Online censorship in China extends to Winnie the Pooh

In a content censorship move which has even gotten comedians into the game, Winnie the Pooh has been banished from the Internet in China. Wider implications were drawn by Peter Hartcher’s article From Liu Xiaobo to Winnie the Pooh, China’s net censors can make you disappear, who wrote ‘It may seem ridiculous, but for the Chinese Communist Party this is deadly serious.’ WhatsApp has also seen recent restrictions in China.
