BEIJING: A Chinese pornstar was caught on camera performing a solo sex act in Swedish furniture giant Ikea store’s bed display following which the company has stepped up security in and around its stores and lodged a complaint to the Chinese officials.
According to the report, the incident took place in Ikea’s branch in the Tianhe district in Guangzhou, the capital city of Guangdong province in south China.
Though it is not clear as to when this incident happened but some media reports said that it possibly took place before the coronavirus outbreak since people visiting the store were not wearing face masks in a viral video about the incident.
In the two-minute clip, which went viral, the woman was seen performing a sex act wearing just a white shirt in the bed display section of the store.
The Swedish furniture chain has apologised to its customers after the video went viral and has stepped up security. The company issued a statement and said that it was “taking the matter very seriously”.
“We oppose and condemn these actions and have reported the incident to the police. Ikea is committed to providing home inspiration for the public. We will increase security and cleaning in order to create a safe, comfortable and healthy shopping experience and environment,” the Swedish furniture company said, according to the Sun.
Though the identity of the woman is still not clear, she was identified by many social media users as a Chinese porn star by the name of ‘Fullfive’.
Ikea China has also lodged a formal complaint to the police against the woman.
China's state-run Global Times also condemned the incident and warned that the porn actress and her cameraman could face criminal charges including a prison term of up to three years for the offence of “spreading obscene material”.
Social media platforms that showed the objectionable clip are also likely to face action for failing to filter the content.
