Beijing Symphony Orchestra (BSO) suspended  their Russian chief cellist, Oleg Vedernikov, 46, for his insulting conduct to a train passenger and called on him to reflect on his inappropriate behavior, the BSO stated Friday.

"BSO has suspended Vedernikov and will further handle the issue in accordance with his employment agreement," Zhang Xiaoguang, the spokesperson of the BSO, said in a press conference Friday.

Whether Vedernikov can resume his job depends on his attitude, Zhang said.

Public anger was inflamed after a four-minute video of the incident was uploaded to the news portal sina.com Wednesday. It showed Vedernikov insulting a female fellow passenger who sat in front of him by first putting his feet on the back of her seat and then swearing at her in Chinese after she protested, on a D8 bullet train from Shenyang, Liaoning Province to Beijing Monday.

Both BSO and the cellist, who has worked for the BSO for around 10 years, according to the Beijing Times, made public apologies on Wednesday.

Xia Xueluan, a sociologist from Peking University, told the Global Times Friday that artists are expected to behave as appropriately off stage as on. He added that Chinese nationals who litter, spit, smoke and curse should take the incident as a warning.  

"Shouldn't we reflect upon our personal qualities, since it is so common to see people putting their feet up on public transport?" said Xia.
