@hanunyi Lobs a #fuckfbx Shoe at China's Great Firewall

Earlier today Fang Binxing, one of the masterminds behind China's Great Firewall, became the target of a student attack at Wuhan University. A disgruntled viewer lobbed an egg and shoe at him in rapid succession. Immediately the censors sprang to work, and in the process suffered the twin humiliations of making the student a hero and making Fang Binxing a censored topic. Read More

David Feng @DavidFeng
Sorry guys, but if you're in the censoring business, you're an asshole. Why do you have to hide the truth? That thing never hurts...

News about shoe thrower spreading fast, weibo trying to stop it RT @isaac: 因为过多转发@hanunyi 的消息新浪微博迅速关闭了我的 @信息线 http://flic.kr/p/9JU9TJ

Too bad the egg he tried to throw too missed RT @isaac @hanunyi at Wuhan U hit Fang Binxing, Father of the Firewall, w/ shoe during lecture.
David Feng @DavidFeng
I feel like a Triple Fatburger today. Please don't throw eggs at me. ;-)
David Feng @DavidFeng
Sina Weibo blocking accounts of those who tweet about infamous Chinese net censor who got hit by an egg during a uni lecture in Wuhan.
David Feng @DavidFeng
Oh great. Cops are surrounding Wuhan uni. This is turning into one huge political event. That's what the Chinese tweets tell.
Charlie Custer @custerwork
Wow, the shoe incident is already on Fang Binxing's wikipedia page. That was FAST http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fang_Binxing
David Feng @DavidFeng
Funnily enough, I got news of Fang being slammed with shoe, egg, anything via Sina Weibo first. Instant flick-over to the Twittersphere.
Veteran Traveler @veterantraveler
@chinageeks I thought it was an egg...They hit him with a shoe?
David Feng @DavidFeng
I think Fang got hit by a shegg. The egg missed him but the shoe hit him right where (censored). (I heard it this way. I think.)
David Feng @DavidFeng
Just censored a spammer on Twitter. That's the GOOD censorship.
David Feng @DavidFeng
Potential breaking news? China bans shoes, forcing all its citizens to go barefoot (or with socks).
David Feng @DavidFeng
In recognition of what the hell happened to the PR of C's top (censored), I'm randomly mixing in (censored) in all my tweets.

David Feng @DavidFeng
Funny. Everyone's after Fang the Censor on Twitter. Meanwhile, my Sina Weibofeed is all about stupid overtime rules at work...
David Feng @DavidFeng
It appears the only way around the #fuckGFW is to throw shoes at the thing. THAT will throw the censors off...
Kim Rathcke Jensen @kinablog
RT @JoeXu: Egg/shoe throwing happened during thesis defense with few ppl present, thus no pics or videos atm
David Feng @DavidFeng
Wuhan is big. 100 years ago, Sun Yatsen threw an egg at the Qing, in its dying leaps. And now we have what we just had.
David Feng @DavidFeng
OK, not an egg. Sun Yatsen threw an outright revolution...
David Feng @DavidFeng
What happened in Wuhan today kind of tells of what humans are naturally programmed to do on their own when they've just about had it.
Charlie Custer @custerwork
@lonniehodge threw an egg as well, but the only thing that actually connected with him was a shoe, apparently.
