“People don’t want to know that when they hug Bing Dwen Dwen, they hug a stranger,” the Weibon user commented before the censorship struck.
Beijing the Winter Olympics mascot Bing Dwen Dwen, or transliterated, Bing Dun Dun, has disappointed Olympic lovers in China.
The reason is in the voice of the pandamaspot. The South China Morning Post saysthat Bing Dun Dun spoke on a TV broadcast last week. The voice was the voice of a man wearing a panda costume, which was disappointing in relation to expectations. The man dressed in the outfit also revealed his face in the broadcast.
For example, in the Chinese social media service Weibo, attention was paid to the combination of voice and mascot face.
“People don’t want to know that when they hug Bing Dun Dun, they hug a stranger,” commented one Weibo user, according to the SCMP.
In the face of face-to-face disclosure, many people referred to Disney’s strict practices that disclosing one’s own face as a mascot is a breach of contract.
SCMP according to Weibo quickly censored the topic #BingDwenDwenstartstalking, but criticism of the post is still visible in the service.
According to the rules of the International Olympic Committee, mascots should be gender neutral and not talk.
Bing Dun Dun has been a popular mascot. Last week, it was reported that the mascot has been sold from many places to the end and the most eager even queued overnight to get the mascot.
