‘Christoper Robin’ Banned In China Because Of President’s Resemblance To Winnie The Pooh

 

That seems like more of a compliment, to me…

 

Christopher Robin opened in theatres last weekend, delighting fans across the world.

 

Not necessarily in China, mind you.

 

 

It seems that, since about 2013, folks online have been comparing the Chinese President, Xi Jinping, to the lovable Winnie The Pooh.

 

 

Another meme popped up in 2014:

 

 

Jinping’s regime isn’t fond of the comparisons, and have spent a lot of energy scrubbing the memes off the internet.

 

While this is likely the reason the movie was banned, here’s a fun fact: China only allows 34 foreign films to come out each year.

 

One way or another…Christopher Robin didn’t make the cut.
