On April 22, in the theme park of Universal Studios Beijing, three children stood in front of Megatron for a group photo. The taller boy suddenly gave Megatron the middle finger.
To this, Megatron replied: “Do you still want this finger?”
Afterward, the boy turned around and gave Megatron a thumbs down, and Megatron immediately “angrily criticized”: “Your mother is still here, you have lost your mother’s face.”
At this time, the boy turned around again and kicked Megatron’s left leg. An employee in blue overalls saw this and tried to stop it.
Megatron said again: “There are too many naughty children, and you are not a good brother at all.” During the period, there were bursts of laughter at the scene.
“Can this kind of behavior be blocked?” “Megatron is right, support.” After the video was uploaded to the Internet, many netizens expressed their views on the boy’s behavior.
In addition, some netizens questioned why parents did not stop their children in time.
On the afternoon of the 22nd, the reporter consulted Universal Studios Beijing on this matter.
The customer service said that they had not received any notification about the matter. They will report the situation to the relevant departments, and staff will reply later.
But as of press time, the reporter has not received a reply.
The reporter noticed that in September 2021, a tourist gave Megatron the middle finger and was reprimanded as a “dirty human being”.
Afterward, a staff member said that “dirty human beings” were said to conform to the character’s setting and did not mean to belittle, and said that there is currently no rule that tourists cannot behave indecently towards anime characters, nor will they be blacklisted. However, if this happens, the on-site staff will stop it in time.
