The following post from journalist Xiao Han (萧含) sharing a photoshopped photo of Chinese President Xi Jinping (习近平) holding the handbag of his wife, Peng Liyuan (彭丽媛), as they disembark from an airplane during Xi’s official tour of Africa was deleted from Sina Weibo sometime before 7:50 p.m. yesterday, March 27, 2013.

The post is a repost of an original post that read: “Even a really awesome husband must help his wife carry her bag. Ha ha!”

The image below is an unaltered image of Xi and Peng disembarking from the airplane, in which Peng holds the handbag.
