Left: The story of hand signals.
Middle: People impressed
Right: People astonished [meaning people were amazed or taken aback in a negative way]
[Refers to a mass shooting in Nakhon Ratchasima province during which a gunman shot many people before being killed the police led by police chief Gen. Chakthip. In the middle picture, it shows Gen. Chakthip’s hand signal instructing the police during the situation, the photo of which has become symbolic of the enter incident.
The right picture shows PM Prayuth giving a mini-heart sign to the people during his visit in Nakhon Ratchasima after the event. His signal and facial expression was criticized as inappropriate and frivolous during the sad time. Another version of this idea is in the cartoon below.]
