Couple accused of literally selling their kids into slavery so they could buy more in-app purchases

Worst Parents Ever Children Sold

We’ve seen some serious gaming addictions before, but this one might be the most extreme case we’ve ever heard of. GamesInAsia has translated a report from Games.sina.com.cn that describes how an unmarried couple in China has been accused of selling their children to human traffickers because they were worried that raising their children would give them less money to spend on in-app purchases in mobile games.

According to GamesInAsia’s translation, the couple sold their first child to traffickers because they didn’t think they could support it financially. When the second pregnancy occurred, the couple could have conceivably been able to support it but that would mean that the man in the relationship would have had to cut down on his in-app mobile gaming purchases, which was apparently out of the question.

“So many of their collective resources were going into A Hui’s gaming that the two felt, again, that they wouldn’t be able to support the child,” GamesInAsia writes. “So, once again, they sold him to traffickers.”

Thankfully, the couple have been arrested for their alleged misdeeds after the man’s father reported them to police, so it looks like their days of selling children into slavery just so they can afford more unique charms in Candy Crush Saga are over.
