    A press conference during China's ongoing Two Sessions took a dramatic turn on Tuesday when a reporter was caught on camera delivering a truly exasperated eye roll in response to a fellow reporter's lengthy query.

    The moment — now in GIF form — immediately went viral on China's social media, with many saying how they shared her feelings.

    Zhang Huijun, a journalist for American Multimedia Television USA, had asked a verbose question on Tuesday that rattled on for about 45 seconds from start to finish.

    The stilted language and length proved a little too much for Liang Xiangyi, a reporter for China Business Network.

    As Zhang continued her question to Xiao Yaqing, head of State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission (SASAC) concerning capital flight, Liang let her feelings be known — with dramatic flair.

    Liang gives Zhang a darting glare before rolling her eyes and looking away in one Oscar-worthy motion.

    Netizens largely cheered Liang and jeered Zhang. "[Liang]'s acting skills are marvelous," posted "liuxinghengxinghaom7."

    "The Two Sessions are important meetings. Zhang's question was so long and lacked content. She is wasting the whole nation's time," posted "laoguiwu77."
