China’s top Pianist has been arrested and detained for procuring the services of a prostitute. The incident was splashed all over social media as if there has been a concerted effort between official news media and certain high profile civic groups to ensure that the news went viral. It’s should be noted that prostitution is not a serious crime in China. However, some people have died or disappeared because of it.
