    Weibo Abandons Move to Remove Gay Content

    China’s Twitter-like Sina Weibo said on Monday it will not target homosexual topics during its latest “content clearance” campaign.

    On Friday evening, Weibo said it would clear inappropriate cartoons and videos that have homosexual and violent content, triggering public outrage.

    Over the weekend, millions showed support for homosexuals by using #IAmGay hashtag. The official People’s Daily in a Saturday opinion piece said that “it is common sense to respect people's sexual orientation."
