An almost similar incident has happened in China where a reporter’s eye roll is breaking the internet.

Liang Xiangyi, a Shanghai-based financial journalist, was present at a media briefing on the sidelines of China’s annual parliament session. During the press conference, Xiangyi was spotted showing disgust at the journalist next to her, as the latter was posing a long and convoluted question to a government official. She was so upset by what she was hearing that she rolled her eyes while turning her head away from the other reporter.
Within minutes, Xiangyi’s eye roll went viral on the internet in China with social media being flooded with memes cartoons and parody videos. She became a sensation on Weibo, China’s leading social media platform overnight.
