Images of Winnie the Pooh are censored in China because they are used to make unflattering comparisons to Chinese Xi Jinping, such as last month when a couple held a Pooh doll at a protest at a Hong Kong shopping mall.

A University of Minnesota student was recently detained in China and sentenced to six months in prison for tweets he posted while in the United States, according to a news report from the website Axios.

Chinese police arrested 20-year-old Daiqing Luo in his hometown of Wuhan in July, according to Axios. The liberal arts major had returned home after the spring semester ended.
