In the now-deleted post, the man - named as Li Kaixiang by Abacus News - said that when he got busy at work, he had to ignore his girlfriend's messages on WeChat.

So he created a bot that would chat with his girlfriend 24/7. 

By the end of the day, Li's girlfriend had sent the bot over 300 messages

"I may have been replaced," he joked. 

At one point, Li's girlfriend seemed to have figured out that she was not exactly talking to her boyfriend.
