In the chapter, we investigate how Weibo users condemned the lockdown escapees. In particular, we examine the use of the predominant metaphors deployed to portray the Wuhan lockdown escapees and discuss how these metaphors contribute to their discursive representations. The findings will advance our understanding of how lockdown escapees were collaboratively stigmatized on the Internet, even though they were struggling to make life choices amid the Covid-19 crisis.
