In the viral video, NG asked a person from the audience where he is from, to which the man replies that he is originally from Guangzhou, China. Later, Ng makes another joke, telling audience members from Taiwan that the self-governed island is ‘not a real country’. The comedian then goes on to laugh and say that Uncle Roger is going to get canceled tonight. Ng’s Weibo and Bilibili accounts, which are China’s equivalents to Twitter and Youtube, were suspended over the weekend.

 

According to BBC, the user has been banned from posting as he has violated relevant laws and regulations. China has been cracking down on dissent since the National Security Law was introduced in 2020 to prohibit sedition, secession, and subversion against Beijing. Under China’s strict censorship system, two episodes from The Simpsons have previously been banned due to their reference to the Tiananmen Square massacre and forced labor cramps around the country. Though, this is not the first time Ng has faced China’s strict censorship laws.

In January 2021, the comedian collaborated with Mike Chen, a famous YouTuber who is a known critic of the CCP. Ng later discarded the video and issued an apology on Weibo, stating that he was not aware of his political thoughts and his past incorrect remarks about China. His decision drew backlash from activities that accused him of ‘bowing’ to Beijing. Moreover, Ng’s stand-up special will be digitally released on June 4, which is the anniversary of the 1989 democracy protests at Tiananmen Square that led to the large massacre of several thousand.
