Felix Kjellberg, aka PewDiePie, world renowned gamer and one of the most popular people on the Internet has officially been banned from the biggest online market in the world, China.

PewDiePie, who is originally from Sweden was banned for comparing Chinese President Xi Jinping to Winnie the Pooh, an offense which could land you some serious jail time if he were a Chinese citizen. A few years ago Internet users in China began sharing images of Winnie the Pooh as a form of protest against the Chinese Communist Party and to mock is President Xi Jinping, leading to a full removal of Winnie The Pooh from the Chinese Internet.

So PewDiePie is in no way the first person to feel the ban hammer laid down by China, but he is the latest.
