You can't make this stuff up...
Recently, WeChat announced 70+ "common violations" on its livestream service "Channels 视频号", and urged hosts to pay attention to the rules to avoid being punished.
Let me share a few that are specifically mentioned in the announcement.
- Seductive lip licking
- Fortune telling (incl. baby gender predictions)
- Picking your nose
- Extreme sports such as bungee jumping, rock climbing without protective gears etc.
- Eating all kinds of weird items (such as socks, living things, dead things, instant noodles soaked in foot washing water)
- Putting underwear over your head
- Wearing fishnet tights
- Being topless (both men and women)
- Broadcasting in bikinis or wrapped in bed sheets or bath towels
- Displaying tattoos
- Wearing government uniforms
- Pranks and challenges that may hurt oneself or others, such as: homemade popcorn in aluminum cans, cacti in palms, performances with dangerous objects such as lighters, knives, etc.
- Any recommendations of stocks
- Involving minors to host a livestream
What are your thoughts on these regulations?
