He didn't return to Seattle, his old stomping ground, but to his ancestral village in southern China. It was his third trip back, though his first since being appointed ambassador.<p>At first, Chinese Internet users had criticized him as a "fake foreign devil who can't speak Chinese." But now the tide has turned.<p>Locke kicked off his return to his ancestral home with a video posted on China's version of Twitter. It's a nod to his status as an Internet sensation.
