Posted: Jan 20,2015
With Tencent's choice to uphold US holidays rather than Chinese ones, the trick that commemorates Martin Luther King Jr Day in the United States, drew criticism from an official Party Weibo account that took issue.
According to a Weibo message, it said that US flag icons is poured on the chat screen when the phrase 'civil rights' is typed, but it shows nothing when typing 'National Day', 'China', or 'Five-Starred Red Flag'. This all together has become an important topic of discussion and criticism among the users.
