The internet lost it today after a screen-grab of an alleged group chat among the staffers at the management company of Chinese model and key opinion leader Chen Xuedong was posted online.

The conversation shows one employee telling other members of the chat group to pick out the color for their iPhone X, which is currently pre-selling for USD 1000 (RMB 6,548).

“The boss (Chen Xuedong) said everyone gets a new iPhone X and he asks me to write down what colors y’all want,” the chat history reads.

The screen capture was posted on Weibo and the story has quickly been picked up by several Chinese entertainment outlets.

Chen, a professional model and popular actor is considered a style icon that’s loved by Chinese Millennials; last year in Milan, he walked the Dolce & Gabbana runway with fashion blogger gogoboi.

Netizens have praised Chen’s generosity and expressed jealousy of Chen’s employees.

Weibo Comment: “Why haven’t I thought about working for Chen Xuedong? Now that an iPhone is officially more expensive than a kidney.”
