Shanghai metro apologizes to “kissing couple”

Posted by jtsmyth8 on January 25, 2008

If you get caught kissing in public, you are in a public place and subject to filming. End of story. You wanna make out on the subway, then don’t be surprised if you end up on YouTube. You can’t expect privacy while you’re in a public place. How about this? Get a room.

“Shanghai’s metro rail authority apologized to a couple who had threatened to sue after a video of them kissing on a station platform was posted on the Internet, state media reported on Friday.The video clip shows the couple in a prolonged embrace as three voices speaking in the local Shanghai dialect can be heard in the background laughing and making lewd sexual comments.”

‘We made formal apologies and are negotiating with the couple over compensation.’ (story)
