New York Post falls for decade-old tale about man suing his ex-wife over their ugly child

Snopes: “Probably false”
nypost

The New York Post ran a story yesterday about a Chinese court siding with “fuming hubby” Feng Jian, who sued his estranged wife for not telling him about her plastic surgeries and giving birth to an ugly child.

The Post’s last line:
filedunder
I’d add: BULLSHIT

The Huffington Post ran the same piece a year ago, and later inserted this note:
sorry

Snopes says the tale “has been kicking around the Internet since at least 2004.”
