According to Chinese media, humorous video clips and parodies of classical works of art and literature will be banned in China. Chinese lawmakers say that such content undermines the pillars of the "socialist system."
The ban will cover content produced for television and for the Internet.
Wu Jian, a Beijing-based analyst said to the South China Morning Post that the new rules mean video bloggers, entertainers and journalists will have to "make their content more serious."
"For 'extra urgent' notice like this, you have to act immediately," he said, adding that "those who don’t comply in time will immediately be closed down."
JustXiait, a team of Chinese vloggers known for the creation of satirical videos made with the use of fragments of movies has deliberately deleted its content for the sake of “self-inspection, clean-up, and improvement.”
