A WeChat account owner has been ordered to pay Global Harbor shopping center 10,000 yuan ($1,460) for damaging its reputation after posting the mall was unlucky, Putuo People's Court said yesterday.

Leimenyi, an account to give opinions on fengshui, or traditional Chinese geomancy, commented on the district's biggest retailing mall on August 11, saying both the structure and decorations violated fengshui.

"It stands too close to the elevated road, cars running on which seem to cut the building, which will brings bad luck to customers," the article said. "The decoration uses Roman column-style pillars and embossed walls, which is an extreme copycat."

Leimenyi removed the article from the WeChat on August 23, after repeated requests from Global Habor, but it has been viewed more than 10,000 times. The mall said the posting had greatly affected its sales and sued for more than 1 million yuan.

The court said the comment was abusive and without evidence, but that the center could not prove its impact.
