Here's The Graffiti A Chinese Teen Scraped Into A 3500-Year Old Egyptian Temple

A Chinese teen etched his name into the Luxor, a 3500-year Egyptian temple.

Via Reddit, here’s what it looked like.

ImgurThe BBC reports that the teen’s family has apologized, after the kid was attacked on social media:

On Friday a micro-blogger posted a photo of graffiti at a temple complex in Luxor, Egypt, which said: “Ding Jinhao was here”.

Angry internet users then managed to identify the teen, posting his date of birth and school online, reports said.

His mother told a local paper they were sorry for his actions.
