Father of Great Firewall faces 404

China Digital News has a cartoon that is circulating around China. It’s nice to know that there are people willing to take on the censorship in China so directly.

Cartoon: Fang Binxing Confronts the 404 Problem

The following cartoon is being distributed on Chinese social media networks. It depicts Fang Binxing, President of Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications who is also known as the Father of the Great Firewall, sitting on the toilet. The caption reads: “President Fang Encounters the Mysterious 404 Problem.” The “404 Problem” of course refers to the error message Chinese netizens get when they try to access a website that has been blocked by the Great Firewall.
