Chinese artist, activist, and dissident Ai Weiwei? He’s not a big fan of Confucius, apparently. From his Twitter:
From whatever angle you look at it, Confucius is disgusting.
He followed that with the rather vulgar:
I don’t understand Confucius and Confucianism, do I also not understand your mother’s c**t?
Lest one be confused and think he’s reacting to this news, make no bones about it. In response to a tweeted question: “Are you talking about the movie Confucius or the person?” he said,
Kong Qiu, the second eldest son [i.e., Confucius the historical figure].
Not much room for doubt there.
I suppose I should also note that I, very reluctantly, have gotten a Twitter account. I still have serious misgivings about Twitter, but I suppose if you wanted you could follow ChinaGeeks (i.e, me, for the moment). Sigh…
