In one video to his 176,000 followers, Huang had also filmed himself downing baijiu and lighting tissue paper soaked in alcohol, while another clip showed a stack of dozens of bottles. His wife, known as Ms. Li, said she would work for the rest of her life to pay off her husband of eight years’ debts, according to Straits Times. The couple share a son, who is getting ready to start kindergarten this year and Huang had built a new house just this year.
According to the local media outlet Southern Metropolis Daily, the two influencers knew each other, and Huang had even attended Wang’s funeral, where he had allegedly pledged to consume less alcohol. Baijiu contains up to 60 percent alcohol. Huang and Wang had been known for imbibing Chinese liquor during his broadcasts. Posting daring stunts online is thought by some influencers to increase their chances of receiving money from their followers.
Wang Cause of Death
A video on social media, which went viral, showed Wang drinking several bottles of baijiu spirits and pouring some out to set fire to it on the table. His death was widely discussed online in China and has prompted calls for stronger regulations of the nation’s thriving live-streaming industry.
On May 16, Wang had taken part in four one-on-one battles with influencers with the aim of earning the most amount of gifts from fans within a short space of time. He lost three of the rounds and then consumed baijiu as a punishment, totaling at least seven bottles that night, according to viewers. Wang finished his live streaming after midnight. His friend told a Chinese news outlet that he was discovered dead the following afternoon. When his family found him, he was already gone. He didn’t even get a chance for emergency treatment,’ a man named Mr. Zhao told Shangyou News. Drinking during live streams is banned by Douyin. Penalties include warnings, users being restricted from livestream competitions, and users being shown on the app.
Wang had previously been banned from the app for drinking but he bypassed this by opening new accounts, Chinese media reported. His most recent account had amassed more than 44,000 followers. A report by authorities last year found more than one billion internet users were active on short video platforms such as Douyin and the industry is worth around 199 billion yuan (£ 22 billion). Wang’s death has fueled renewed calls for the safety and regulation of such apps.
The People’s Daily’s opinion section published a comment on Weibo denouncing “off-track livestream behavior.” A number of Chinese live streamers have died as a result of their online activity. Yu Hailong, who became famous for eating large amounts of food on Douyin, died in 2021 after long hours of high-intensity work,’ according to his agency. Dafei, a live streamer notorious for drinking beer and cooking oil in front of an audience, died shortly after an online broadcast in 2018.
