Blow Up Sex Dolls Hung On Building Site In Protest

Blow Up Sex Dolls Hung On Building Site In Protest

Furious protesters plastered a building site with blow-up sex dolls after being told by developers they would not make a single penny on their investment.

Baffled builders turned up to find the construction site in Wenzhou, a city in eastern China's Zhejiang province, surrounded by police who had been called out by passers-by.

"They had mistaken the dolls for people who were trying to commit suicide. It took some time to sort out," said police spokesman Ye Tan.

The row blew up when investors in a block of luxury flats were told their 80,000 GBP-a-head investment in the project was now worthless.

Angry investor Xei Lian, 42 - who organised the protest - said: "If they behave like whores they can look like them too.

"We wanted them to see exactly what decent people think of them."

Investors were originally told they would each get an apartment in the block for their investment.

Speaking to local media, Xei said: "They then told us all the flats had been sold but they had made a loss so we would get nothing.

"They are worse than prostitutes really - at least with them you get something for your money."

Police spokesman Ye Tan said: "The dolls were removed from the building and destroyed and then the protesters were moved on."
