Mark Zuckerberg Fact Check : My Wife China And Not Pretty

Mark Zuckerberg Fact Check : My Wife China And Not Pretty

Clickbait websites are sharing a post that Mark Zuckerberg wrote called My Wife China And Not Pretty.

Many praised it, calling him a true gentleman. Many shared it as an example of Mark Zuckerberg’s intelligence in choosing a wife with inner beauty.

Find out what Mark Zuckerberg wrote about his Chinese wife, and what the FACTS really are!

 

Mark Zuckerberg Allegedly Wrote This : My Wife China And Not Pretty

So many ask me, why do I choose Chinese wife who is not beautiful while I (according to them) is the one who has excessive wealth?

I should (according to them) I can get a wife who is “more” than my current wife, priscilla chan.

First of all to answer that question, I want to discuss what a beautiful woman is? and what is a woman not beautiful?

Honestly, I myself have many opportunities to meet beautiful women, many of them want to be my wife, but what is called “beautiful women” is mostly heart like glass, very fragile.

If you are sick as cranky like a king’s daughter, and arrogant, arrogant, and will always ask me why is it so rich but don’t want to change the car?

I know their goal of wanting to be my wife is to show off in the jet set environment, after which there will be more demands as a rich man’s wife.

A woman is as beautiful as however, if her heart can only demand, still looks ugly, her soul is also dirty.

Such a woman is just said to be an ugly woman, given free I don’t want to!

“Beauty outside will be reduced as age, but beauty from the inside will increase its value as age” that’s how Chinese proverb says, therefore I try to avoid to contact with things that quickly descends its value.

Then from them came another question, what do I like about priscilla chan, my wife?

“The expression of a woman’s face is a reflection of her heart” her smile always amazes me.

Since pregnant, Priscilla completely ignored the changes that happened to the expression of her face due to her pregnancy, kept dressed simple, without grooming, but precisely her happiness I felt fully and also seen to others.

I like the simplicity.

I like her look.

Priscilla is a passionate woman but wise, brave but loving, leader but can also support others.

I love everything while with her, I feel so comfortable & at ease.

I don’t feel like Priscilla is using me or boasting over me. In addition to having high intellectual intelligence, she also has high emotional intelligence, don’t forget that Priscilla is a graduate of Harvard University medicine.

You can try the university entrance test, majoring in law, medicine, economics is the majors that people grab, even though passing the entry test is not necessarily you can pass well.

So actually if you want to show off, it’s better for me to show off priscilla, not the other way around.

“Marriage is like a pair of shoes, only the wearer who knows the shoes are comfortable to wear or not” Priscilla is best suited for me, and I feel priscilla is the most ideal couple on the face of this earth.

I used to get acquainted with Priscilla in the queue in the toilet. In his eyes, I am just a nerd, nothing more. From that moment on I said in my heart “This is my soulmate”

In your eyes, Priscilla is a woman not beautiful, but in my eyes she is the beautiful woman and most compatible with me.

I couldn’t resist showing off my photos with Priscilla being so happy. In the photo looks like me and priscilla are so peaceful & natural.

“SIMPLE IS BEAUTIFUL”

Mark Zuckerberg (founder of FACEBOOK)

 

Our Verdict : Misogynistic BULLSHIT!

The My Wife China And Not Pretty essay was NOT written by Mark Zuckerberg, and is utter misogynistic bullshit. Here is a short summary of our debunking :

  • Mark Zuckerberg did not write that, and has never commented on his wife’s looks.
  • The writer has horrible grammar and spelling, and is probably a Chinese native.
  • Priscilla Chan graduated from medical school at USC, not Harvard.

It is also shocking to see so many people think that it’s admirable for any man to say that he loves his wife even though she’s Chinese and not pretty.

That’s really misogynistic, and even racist. Think about it.

 

Mark Zuckerberg Did NOT Write My Wife China And Not Pretty

For those who are now asking, “How do you know that? You were not in the room!“, here are the reasons why we know that for sure…

Fact #1 : Mark Zuckerberg Writes Well

You guys are aware that Mark Zuckerberg has a Facebook page, right? If you read ANY of his posts, you will realise that he can write with PROPER GRAMMAR.

The My Wife China and Not Pretty essay reads like some Chinese person wrote it in Mandarin, and had it translated into English by Google Translate.

How on Earth does anyone believe that Mark Zuckerberg would write an essay with such horrible grammar?

Take a look at this 2015 Facebook post, where he announced that Priscilla was pregnant. Look at how well he wrote it :

Fact #2 : Mark Zuckerberg Did Not Write It

The picture was misappropriated from his 2 January 2020 Facebook post, in which he wished everyone Happy New Year.

If you go through his posts, you will NOT find a single post about his wife being “China and not pretty”.

Fact #3 : Mark Zuckerberg Would Never Sign Off Like That

Never mind Mark Zuckerberg…. Who on Earth would sign off a Facebook post or article like this???

Mark Zuckerberg (founder of FACEBOOK)

His name is clearly visible at the top of his Facebook posts. And his name would be posted right under the title of every article he wrote that is published in the media.

And seriously – do you really think he needs to remind people that he founded Facebook?

Fact #4 : Mark Zuckerberg Has Never Commented On Priscilla’s Looks

As far as we can determine, Mark Zuckerberg has never commented on Priscilla’s looks. He has always complimented her in other ways :

Even in this Annie Leibovitz picture of both of them, he commented on her expression, not her looks.

Fact #5 : Priscilla Chan Graduated From USC’s Medical School

Priscilla Chan graduated from Harvard University, but she did not study medicine there. She graduated from Harvard with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology.

Did Mark Zuckerberg really forget that his wife graduated from University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine?

Can COVID-19 Spread Through Fruits & Vegetables?

Can COVID-19 spread through fruits and vegetables? A Hong Kong laboratory claimed to have found the evidence…

Find out what the facts are, and how to safely purchase fruits and vegetables to avoid COVID-19!

 

Can COVID-19 Spread Through Fruits & Vegetables?

This message has been circulating on WhatsApp for a few days, claiming that a Hong Kong laboratory found trace amounts of the COVID-19 virus on the skin of fruits and vegetables long after an infected person touched them.

From trusted source in Hong Kong today:

“In our laboratory, we found trace amount of the virus on the skin of fruits and vegetables after 12 hours of being touched by another customer who was infected.

We recommend our staff to avoid salads. Do not eat the fruits within 48 hours of purchase, or pour some boiling water over the fruit before cutting. Berries, apples, cucumbers and tomatoes are the worst because some people eat the skin.

This explains why the virus is spreading faster in the west than asia. Most Asians do not eat salad and very few people eat the skin of any fruit.

We have to assume anything that comes from outside our home within 48 hours is infected. Shoes, clothes, our hair, all food.”

COVID-19 Can Spread Through Fruits & Vegetables, But…

Now, COVID-19 spreads through respiratory droplets, and can persist for a short time.

So it is entirely possible that an infected person may transmit the virus droplets to fruits and vegetables by handling them, or coughing / sneezing near them.

That’s why health experts are advising you to only touch what you wish to purchase, and wash your produce with soap and water.

Recommended : COVID-19 Food Safety : Fruits, Vegetables, Takeouts

However, the message that have been circulating above is FAKE, and we will show you why…

Reason #1 : No News Report On Such A Tremendous Discovery

If this Hong Kong laboratory discovered that the COVID-19 virus persists on the skin of fruits and vegetables, it would have been headline news worldwide.

Health authorities would have to issue directives on how to keep fresh produce clean and clear of the COVID-19 coronavirus (also known as SARS-CoV-2).

Yet, there is not a single reliable news report on such a tremendous discovery.

Reason #2 : COVID-19 Not Proven To Spread Through Fruits / Vegetables

According to the Harvard School of Public Health, there is no evidence that COVID-19 can spread through fruits and vegetables.

In fact, they point out that the COVID-19 virus cannot survive long on food, and the greatest risk of contracting it is from touching a shopping cart or shopping basket.

You also need to physically touch your face with your contaminated, to transfer the virus to your eyes, nose and mouth. If you wash your hands with soap or a hand sanitiseryou will be safe.

Reason #3 : Soap Destroys COVID-19

There is no need to keep your fruits for 48 hours. Neither do you need to pour boiling water over the fruits, before cutting them.

Simply washing them with water and food-safe soap will destroy the virus, just like how washing hands with soap.

Reason #4 : COVID-19 Is Not Spreading Faster In The West Than The East

COVID-19 is not spreading in the West “faster” than in the East. It’s spreading rapidly WORLDWIDE.

This is due to the ease by which people travel these days – whether it’s by air, rail, or public transport.

That’s why many countries are imposing home quarantines or movement restrictions, to cut the chain of infection.

Reason #5 : Asia Was NOT Spared

The hypothesis that Asians are less susceptible because they do not eat the skin of fruits, or salad, is clearly false, because COVID-19 is rapidly spreading across Asia.

Until recently, China had the most COVID-19 cases in the world. And it is rapidly spreading across the rest of Asia.

COVID-19 Food Safety : Fruits, Vegetables, Takeouts

COVID-19 easily spreads through touch, but what about our food – fruits, vegetables, or even takeouts?

Find out what you should or should not do, to ensure that your food is safe from COVID-19!

 

COVID-19 Food Safety : Pre-packed Food / Takeouts

First, let’s address the simpler issue of food takeouts, based on advice from the CDC, Harvard School of Public Health, the US FDA and the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control.

  1. COVID-19 is unlikely to be transmitted through cooked foods.
  2. Cooking destroys COVID-19, so the only risk is if an infected person coughs onto the food while packing it
  3. There is some risk with raw, uncooked foods like salads, so try not to order such foods.
  4. COVID-19 can be present on cash, so it would be a good idea to prepay with a credit card.
  5. Where possible, request for food deliveries with minimal or no contact – food left at the doorstep.
  6. COVID-19 can remain on cardboard surfaces for up to 24 hours, so it is advisable to transfer the meal onto a plate and discharge the packaging
  7. Always wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, after handling food takeouts

 

COVID-19 Food Safety : Fruits, Vegetables + Other Raw Foods

This is important for those who like to eat salads, not just those eating fruits. It basically covers any kind of raw food.

  1. There is currently no evidence that COVID-19 can spread through eating or touching raw fruits or vegetables.
  2. The COVID-19 virus can survive on surfaces for a limited amount of time, but not for long periods of time like some other viruses.
  3. Avoid squeezing and touching fruits and vegetables unless you intend to buy them.
  4. You should at least wash fruits, vegetables and other raw foods in clean running water, before consuming them.
  5. To be safe, foods that are meant for raw consumption should be washed with (food-safe) soap and water.
  6. In case you are worried about the virus sticking onto the skin, you can peel the fruits, and wash your hands, before eating them.
  7. Wash and clean cutting boards, utensils and dish cloths with hot, soapy water.
  8. Wash your hands with soap and water, before and after preparing your food

Again, we should repeat that there has been NO documented cases of COVID-19 transmission through food.

Health authorities are only advocating for good hand washing practices, before and after preparing food… and of course, before consuming your food.
