- A Chinese man was seen eating a “human baby soup” to allegedly “improve” his health
- The post showed that the Chinese man was sitting and having the soup with a stillborn baby in it
- However, it has been reported that the claim is fake and it was just misleading the people
- The Chinese man in the photo has said that it was all “fake” and it just a performance piece
An article online has been circulating on social media after claiming that a Chinese man was eating a “human baby soup.”
However, KAMI learned that the claim was fake and misleading the people.
In a report by Rappler, the article also mentioned that the Chinese man was having the soup to “improve health” and “boost sexual performance.”
The post was published by a site b4blaze.in.
“A town in the southern province of Canton (Guangdong) is now in focus. Chinese folks there are enjoying baby herbal soup to increase overall health and stamina and the power of sexual performance in particular,” it read in the article.
“It is a delicacy whereby expensive herbs are added to boil the baby with chicken meat for eight hours,” it added.
Rappler reported that the photos were from a performance art show by Chinese artist Zhu Yu way back 2000.
According to BBC, the performance was titled Eating People and it was originally shown at the Third Shanghai Biennale in China.
Documentary company ZCZ Films said that Zhu’s act was a “performance piece.” Zhu himself, later on, revealed that it was all “fake.”
“Think of it this way – humans have their own moral standards and our behavior is regulated by these values. Our subconscious tells us that eating babies is not right… but on the other hand, it is not prohibited by any law. So I wrote a statement saying that no religion forbids cannibalism,” Zhu said.
“I took advantage of this space between morality and the law and based my work on it,” he added.
