Argentine President Cristina Kirchner angered the population of the tweet, in which he imitated Chinese accent. Not many people understood the joke, some immediately called it racist and offensive.
Cristina Kirchner participated in the Chinese-Argentinean business forum, met with the President of China, and was at the signing of a package of bilateral agreements. She appreciated the course of the visit, something told in social networks, calling this day "special and more than relevant". And yet one of its news on Twitter, in which she parodied Chinese accent, provoked strong criticism in her address.
"More than thousand participants at the event. Are they all from the "Campoli?" - wrote favorite powers. ("Campora" - the Pro-Argentine youth organization, whose members are all global actions of the authorities). "They came here only to get a "Fox" (rice) and oil (original tweet - petloleo, distorted Spanish petroleo).
Subsequent tweet, the President explained: "Sorry. At the moment, so many ridiculous and absurd that everything should be taken with humor." "In other developments these surpluses rather, very toxic," he added favorite powers.
China's foreign Ministry refused to explain suspicious tweet Kirchner. "We don't explain", - said the diplomat Hong lei. In addition, he did not explain how Kirchner could actively use Twitter in China: this service is inaccessible in China. "Each nation its own rules conditionally adjust the Internet. It is also a part of sovereignty," he said, adept Chinese Foreign Ministry RIA Novosti.
But the Western press to behave less cautiously in these circumstances. So, for example, the print edition of the Washington Post called tweet of the President of Argentina racist, but Business Insider is extremely offensive. English "Bi-bi-si" called this entry controversial, and Spanish ABC - Chinese humor Cristina Kirchner.
