NEW DELHI: A journalist from China is breaking the internet after she was caught on camera rolling eyes to a fellow journalist at a press conference. The video of part of the conference is doing its rounds on the social media after it was broadcast live on state media in China.
The journalist wearing red is identified as Zhang Huijun from American Multimedia Television (AMTV). She asked a question and stretched it for nearly 40 seconds.
Liang Xiangyi, who stood next to her wearing blue, apparently expresses her disinterest in the topic of discussion and rolls her eyes all over.

Certainly, the netizens wasted no time in taking the clip to social media. Liang Xiangyi became a popular internet sensation within a few hours.
Chinese social media was divided into two camps for the journalists - red and blue.
Last year, German Chancellor Angela Merkel's "epic eye-roll" while talking to Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 Summit had taken the internet by storm.
A clip, capturing Merkel's eye-rolling act during a candid conversation with Putin, went viral on the social media after it was posted on the Twitter by Fiona Adorno.
