Several groups of people in China are so incensed with an international court ruling against the country, that they’re taking their anger out on what they view as symbols of America: Apple and KFC.

Videos of people smashing iPhones have started to go viral in the country, and there are angry mobs protesting outside KFC outlets in at least 17 cities, local news reports say.

On Weibo, users are also posting their photos of purportedly smashed iPhones.

This user says: “Take out your iPhone. If you don’t smash it, you aren’t Chinese!”

Outside KFC outlets in cities such as Hangzhou and Changsha, people are yelling and holding signs telling “American goods” to “get out of China.”

The police in some of the cities have had to be dispatched to maintain order.
