China’s richest man, Wang Jianlin, built up his fortune through constructing apartment buildings, malls, and movie theaters. He’s now worth over $30bn, which puts him among the 20 richest people in the world. While he may enjoy the fruits of his labor through his luxury lifestyle, it’s his son’s dog that is really living the good life.
Wang’s only son Sicong has an Alaskan Malamute dog named Coco. Sicong regularly features Coco on Weibo, a Chinese microblogging site similar to Twitter. Sicong is apparently on a mission to piss off every non-billionaire in China (and the world) by posting pictures of Coco with luxuries that she can’t even use or appreciate.
Last year, Coco was featured wearing two new Apple iWatches in pictures that gracefully say “I’m so rich I’m willing to literally throw money away.”
But Sicong escalated his disdain for thriftiness to new levels when he posted pictures of Coco with not one, not two, but EIGHT new iPhone 7s. We’re pretty sure that without opposable thumbs or the ability to understand language, one iPhone would be totally wasted on this dog. But Sicong doesn’t care. Apparently when you are the only son of someone worth $30bn, no luxury for your dog can be spared
Here are the inglorious pictures:
