Jack Ma Told Alibaba Staff To Have Lots Of Sex At A Mass Wedding For His Employees
Alibaba owner, Jack Ma, attended a company mass wedding on Friday.
The billionaire businessman telling employees they should be having lots of sex to mirror the exacting work weeks demanded by the firm.
Ma recently defended the infamous "996" work week, which Chinese tech workers have protested against.
996 means 9 a.m.
To 9 p.m., six days a week, and last month the billionaire called it a "huge blessing" for young workers.
Ma made a pun on the controversial working practice on Friday, telling the 102 couples present: "At work, we emphasize the spirit of 996.
In life, we should follow 669," as per the Daily Mail's translation.
"What is 669?
Six days, six times, with duration being the key," said Ma.
The quote was reportedly released on Alibaba's Weibo page accompanied by a winking emoji.
The speech drew criticism online, with some saying the comment was lewd.
