Chinese business tycoon Jack Ma, who is also the founder of the Alibaba Group, has been grabbing the headlines recently, with his statements. The 66-year-old was recently criticized for endorsing the ‘996’ Chinese work culture, which asks employees to work twelve hours a day (9am-9pm), six days a week.
However, if you think that it was harsh from Ma, his next advice has come as a pleasant one for all working individuals. In a highly controversial statement, the man who is one of the richest in China, asked everyone to follow the spirit of ‘669’ for an improved life.
Now, what the hell does 669 mean? Well, it means ‘sex for six days, six times, with duration being the key’.
According to Hindustan Times, Ma was speaking at his company’s mass wedding which takes place every year on ‘Ali Day’ on May 10 at the company’s headquarters in Hangzhou. He said,
“At work, we emphasize the spirit of ‘996’. In life, we should follow ‘669’.”
While the ‘996’ concept was thrashed by tech industry, the’669′ has sparked a massive debate on social media. People disagreed with Ma this time too and termed his words ‘lewd’. Here are some of the reactions to his statements:
Alibaba's Jack Ma wants its employees to follow 996 i.e 9am to 9pm six days a week at work and 669 i.e sex for six days, six times a week at home.
Does this man have no idea we are still humans and not robots yet?

Wow. I wonder how Alibaba folks will pull off 669 after following Jack Ma's advice of working 996 (9 am to 9 pm, six days a week at workplace) https://t.co/fAvqhCJGde

Jack Ma recommended his employees to follow ‘6 times sex in 6 days’ schedule for a healthy life. He should also explain that how Alibaba employees will get the most from the spirit of 669 in bed after getting fucked up by 996 philosophy at work
