, China bans Namewee’s viral pop song Fragile, The World Live Breaking News Coverage & Updates IN ENGLISH

A viral pop song that pokes fun at Beijing and its supporters has been banned in mainland China.

Fragile mocks so-called “little pinks” – a term which refers to young nationalists who rush to the defence of the Chinese government on the internet.

The lyrics contain words like “re-education camp”, “cotton”, “inseparable relationship”, taking a dig at sensitive issues ranging from Xinjiang to Taiwan sovereignty.

The video has gone viral in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Singapore, despite the ban in mainland China.

The BBC talks to the song’s creator, Namewee.
