Q: Can this country get any more childish?

Winnie the Pooh is now banned because he looks like Xi. http://shanghaiist.com/2017/07/17/winnie-the-pooh-censored.php.

Have you done a search on Youkou etc?

 

This whole China censorship/ western copyright stuff is a fucking minefield.  Who knows who blocked what.

 

I don't use a vpn outside of work. And I find many sites are geo blocked. It seems to go both ways. Very fustrating.

And here's the kicker, liberals are looking to China to be the world leader and didn't they also ban portrayals of homosexuals? #liberalvalues

Didn't they already ban the Pooh a couple of years ago? I guess it went the same way a lot of new things go... banned and somewhat enforced for a week then everyone forgets and it's business as usual.

 

It seems to be backfiring in any case. News of the ban is everywhere, usually with a couple of pics for comparison and a story making fun of the ban.

Ha. Ha. Ha. As one Canadian of Chinese decent noted " the cpp is just paranoid!"

We have tons of cartoons of Dumald and Putin. Pooh is a Canadian from Winnipeg. If Some guy wants to look like Pooh, that  is ok. Obama didn't make a fuss about being Tony the Tiger. Many Chinese kids know about Pooh bear and the cartoons. This will just make the government look stupid in their eyes. On the other Hand; I can see Kimmy getting really riled, and then threaten to nuke Winnipeg.

After Winnie the Pooh locals switched to the fat bully of Doraemon, the hugely successful Japanese manga series, on wechat and weibo, resulting in the fat boy also being banned. Sooooo, the answer to the title question is --- yes.

The insecurity of the leadership is laughable. Oooooh I am so afraid of the CCP that can't take a light-hearted joke and feels threatened by a cartoon character.

 

The new rulers of the world, not.
