Beijing has banned the two musicians behind the new Mandarin pop song ‘Fragile’. Malaysian rapper Namewee and Australian singer Kimberley Chen feature in the video. The song pokes fun at Chinese nationalists, the Communist Party and even Xi Jinping. The track is littered with digs towards ‘Little Pinks’ -a term for China's online army of nationalist commenters. Rapper Namewee said he had no regrets about being blacklisted by Beijing. “To me, every country has its own laws or its own policies. When you say I am banned, I don't feel that way. I feel it's the people who can't listen to this song that are being banned," said Namewee. Watch the full video for more.
