“I just got permanently banned from China because I liked a @southpark tweet,” Zedd wrote. He later added, “Just to clarify, this is NOT a joke. The government informed our promoters that if they don’t cancel my scheduled shows in China they would pull their cultural permits.”
Zedd‘s publicist confirmed the news to CNBC, saying, “This is true, yes, but we don’t have anymore info to give you at this time.”
The news comes just days after South Park was scrubbed from the internet in China following the airing of the “Band in China” episode.
