Did you know that eating bananas “seductively” is now banned in China?
That’s right…The Chinese government has recently decided to ban all livestreams featuring “hostesses” eating the forbidden fruit as sites with buxom young women continue to attract hundreds of millions of users. An investigation by the Ministry of Culture has deemed sexy banana-eating videos “too sexual” for a country where pornography has been banned since the establishment of the People’s Republic in 1949.
But how do they plan to enforce this new law?
Personally, I think the ban is unrealistic considering not only the millions of people streaming every single day, but also that a livestream is by definition “LIVE!” How can you possibly verify each stream before it’s even released?
But despite these obvious obstacles, the new law requires live-streaming sites to monitor for all possible banana related crimes 24/7. Sucks to be that guy.
Web-casters can make big money in China.
Young attractive cam girls can make monthly income of between 10,000 yuan ($1,500) to 100,000 yuan ($15,000) by live streaming themselves performing provocative acts (seductively eating a banana) to encourage viewers to purchase virtual items such as handbags, roses and chocolates. One of the most famous webcasters, Zhang Qige, has over two million subscribers and is estimated to earn at least 1 million yuan ($153,778) a year after revenue sharing.
It remains to be seen how this ban will affect the billion-dollar live streaming industry or if the mandate will eventually include other fruits. Cucumbers anyone?
