I'll translate that for you:
*f*ck* the Chinese.
*f*ck* them forever.
Never forget, to keep f*cking them.

“Meanwhile Corona beer is being withdrawn from the market”. Sad news, but it’ll probably be back soon relabelled as “Brexit Brew” as revenge for the Brits causing all the aggro in the first instance? What about a rebrand as Bubonic beer? If a hygienic kitchen scouring powder can be called Cif then ...
