According to BBC News reports, Mr. Kang has been banned from entering the restaurant. During one of his visits, Kang said, he ate 3.3lbs of pork trotters. Another time, the live-streamer polished off between 7.7lbs to 8.8lbs of shrimp.

On the other hand, the restaurant owner shared his part of the story with the TV channel and told that he loses a few hundred yuan every time Kang eats at his establishment.

The owner said: "Even when he drinks soy milk, he can drink 20 or 30 bottles. When he eats the pork trotters, he consumes the whole tray of them. And for prawns, usually people use tongs to pick them up, he uses a tray to take them all."

The restaurant owner further added that he will now blacklist all food live-streamers, and not just Kang.
