The hypocrisy is astounding? I don't think so.
The actions of one stupid disrespectful chinese teenager is hardly indicative of the entire chinese people as being immoral tourists...
Infact was it not another Chinese person who photographed that picture and posted it on a chinese social media site to express shame and remorse on behalf of that kid?
Also the headline on the right "They don't like journalists" says to me that person applying for visa was a journalist. So I hardly think that person went over there to be touristy, and more to dig up dirt/something interesting on the Chinese. Which the Chinese officials would of definitely been leery of.
So yeah, I don't think you can really compare the two.
