The majority of rural citizens in China believes that high attendance at the funeral will help the departed soul to find a better place in the afterworld, it will be a sign of honor and a chance to show guests a family’s welfare as well. So the most ingenious decided that it would be a good idea to hire strippers for the funeral’s promotion among the masses.
The Ministry of culture claimed that Chinese government had launched a campaign with a lot of severe measures for restricting and discouraging undesirable behavior of some residents. He said that, as a consequence, the control over the rural areas would be tightened and more civilized projects would be set up to fulfill the lack of cultural events on the outskirts and in the villages.
The burial ceremonies are also an occasion to gather together with old friends and the whole relatives, because in the villages almost all people are migrant workers and for a long time they remain far from home. Earlier, performances of traditional opera were popular on such occasions. Sometimes, after the official part of a funeral, followed by an opera, all the guests were just watching a movie.
But during the last half of a year, more and more people that have returned home from their workplaces in the industrial centers complain on social media about embarrassing lewd shows on their relatives’ funerals. They express the highest amazement by the fact that woman hired to play dirges suddenly started to peel off their clothes.
The ministry mentioned the six strippers’ funeral performance in the Hebei province and a trio show not far from Jiangsu. He said that all responsible for these vulgar acts will be strictly punished, because such demonstrations are inadmissible not only in places where children could be present, but by and large.
