This sports journalist may have stumbled at her job but netizens dazed by her beauty are giving her a pass.
BD News journalist Xing Chengbo caused quite a stir online when she flubbed the names of 15 of the 23 national footballers taking part in the EAFF E-1 Football Championship in an article published on Dec 9.
Xing's errors include identifying goalkeeper Liu Dianzuo as Liu Dianzhu and using the wrong Chinese characters for the names of Feng Jin, Mei Fang, Jiang Zhipeng and Ji Xiang, among others.
Shortly after the article was published, Chinese netizens flooded Xing's Weibo with comments questioning her professionalism and slamming BD News.
But the criticism of Xing was soon side-tracked when pictures of her in a tight, pink dress began circulating online.
The pictures had netizens marvelling at Xing's looks and posting comments in her defence.
While Xing may have been absolved in the eyes of some netizens, BD News announced on Dec 9 that she would be demoted to a "trainee journalist".
The publication also apologised for the errors and promised to work harder to produce content for its readers.
