It’s been a while since Yao Ming has been in the news. But he’s back to tell you to lay off the shark fin soup and save other wildlife.
As the human population increases, many wildlife species are decreasing, and the primary reason is that humans fail to treat animals as friends.
He also taped a television commercial where he jumps onto a basketball court to block a bullet fired at an elephant. Think about this for a second folks. This is like a David Lynch movie. A 7-foot-5 Chinese guy jumps onto a basketball court to block a bullet fired at an elephant. And in the background, a monkey wearing lipstick masturbates and falls off the rim.
In actual basketball news, Yao Ming says he is at 80% and looking forward to praticing with the Chinese National Team in advance of the world championships in Japan. Meanwhile, the Chinese team just lost six of seven games in a mini-tourney in Europe so perhaps Yao should be worried more about human rights violations to his teammates and coaches than protecting sharks.
