Taobao Users Are Betting Money on When Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston Will Break Up
With Taylor Swift’s known streak of having many different romances, Chinese netizens are now betting money on Taobao to see how long her new relationship with British actor Tom Hiddleston will last.
Earlier this month, Taobao, an Alibaba-owned Chinese marketplace, was offering “breakup insurance” for Swift’s new relationship. Sellers of the insurance guaranteed that if the power couple breaks up, buyers would get back at least double their bet.
Tons of Chinese netizens jumped at the opportunity, believing it was going to be easy money. However, once major media outlets got hold of the story, the offer was taken down. Some users were disappointing in missing such a good money-making opportunity and voiced their disdain on Weibo.
But not to worry! It looks like there are more opportunities as users can also bet on things like Katy Perry’s relationship with Orlando Bloom and whether she’ll win the Grammy Award in 2017, according to Mashable.
