Chinese Government Bans Winnie the Pooh Because, Communism


Communism: Where the government controls every little aspect about your life, including what movies you can and cannot watch.

Disney’s newest film, Christopher Robin, hit theaters in the U.S. on Friday, but in communist China, citizens will be unable to see the beloved Winnie the Pooh — because their government said so, a source tells The Hollywood Reporter.

The Chinese authority’s discomfort with Winnie the Pooh started last summer, when they began banning internet images of the yellow bear, who they believed was becoming a sign of resistance to the ruling Communist Party.

What exactly made Pooh a sign of resistance? People were hilariously comparing him to Chinese leader Xi Jinping. In one specific instance, the Chinese government banned HBO nationwide after "Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver joked of Jinping’s similarities to the cartoon character.

Chinese authorities are denying the reasoning behind the ban, saying it was simply because they have enough films in theaters, but anyone with knowledge of how communist regimes work knows that to be complete nonsense.

Nobody and nothing is safe as far as communism is concerned — not even Winnie the Pooh.
