The publication quoted the audio clip of the woman: "I accidentally found out that he had been chatting with other women on his phone. So I knew he wasn't being faithful."

"I heard from his friends that even after breaking up, he wasn't upset... I was at home crying for three days. I felt miserable. I wanted to give him a taste of my sadness. So I sent him a ton of onions to his house, to let him know what it feels like to cry," said Zhao.

Ex-boyfriend Asks Whether Guys Should Cry After Break-up

According to the report, the delivery man had to make 40 trips to deliver the entire consignment. Speaking to Passion News, the ex-boyfriend expressed his ignorance over the rule pertaining to break-up.

"This ex-girlfriend of mine is really something. After we broke up, she kept telling everyone that I did not shed a single tear. You mean that guys must cry after a breakup?" he said.

The epic break-up saga that went viral on Weibo, the Chinese social media site, crossed over 150 million views. One of the users commented: "If that were me, I would turn around and sell [the onions]." Asia One reported that Zhao's ex-boyfriend resold the onions for 1000 yuan (US$140).
