Winnie the Pooh has been blacked out from Chinese social media in the lead-up to the country's 19th Communist Party Congress this fall, the Financial Times reported Sunday.

While no official explanation of this purge has yet been offered, it likely has something to do with memes in the past that have compared Chinese President Xi Jinping to the adorable, if slow-witted, bear.

Comparisons between Xi and Disney -owned Winnie the Pooh first circulated in 2013 during the Chinese leader's visit with then U.S. President Barack Obama.

Apart from flashing error messages, Winnie the Pooh stickers have also been removed from WeChat's official sticker gallery.

Currently, attempts to write "Winnie the Pooh" in China's famous social network Weibo end up with a pop-up warning "illegal content".

The censorship comes ahead of the country's Communist party congress this autumn and while. The crackdown on the social media was always predicted to be on its way.

Some pictures of the AA Milne character and references using his English name are still permitted on the popular Twitter-like platform Weibo.

Posts comparing Chinese president Xi Jinping to the cartoon bear - a longstanding joke in China - were also taken down.

In 2014, a photographed handshake between Xi and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was matched with an image of Pooh gripping the hoof of his gloomy donkey friend Eeyore.

And in 2015, the political analysis portal Global Risk Insights called a picture of Xi standing up through the roof of a parade vehicle paired with an image of a Winnie the Pooh toy auto "China's most censored photo" of the year.
