Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailycaller.com: “YouTube’s PewDiePie Banned In China”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

YouTube’s largest personality announced Saturday that his videos are no longer available in China after he showed support for the Hong Kong protesters.

PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, runs the second largest channel on YouTube and the first largest to be organized around a single person, sporting over 100 million subscribers. However, Chinese viewers are now banned from accessing his content after the Swede posted a video that showcased several pro-Hong Kong memes.

“Well boys we did it, I’m banned from China,” Felix announced in a video on October 19. “After I spoke about the Hong Kong protest and showed their leader [China’s Xi Jinping] being mocked as looking like Winnie the Pooh I got banned from China. Now if you search anything PewDiePie related… it will just be completely blank,” he informed his audience.

“I knew it was gonna happen… me talking about the Hong Kong memes was gonna get me banned,” he added, referencing a video he did on October 16.

The October 16  video that triggered China’s censorship was the 68th edition of “Meme Review,” a show where Felix looks at popular internet memes and records his reactions.
