The post was also liked by Romeo Beckham and Cruz Beckham, Brooklyn's brothers.


Many Chinese users found the post really offensive not only to the Chinese community but also to the whole Asian community as they believed he was trying to imply that there shouldn't be too many Asian tourists appeared in a European country.


Therefore, thousands of angry comments left by Chinese users flooded Brooklyn's Instagram post immediately.

"…They [Chinese tourists] are free to go anywhere. I don't know what you mean by posting this. But Italy is fill [filled] with all sorts of tourists and I bet there are also a lot of Europeans," an Instagram user @chekejin commented below the post.

"Just because people are from a different culture than you are doesn't make you superior to them and it's wrong to discriminate or degrade people who mind their own business and don't offend you. There are tons of European tourists in Italy as well as in New York and I don't see you posting specific stuff about that so this isn't a very friendly post," commented Instagram user @_zhengl.


Many Chinese netizens also took to domestic social media platform Weibo to criticize his rude behavior.

"For whatever reason, it is impolite for him to take pictures of others without their knowledge. And why doesn't the place look like Italy anymore only with the presence of Chinese tourists?" commented a user @chihuoliuyouyou on Weibo.


The post had been later deleted by Brooklyn and his Instagram account was set private.


Coincidentally, the post clashed with the ongoing China's National Day holiday that kicked off on October 1, therefore many related the issue to the increasing number of Chinese tourists traveling in Europe during the week-long holiday.


In recent years, more and more Chinese people prefer to spend their holiday traveling abroad. An estimated seven million Chinese people were expected to spend their National Day holiday traveling overseas this year, according to a tourism report made by Ctrip, Chinese online travel agency.
