Man protests China's erotic banana eating ban

In China's newest nanny state ruling, no person can be seen in a live-stream eating a banana seductively.

The "erotic" eating of the fruit is part of Chinese government attempts to crack down on "inappropriate" internet content.

It is not sure how the ban will be enforced, but all live-streaming content must now be monitored 24/7 to ensure output is acceptable, the BBC has reported.

One man has come out in protest of the ban, eating a banana covered with chocolate sauce outside of the Chinese embassy in London.

"We are protesting the fact that you are not allowed to eat bananas sexually," he said in the clip.

Wearing suspenders and stockings is also reportedly now banned on live-streaming sites.

Many wonder if live-streamers will just chose another fruit or vegetable to eat, with cucumbers high on the list.
