Man Goes On Hunger Strike After Dad Breaks Keyboard So He Can't Game (Brobro Still Lives At Home By The Way)

Note: Picture unrelated although I don't see a keyboard and I do want those drapes.

A Chinese man (if you can call him that) in his twenties recently went on a hunger strike after his dad broke his computer keyboard so he would stop gaming. Then his parents caved in and bought him a new keyboard because parenting is tricky and most people aren't very good at it.

Mr. Yang became fed up with his son's attitude and barged into his room. Seeing his son's room covered with snack wrappers and empty soda bottles, Mr. Yang asked Yang Yang [pseudonym] how long he's been playing. He flippantly replied "not long."


Angered by his response, Mr. Yang seized Yang Yang's keyboard and smashed it to the ground.

Yang Yang, a man in his twenties, locked himself in his room, inside his parents house, for a whole night, refusing to eat or drink anything. He exited his room the following day but, according to his mother, he still wouldn't consume anything, causing his mother to worry.

Living on the 8th floor, and seeing how unreasonable their son was being, the Yangs feared that Yang Yang would do something stupid, so they called the emergency services. When the authorities finally showed up, they were able to convince Yang Yang to eat something. Despite finally eating, Yang Yang still harbored a resentment towards his parents.

Hoping to reconnect with his son, Mr. Yang has purchased a new keyboard for his son.

Listen: I'll be the first to admit I have ZERO parental instincts, but even I know this is not how you do it. I would have made him boot his game up THEN DELETED HIS CHARACTER RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIM. Then grounded him. Then told him he has to move out within the week. Then stared him dead in the eyes and whispered, "Your mother and I are going to have really loud sex tonight -- you hear me? Really loud."

Thanks to Mnemosyne, who raised all nine muses by herself because Zeus is kind of a deadbeat dad.

    Yang? Is this in China, where they have the single child per family rule? Look up "little emperor syndrome" ... this is going to massively mess with Chinese society and culture over the next few years as this continues...

    Should have bought him a keyboard with black alps switches.

  • Stupidity of people will be the end of human civilization.

    I wonder if this is the same guy whose dad put out a virtual hit on his son, paying people to continually hunt down and kill him in game to discourage him from playing.

    Would be a funny "next step" in the story.
