A Chinese porn star 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. 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.
After the video went viral, the Ikea said to be ‘more careful’ and pledged stricter security.
Some social media users who studied the clip before it was removed suggested the store could be in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong because they could hear Cantonese being spoken in the background, perthnow reported.
In the two-minute clip, the woman can be seen wearing only a white shirt as she pleasures herself in various sections of the store. As the shoppers, including pensioners and young children, walked by, the woman sat on a chair and pushed her butt towards the camera.
‘We resolutely oppose and condemn this kind of behaviour, and immediately reported it to the police in the city of the suspected store,’ IKEA said in a statement as reported by AFP, without revealing the name of the branch.
As per the report in AFP, the uncensored footage of the video have been removed from Chinese social media, the Swedish company’s response to the clip gained nine million views.
IKEA on Saturday said that it would take “even more careful security and public cleanliness measures” and encouraged all customers to “browse stores in an orderly and civilised way”.
