#XiJinPooh: Filipinos troll Xi Jinping via Winnie the Pooh memes

MANILA, Philippines – Trust the world s social media capital to give one of the world s most powerful leaders its usual welcome greeting: memes. China’s President Xi Jinping arrived in Manila on Tuesday, November 20, for a two-day state visit. The Philippines rolled out the red carpet for Xi, who met with President Rodrigo Duterte in Malacañang where a state banquet was held in his honor. But it was a different form of welcome that greeted Xi online.  Before the Chinese leader s arrival, Filipinos critical of the Duterte administration s friendship with China changed their profile photos to the image of Winnie the Pooh. Recall that China has a long-standing ban on the beloved A. A. Milne character, ostensibly because of frequent comparisons made between Pooh and Xi.  On Tuesday after Xi s arrival, more netizens stepped up their game through Xi-Pooh memes.  Here, for example, Barurot News tweeted a photo of Xi and Winnie the Pooh side by side.  {source}  lt;blockquote class= twitter-tweet data-lang= en gt; lt;p lang= tl dir= ltr gt;Winnie the Pooh Bibisita sa Pilipinas Ngayong Araw lt;a href= https://t.co/SC251474B6 gt;pic.twitter.com/SC251474B6 lt;/a gt; lt;/p gt; Barurot News (@BarurotNews) lt;a href= https://twitter.com/BarurotNews/status/1064649122152538112?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw gt;November 19, 2018 lt;/a gt; lt;/blockquote gt;
