One week after 60 social media accounts were shut down for disseminatingunsubstantiated commercial speculation and vulgar content, debate over the clampdownstill lingers on social media, occupying the headlines of many media outlets.

The crackdown, aimed at social accounts that spread rumors, celebrity gossip andvulgarity, was initiated by the Beijing Cyberspace Administration on June 9 in an effort touphold socialist values, as well as clean up the online environment. Accounts likePaparazziZhuoWei, who claimed to be China’s No. 1 paparazzo and had over 7 millionfollowers, were immediately closed. The censorship affected seven major social mediaplatforms in China, including Sina Weibo and WeChat.

It really disappoints me that I can see all sorts of sexual content in advertisement on Chinese websites. You'd think Chinese society was more humble, and wouldn't do such a thing.

I don't care so much for the crackdown, but I wonder why people would do such a thing in the first place. I really thought Chinese people were above that kind of vulgarity.

Because I used to watch old Chinese movies and there were never any sexual content, as opposed to what you can find in western movies. ...It used to be something I was proud of.
