Although the list has not been verified, according to investigations, the Weibo of Zhang Zhehan, Zhao Lixin and others have been banned. Since Zhao Wei’s works were all taken off the shelves on August 26, Weibo Chaohua has been closed. Although her personal Weibo has not been banned, the last Weibo stayed on the one forwarded on August 15.
