A Taiwanese boy interviewed by the YouTube channel 486 Street Polls revealed that his Douyin account was banned after he fat-shamed Chinese President Xi Jinping.
In the video uploaded on Monday, the interviewer asked several individuals about their opinions on the restaurant theory made by China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunyin. On Aug. 7, Hua claimed in a tweet that “Taiwan has always been a part of China” as Baidu Maps show numerous dumpling and noodle restaurants in Taipei.
“Baidu Maps show that there are 38 Shandong dumpling restaurants and 67 Shanxi noodle restaurants in Taipei,” Hua wrote. “Palates don’t cheat. #Taiwan has always been a part of China. The long lost child will eventually return home.”
One of the people interviewed for the video, an unidentified boy, stated that Hua was “probably just talking nonsense.” He was then asked whether Douyin videos often mention Taiwan or Hua’s restaurant theory. The boy, however, revealed that his account was banned after he called Chinese president Xi Jingping a “fatty.”
