Chinese influencer eats a live wasp which ends up deforming his face

Wang Can is a Chinese influencer and recently ended up at the center of a minor controversy for posting a video on his social channels where he eats a live wasp.

The clip, now no longer available for viewing. was originally posted on Douyin, a video content sharing platform particularly popular in China where the young man has a following of 560,000 followers.

In a video he uses a pair of chopsticks to catch a wasp and eats it, exclaiming: ‘Although I am a little afraid, I will eat it anyway’.

He suffered extremely swollen lips and had difficulty swallowing after filming the video on Friday, but claimed it had attracted more than 100,000 viewers and had planned to repeat the stunt again on Sunday evening.

Soon afterwards his lips and eyes swelled up, but he started eating congee, which he had difficulty swallowing, before going to a hospital for treatment.

The images, which evidently drew reports as well as criticism, have been removed and Wang’s profile has been suspended.

The influencer is well-known in China for his videos of dangerous behaviour such as poking a wasps’ nest without protective clothing.

Wang Can’s message

“I want to thank those who supported me. Now I will use this channel to give you some updates and post positive, quality videos for everyone.”

What is Wasp?

A wasp is any insect of the narrow-waisted suborder Apocrita of the order Hymenoptera which is neither a bee nor an ant.

Unlike bees, wasps can sting multiple times because they don’t lose their stinger with their sting. They will also inject a venom into your skin with their sting. Most wasp stings can be incredibly painful, especially if they surprise you.
