While the joke on selling kidneys for buying an iPhone 7 is still doing the rounds on Indian social media, meet the guy who bought eight iPhone 7 phones just for his dog, not even for himself. The guy Wang Sicong is the son of China’s billionaire Wang Jianlin whose estimated net worth is $30 billion.
Coco, the Alaskan malamute, is probably the luckiest dog in the world right now! Its picture posing with the phones was shared on its verified Weibo account (yes, the dog has a Weibo account).
“I don’t understand all the show-off posts on (social media) What’s the point? Don’t make me do it?” read the caption with photo, reports CNN.
Just FYI, a single iPhone 7 in China costs 7,988 Yuan (Rs 80,000 approx) and this dog owns eight!
And this is not even the first time the dog has been treated with expensive gifts. It made news in 2015 when Wang gifted the dog two apple watches and shared the pictures on social media which then attracted massive outrage for useless display of his wealth. Back then the watches cost him (Rs 24,79,000 approx)
The criticism against him forced his father to blame his obnoxious behaviour on his “western schooling”.
Surprisingly, people in China had queued to get their hands on the phone and this guy managed to buy eight phones for his dog on the very same day.
