New footage has surfaced, now with sound, of the Chinese official going berserk after missing his second flight of the day. A loose translation of the video footage was made by UPenn blog Language Log:
“I originally booked a first class [ticket]…. What do you mean, huh?! What do you mean, huh?! I originally booked a first class [ticket]…. You’re really bullying me…. And not just once?! You’re really taking advantage of me. Hai! Hurry up and open the door!… Hai, how can you be like this? Really browbeating me!… First class….”
Yan Linkun has since been suspended from his Party duties while an investigation occurred. Though no follow-ups on his status have appeared, Yan publically apologized for his explosive rampage at the airport that went viral in Chinese media and in other international blogs.
According to Beijing-based blog, Beijing Cream, video searches of Yan Linkun on China’s video hosting site similar to YouTube, Youku, have also been blocked.
