China blocks PewDiePie after jokes about Winnie the Pooh

2 min read

The list of well-known names who have received a Chinese ban continues to grow. The world-famous YouTuber PewDiePie is the latest addition after he expressed his support for the demonstrators in Hong Kong and the Chinese leader Xi Jinping in appearance compared with Winnie the Pooh.

“Well guys, we did it”

“Well guys, we did it,” PewDiePie says cheerfully in his latest video. “I’m blocked in China. If you search there on PewDiePie on a forum like Reddit or site like YouTube, you won’t get any results. I laugh, but I’m sorry if you’re in China and try to watch my videos. That’s not fun.”

The 29-year-old Brit, who was born in Sweden, knew that he would be blocked after the German DJ Zedd was already banned because he liked a tweet from South Park. The animated series has also disappeared from the Chinese internet because an episode was published earlier this month in which China was taken aback. Of course, the taboo on Winnie the Pooh also came along. The popular teddy bear has been censored for a number of years, meaning that the movie Christopher Robin, a live action film with the characters from the stories about Pooh, did not get a release in China.

South Park mainly wanted to show that Hollywood has been taking a lot of turns in recent years not to offend China. Film makers want to prevent their product from being censored, so that a release is not possible.
