Zedd has been permanently banned from entering China by the government. The producer and headlining DJ, most popular for his hit collabs like "Clarity" with Foxes and "The Middle" with Maren Morris, apparently didn't see it coming either.

South Park has been openly critical of the Chinese government for quite some time now, but the show's 300th episode, which aired earlier this week, was particularly critical with lines like, "Fuck the Chinese government." It seems as if someone from the Chinese government was monitoring Zedd's Twitter likes, though, because he claims to have been swiftly banned for liking a tweet related to the episode.

Zedd on Instagram: “‪I just got permanently banned from China because I liked a @southpark tweet.‬”
