A man in Jiangmen city, Guangdong province, China was last week caught eating the feces of women in a shopping plaza’s ladies’ room.
According to a guard at the shopping center told local TV that the man has been spotted going in and out of the ladies’ toilets since this year … and that he frequently walks in on the women before they could finish flushing the toilet.
‘He goes to the second floor ladies’ room to find [feces] to eat,’ the guard said. ‘He usually comes between 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. during the first half of the day, and then comes again at around 3:00 p.m.’
Shanghaiist published a conversation transcript between the man and a reporter after he was seen coming out from another female toilet (video below) … and it shows the extent of the shocking situation:
Reporter: What’re you doing here?
Man: Eating sh*t.
R: What? What’s in your hands?
M: It’s sh*t.
R: Why would you want to do that?
M: I eat it when I’m hungry.
R: But why do you choose to go to the ladies’ room?
M: It’s more tasty.
Reporter: Isn’t your family worried about you?
Man: They’re all dead.
R: Don’t you know this behavior isn’t good or healthy?
M: I’ve eaten sh*t for eight years. I feel better after eating it.
So far, the man – who is believed to have a mental health problem – has not been arrested or taken to the hospital. Instead, the mall and the toilets have been shut down, and residents are calling for the government to help treat him.
