Yang Kaili Chinese Online Star Jailed For 5 Days After Singing National Anthem Badly

Yang Kaili’s detention is the first high-profile instance of Chinese authorities enforcing the anthem law

Hong Kong: 

In America, the refusal by some NFL players to stand for the national anthem touched off a roiling, year-long national debate about racial injustice, patriotism and freedom of expression.

In China, a 21-year-old woman accused of “disrespecting” the national anthem sparked an immediate and draconian reaction: she was jailed.

Shanghai police said this weekend they punished Yang Kaili, one of China’s most-followed online celebrities, with five days of “administrative detention” after she bumbled through the first line of the Chinese national anthem while wearing fuzzy moose ears and waving her arms cartoonishly during a live stream.

The offending segment, broadcast from what looked like Yang’s bedroom on Oct. 7 to some of her 2 million followers on the “Huya” app, lasted barely 10 seconds. But it was enough to have violated China’s new national anthem law that prohibits playing or singing the “March of the Volunteers” in a “distorted or disrespectful way in public,” police said.

“The national anthem is an embodiment and symbol of our country, and all citizens and organizations should respect and defend the honor of the anthem,” Shanghai police said in a social media announcement. “Live-streaming webcast is not lawless territory and users should obey the law and uphold moral standards. The police will resolutely crack down on such behaviors that challenge the legal bottom line or public order and good social morals, in order to purify the Internet’s public sphere.”

Yang’s detention is the first high-profile instance of Chinese authorities enforcing the anthem law, which was passed last year after Hong Kong soccer fans booed and turned their backs at the national anthem when their squad played against China’s national team. Those found disrespecting the anthem can be detained for up to 15 days.

The anthem law is one manifestation of how China’s government under President Xi Jinping has emphasized nationalism and ideological discipline while cracking down on dissenting speech – or even jokes.

A Beijing historian, for instance, was prosecuted in 2016 for questioning the veracity of textbook stories about the Communist Party’s wartime heroes sacrificing themselves while fighting Japanese invaders. Another writer was punished for cracking an online joke seen as disrespecting a legendary Communist soldier who died in the Korean War. Those cases provided the momentum for the government to pass a new law last year prohibiting anything would “damage the name, likeness, reputation or glory of heroes and martyrs.”

Yang’s mistake didn’t amount to denigrating any martyrs in the Communist Party pantheon, but she nonetheless issued a profuse apology for the “stupid mistake” of hurting “the motherland, the fans, and the platform.”

“What I did has hurt your feelings,” she said. She later added that she would “perform self-rectification, draw lessons from the bitter experience, deeply reflect and fully accept education on ideological politics and patriotism.”

Yang is part of a generation of irreverent, young online celebrities that has attracted huge online followings that, in some cases, dwarf those of YouTube stars and Twitch streamers in the United States. Some easily make six-figures. But they’ve also frequently attracted the ire of the Chinese government, which has frowned upon online personalities spreading gossip and lascivious content – and getting rich off it.

Yang, known by her ironic handle that translates to “Brother Li OvO,” rose to fame covering pop songs on the live-streaming app Tik Tok, where she amassed more than 44 million followers. She later left the platform and joined Huya, which went public on the New York Stock Exchange in May.

Chandrashekhar Bawankule, Maharashtra Minister Says Online Liquor Sale To Be Allowed, Backtracks


A Maharashtra minister said Sunday that the BJP-led government had decided to allow online sale and home delivery of liquor in the state, but later stated that only a proposal in this regard had been received.

“We want to curb the instances of drunken driving. Allowing home delivery of liquor will help in this,” Excise Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule told PTI Sunday morning, without elaborating as to when the decision would come into effect.

However, apparently fearing backlash over the announcement from opposition parties and anti-liquor activists, the minister later said that only a proposal had been received.

“We have a received an application requesting framing of a policy for purchase of liquor online from home. However, the government has not thought about it, nor there has been any policy (framed),” Mr Bawankule told reporters in Nagpur.

He also said that his department recently took action against 35 liquor shops in the state for providing foreign liquor at customers’ doorstep by taking orders through certain WhatsApp groups.

Earlier, a senior official in the excise department had told PTI that increasing the revenue was also a prime objective behind the decision to allow online sale of liquor.

The government is losing sizable excise tax due to closure of around 3,000 liquor outlets located near the highways owing to the Supreme Court’s order, he said.

Also, the reduction in prices of petrol and diesel earlier this month has caused some strain on the state’s treasury, the official had added.

India vs West Indies 2nd Test Live Cricket Match When And Where To Watch IND vs WI Telecast, Live Streaming, Coverage Online

After outplaying the Windies in the first Test, confident team India will aim for a clean sweep when they take on the visitors in the second and final Test starting from Friday at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, in Hyderabad. India thrashed the inexperienced Windies team, winning the first Test by an innings and 272 runs inside three days. Skipper Virat Kohli and his team will once again look to overpower the visitors, which is unlikely to put up a challenge against the No 1 Test side in their own backyard. India are likely to stick to the same playing eleven as India announced the same 12-member team for the second Test. The only cause of concern for the Indian team management will be the form of vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane, who failed to fire in the first Test. On the other hand, the West Indies will have to come out with something special to challenge the confident Indian team. Batsmen for the visitors succumbed to the Indian bowlers in Rajkot as the team failed to touch the 200-run mark in both the innings. The Caribbean batsmen will have to show patience in Hyderabad, unlike the last Test where they seemed to be in a hurry to leave the pitch with unwanted shots. A major relief for the visitors will be the return of pacer Kemar Roach and all rounder Jason Holder, who were not in the playing XI for the first Test.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Servers Online Now: Report

It appears that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 servers are now live. The hotly anticipated multiplayer military shooter saw an early release in several regions last week and most Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 leaks since then have pertained to the game’s offline Zombies mode. Now it seems that the game’s servers are now live. However not everyone can play it just yet. You see, if you purchased a digital copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, the game won’t be playable until 12am in your timezone on October 12. But if you managed to get an early copy or if you bought it on disc from a game store ahead of time to download its mammoth 50GB patch, you’ll be able to play Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 right away. 

According to Call of Duty fan site Charlie Intel, users with early access to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 can play it online right now as servers are online. PC gamers will have to wait for the official launch time but those with PS4 and Xbox One early copies can play right away.

While an early server launch ensures stability when the game is officially out, it doesn’t help matters that those with legitimate digital pre-orders are locked out while those with leaked copies can play it right now. Not a good look for Activision particularly after its late announcement of a 50GB day one patch for the game. The company also stated that you’d need at least 112GB free space to complete the update with the final Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 install size being around 55GB.


This Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 day one update is needed to access the game’s multiplayer and Zombies modes along with what’s being described as the Specialist Headquarters. As for Blackout, its battle royale mode, it will be playable when around 30 percent of the update has been completed.

To mitigate this, stores in the US and UK will be selling Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 a day early for consumers to begin downloading its massive patch. India may not be extended a similar courtesy as multiple retailers speaking to Gadgets 360 on the condition of anonymity have confirmed that they have not got stock yet and may only receive it a night prior to its official release day or on the day itself.
