Baby Guo Meimei, whose real name is Guo Meiling, is a 20 year old woman, who stirred national outrage by flaunting her wealth under the identity of general manager of Red Cross Commerce on Sina's microblog (weibo), known as China's twitter.
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. Infuriated micro-bloggers threatened to boycott the charitable society because they thought it was riddled with corruptions. Rumors also circulated that Guo was the daughter of Guo Changjiang, vice president of Red Cross Society of China. However, Guo Changjiang denied he had a daughter.
