Baidu CEO is pouring water on his head
Chinese netizens have split into two camps after this rare event. One party praised Mr. Li for his calm, skillful handling of the situation and continued his speech despite his wet hair and shirt. Meanwhile, the other half said that Mr. Li deserved to receive the water bottle because of Baidu's poor search results.
In 2016, Baidu faced a strong public outcry after a Chinese student died from applying medical treatments advertised on Baidu's search page. This year, a Chinese journalist wrote a long article criticizing the quality of search results on Baidu.
Some even believe that Baidu is "self-compiling and acting" on this screen to PR. In response to this allegation, Baidu claims that they never staged such bullshit and this is still illegal.
On Tao, some funny businessmen even began to sell T-shirts that printed the moment when CEO Robin Li was dumped.
