China Punishes Social Media Pranksters

You know how it is illegal to yell "fire" in a crowded theater? Well, in China, the same thing goes for posting zombie pictures. I'm not kidding. confused

Earlier this month, the police in the southern city of Guangzhou published a notice online that images posted on Weibo of a woman covered in blood and a note suggesting she was a zombie were fake. The online warning added a reminder for residents to avoid hallucinogens. A 21-year-old man from the area with the surname Zhang was given 10 days of detention for posting the item.
