Activist Joshua Wong “trolls” Chinese censors after players blamed him for banning Animal Crossing


Hong Kong pro-democracy activist Joshua Wong shared photos of him playing Nintendo’s Animal Crossing after Chinese players criticized him for banning mainland video games.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons disappeared from Chinese Taobao and Pinduoduo platforms last week, Reuters reported. The secretary general of the pro-democracy group Demosisto said he was a fan of popular games and had received death threats from internet users on the continent after the dismantling.

Joshua Wong is holding a Switch console that displays the protest slogan “Free Hong Kong, the revolution of our time” in Animal Crossing.

The simulation allows users to create tools, decorations and other creature comforts from scratch on their character’s desert islands.
