The Communist Chinese government has requested Ito-Yokado to provide 1 million face masks to China. In the meantime, a social media campaign was initiated to create the impression that the Japanese retailer offered the masks as a gift for free.
Ito-Yokado was subject to such public opinion pressure. The company clarified that it had never agreed to provide the masks as a gift for free. When it received the request, it simply thought that China will pay.
Because of emergency, Ito-Yokado relaxed the payment policy: it provided the masks first and would accept payment later. Who knows the Communist Chinese government side suddenly said that these products were gifts.
Ito-Yokado is caught in an embarrassing situation now and it can only promise to do its best to help victims in stricken areas.
The Communist Party of China, how amazing!
