Recode is reporting that a viral video creator in China has been banned from entering the country, a decision that could potentially send the video over the top.
The article, which is based on a tweet by the Chinese language blog Sina Weibo, says that “one of the most popular Chinese video creators” is being blocked from entering China, according to the article.
The ban was reportedly put in place over concerns that the video could be used to support terrorist groups, and that the creator could “promote terrorism and terrorism propaganda.”
The ban comes after Chinese state media reported that the videos that were posted on the social networking site were linked to terrorist groups.
According to the report, the creators were allegedly using the videos to promote their terrorist organizations.
Chinese government officials have been actively trying to combat extremism, but they’re also struggling with how to deal with videos that don’t fit with official narratives, including those that use violent imagery and incite violence.
