: Coco the Alaskan malamute.
Coco’s owner Wang Sicong, son of Chinese billionaire Wang Jianlin (estimated worth $30 billion), bought her eight iPhone 7 handsets on the day of their release, according to photos posted on the dog’s verified Weibo social media account — China’s equivalent of Twitter.
Last year, the official Xinhua news agency published a blistering commentary about Wang accusing him of having “stained the purity of the Chinese (people)” and warning others not to copy the “arrogant and coarse celebrity.”
That came after Wang created a furore by saying the only characteristic he looked for in potential girlfriends was the size of their breasts, causing Xinhua to accuse him of having “Berlusconi-style arrogance.”
