Recently, a female star (Zhou Zi’yu) from Taiwan who develops her career in South Korea right now was asked to apologize in public. That’s because she was holding KMT party flag in her MV, which made some people feel uncomfortable. The event also caused a fierce debate between netizens those from Mainland China and Taiwan.


但是从这场网络大战来看,中国网民们有一种特殊的吵架方法,他们不动手、不动口,他们用表情包!

 From this group scuffle, we can see  apparently that Chinese netizens have mastered a special skill to quarrel—no tongue, no fists, but Emoticon Packets!

(The emoticon above says: I find it very difficult to communicate with you considering your knowledge.)


无论别人说什么,机智的网民都能找到“合适”的表情回应,让人哭笑不得。

No matter what the other said, tactful netizens could always reply with appropriate emoticons, which made people find it both funny and annoying.

(The emoticon above says: What are you talking about? I can't hear you.)


现在的中国网民们都喜欢在聊天时用表情图片开开玩笑,但像这样大量使用表情包来评论和回复,却是第一次,这也成为现在社交网络上的很大看点:
