Baby Guo Meimei, whose real name is Guo Meiling, is a 20 year old woman, who stirred national outrage by flaunting her extravagant lifestyle – posting photos of villas, luxury sports cars, horses, and designer handbags to Sina Weibo, a Twitter-like social networking site – and claiming to be a general manager at a branch of the Red Cross Society.
Her showing off sparked wide suspicion as people questioned how a young woman working for a charitable organization could be so wealthy. According to Guo's weibo, she lived in a big villa in Beijing, drove Maserati and possessed a number of Hermes handbags. Her flamboyance affected the credibility of Red Cross Society of China, to which Guo had claimed her company affiliated.
