PewDiePie drew similarities between Chinese president Xi Jinping to Winnie the Pooh, a comparison made by many pro-democracy Hong Kong protesters.
China may have take action to censor PewDiePie after the popular YouTuber joked in a video about the similarities between the country’s president and the animated honey-loving bear Winnie the Pooh.
PewDiePie said in a video Friday that he had been “banned from China” over a video he published a few days ago. The video in question is the latest episode of PewDiePie’s running series of meme commentary, where he mentioned the pro-democracy protests happening in Hong Kong.
