The Georgian ambassador to Japan sparked a lively debate after tweeting a short video of himself riding a subway car in a priority seat reserved for passengers who are elderly, pregnant or have a disability.

喬治亞駐日本大使在推特上發布一段他搭地鐵時坐在保留給老弱婦孺的博愛座的短影片,引發熱議。

Some people had no issue with 35-year-old Teimuraz Lezhava using a priority seat when no one else in need is around. The fact he is in perfect health did not come into the equation.

有些人覺得,35歲的列札瓦在身邊沒老弱婦孺時佔用博愛座並無不妥。這跟列札瓦的身體健康到不需要坐博愛座無關。

But others were appalled by his behavior. They argued that priority seats should be always left vacant, citing the fact that some people have disabilities that are not always obvious, coupled with a perceived awkwardness of asking others to give up their seat.

但其他人則對其行為感到震驚,認為博愛座不能隨意佔用,理由是有些人的殘疾並不明顯,再加上請人讓座會令人尷尬。
