China bans live-streams of ‘erotic’ banana-eating in bid to crack down on ‘inappropriate’ content

Eating a banana in an “erotic” manner while being broadcast on live-streams has been banned in China as part of the government’s attempts to crack down on “inappropriate” content on the internet.

Hosts of the live-streaming sites are now required to monitor all their output every minute of the day, but it is not clear how they will be able to enforce the ban.

Wearing stockings and suspenders during a live-stream is also now prohibited.
