What started off as a hilarious news blooper has now served to highlight the extent of censorship in China’s social media. Reporter, Liang Xiangyi rolled her eyes during the National People’s Congress and the internet loved it
. We’re guessing that this rare moment of humanity in a sea of scripted propaganda questions and rehearsed broadcasts struck a cord. However, any mentions of Liang Xiangyi were soon banned from Chinese social media and search engines. Couple this with the fact that Chinese leader Xi Jinping just removed his own term limits
and it looks like social media in China has some even darker times ahead.
