Woman's Husband Apparently Won't Buy Her an iPhone 5, So She ProtestsThis Saturday, Apple opened its newest store in Beijing. The Apple Wangfujing store is Asia's largest, and there were around one thousand people lined up at the opening. There was also this woman.


Dressed in red, she carried a sign that read: "My husband wont buy me an iPhone 5; Searching for my jeweled encrusted sugar daddy."

People holding signs and special outfits (here, a printed sweatshirt) are often signs of publicity stunts in China. One popular way to drum up publicity is to have a young woman hold up a sign, saying she's looking for a new boyfriend.

Not sure what's going on here, as this woman's shirt, however, has the same thing printed on it that the sign does.
