We live in a world of great economic disparity. The rich indulge in unimaginable luxuries. The poor starve. And the son of a Chinese billionaire bought his dog eight iPhone 7s, just for funsies.
Wang Sicong — the son of Wang Jianlin, a Chinese businessman whose net worth is over £23 billion — bought his precious pup Coco eight iPhone 7s, according to a post on the dog’s verified Weibo account. In China, an iPhone 7 costs between 6,388 and 7,988 yuan (equivalent to £737 and £922), meaning Sicong spent upwards of £5,800 on phones for his dog, which is pretty much pocket change to a billionaire.
Coco has yet to make an official statement on how she feels about the loss of the headphone jack. We also have no comment about how Coco feels about being a pawn in her owner’s lavish display of wealth, but just look into those eyes. Coco knows. Coco believes in a better world. [CNN]
