Hurting the feelings of the Chinese people

"Hurting the feelings of the Chinese people" is a political catchphrase used by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People's Republic of China, in addition to Chinese state media organisations and Chinese Communist Party-affiliated newspapers such as the People's Daily, China Daily and Xinhua News Agency to express dissatisfaction or condemnation against the words, actions or policies of a person, organisation, or government that are perceived to be of an adversarial nature towards China, through the adoption of an argumentum ad populum position against the condemned target. Alternative forms of the catchphrase include "hurting the feelings of 1.3 billion people" and "hurting the feelings of the Chinese race".
