Scary Halloween makeup not allowed on metro


After being accused of lacking Halloween spirit, the Guangzhou metro in South China's Guangdong Province on Monday said it was only trying to prevent passengers from panicking when it required some ghouls and witches to remove their Halloween makeup. 

Transit workers at the city's Hanxi Changlong Station had asked pre-Halloween revelers to wipe off their makeup before being allowed to pass security checks. 

"Some of the passengers' makeup was really scary so we advised them to remove their makeup. Most of the passengers agreed," a staffer with the metro station said on Monday. 

Hanxi Changlong Station is near the ChimeLong Paradise amusement park, where Halloween activities are being held in a warm-up to the festival.

A transit worker said local public security authorities noticed some passengers wore makeup that looked like they were bleeding, and worried it might cause panic among the other passengers. 

"We provided some makeup remover for the passengers," the staffer said. 

"There are many kids and senior citizens on the subway, I support the Guangzhou metro," wrote a netizen on Sina Weibo. 

"I think most people can tell the difference between real blood and makeup, this kind of makeup isn't going to cause a major panic," said another. 

According to the result of a poll initiated by a news site on Weibo, about 90 percent of 75,000 respondents supported the Gaungzhou metro.
