‘Who wants the child?’ Bankrupt entrepreneur tries to give away his son claiming it’s in the name of ‘art’.

A businessman who recently went bankrupt has tried to give his son away on a busy street in China.

The entrepreneur, known only as Tang, from Zongyang County in Anhui Province, was pictured on February 29 with the little boy holding a sign that read: ‘Who wants the child?’ reports The Daily Mail.

In another instant the boy was sitting with his head down, also holding a sign that said: ‘Please adopt me.’

Since losing his fortune, Tang said his financial difficulties have forced him to put his son up for adoption. He claims that the act was for ‘art’ and he wanted to highlight the issue of ‘forced demolition’, reports the People’s Daily Online.

Tang has since claimed it was all in the name of ‘art’

He said: ‘It was really art. I just wanted web users to focus on the issue of forced demolition.’

After uproar about his behaviour, Tang has apologised and promised that the performance will not be repeated.

OK backup a bit, I am very confused! So is he now saying it was all just some crazy art experiment? NOT FUNNY!  Or am I the one going totally whacky here?

Can anyone confirm for us what the sign actually reads?

  • As a mother, I’ve sometimes joked about trading my kids in. Totally 100% joking tho. I think putting your child on the street with a sign is taking it too far. Would love to know the translation of the signs


  • thats not art. Has the sign been translated?


  • What an idiot. I wonder if his mother knows. It’s certainly not something I would describe as art


  • Maybe art or just trying to make a statement either way it is wrong. What if someone had taken up the offer, what would he had done?


  • It is Chinese writing. He confessed what he did. Fancy making his son hold a sign. Surely he could have found a better way than that. I wonder how many other children he has. Possibly there is no Welfare system that he knows the baby will be cared for. If he can’t afford to feed the baby surely there has to be a better way. Baby boys are popular over there. I presume he is calling being bankrupt “forced demolition”. If the do the same as they do in Aust. they will confiscate their furniture and other assets to sell to pay a proportion of his debts.

    • This is a sad situation – but this form of protest or art does not help.


  • This seems to be many things – but not art.


  • I would be really concerned about that child!!


  • You can’t be serious,he deserves a decent parent!


  • The little boy would be better off with another dad.


  • What a moron!


  • Wtf, seriously how is that ART??
