Swedish satirical show’s toilet jokes spark ‘diplomatic crisis’ with China

An episode of a Swedish show, mocking Chinese tourists and advising them not to ‘poop’ in public places, has angered Beijing. After China’s furious statement, the host said that his show might have sparked a “diplomatic crisis.”

The Svenska Nyheter political satire program, broadcast last week by Swedish national broadcaster SVT, struck a nerve with the Chinese, as the show featured a ‘guidebook’ of ‘do’s and don’ts’ for Chinese visitors.
