A certain fictional bear has been blocked on Chinese social media

President Jinping has been compared to Pooh since 2013, the Guardian notes, after Chinese social media began sharing a photo of Pooh and Tiger walking along side each other, right next to a photo of Jing walking with President Barack Obama.
Over the weekend, Chinese censors blocked users of WeChat and Weibo, China's bigger-than-Twitter microblogging platform, from using Pooh's name in the comment section of posts.
A meme for the ages
The likeness between the two was first noted in 2013 in a meme showing Jinping walking with Barack Obama and, next to the photo was an image of Winnie the Pooh and Tigger.
Mentions of Winnie-the-Pooh have been removed from China's Twitter-like social media platform Weibo, as the honey-loving bear falls victim to China's notorious internet censorship laws.
Authorities did not explain the clampdown, but the self-described "bear of very little brain" has been used in the past in a meme comparing him to portly Chinese PresidentXi Jinping.
In 2014, a picture of Pooh gripping the hoof of his donkey friend Eeyore was compared to a photo of Jinping shaking hands with Japan's prime minister, Shinzo Abe.

"Making Winnie a persona non grata is the government's response to a playful trend among Chinese netizens who often compare the Chinese leader to the famous bear", said the website stated.
Weibo users have already started testing the censorship imposed by the government.
"I think this is ridiculous", one Chinese college student told NBC News on Monday. Posts comparing the Chinese president to the animated bear - a longstanding joke in China - were also taken down. Some mentions of the lovable but dimwitted bear with a weakness for "hunny" have been blocked on Chinese social networks. "What the heck, give Pooh and President Xi a break!"
