In Shanghai the 13th of March 2018, an annual press conference of the Chinese government took place. Scripted questions was being raised on this choreographed event.

On live stream TV a journalist openly showed her disgust by rolling her eyes toward the question from the journalist
standing next to her. With an enormous effect this silent gesture spread quickly over social media. At the end of the day her name was no more to be found, a deleted event censored from ever to be mentioned again. What was left was a fan base with merchandise honoring of her face.
