A shocking report from Thailand shows youth fascinated by Apple iPhone grabbing the newly launched iPhone 14 by selling their kidney.
The self-explanatory photo shared on Twitter shows three people with bloodied bandages on their abdomens each holding up a new Apple iPhone 14. The image is being widely circulated across the internet.

The image, which originated from Laos as a joke, was apparently taken seriously enough by some in Thailand that one person in authority came out to denounce it, just in case it was accepted at face value as true.
Sophon Mekthon, the managing director of the Organ Donation Centre under the Thai Red Cross Society, condemned the image as unethical and inappropriate and warned people that organ trading in Thailand is illegal.
