CHINA BANS PEPPA PIG FOR ITS ‘GANGSTER’ CONNOTATIONS
‘I LOVE IT WHEN YOU CALL ME BIG PEPPA’
The Democratic Republic of China isn’t afraid to ban things, and while the West might not agree with these decisions, it’s at least often obvious why they occur. We can’t say the same for the recent blacklisting of the children’s TV series
Peppa Pig, at least not without following the Notorious PIG down a Triad-shaped rabbit hole. See, Peppa Pig has been adopted as the unwitting mascot of an internet based anti-establishment group known as ‘shehuiren’ and was subsequently banned for promoting ‘gangster’ attitudes.
