Chinese Douyin influencer Feng Xiaoyi was recently permanently banned from the platform. Some believe that the ban was due to the Chinese government’s new stance against “sissy and effeminate” male celebs.
The new initiative is meant to ensure that any form of media or entertainment produced in China will “uphold Chinese culture”.
Feng Xiaoyi shot to fame on Douyin after posting videos of himself, typically dressed in a fluffly white jacket, hamming it up for the camera. In one video, the influencer, whose age is unknown, eats from a jar of canned peaches in syrup.
