According to an Instagram post sent out on Thursday, the Grammy-winning artist Zedd is now “banned from China” after he simply liked a tweet from the South Park Twitter account.
The move comes after South Park was banned by the Communist Chinese earlier this week for mocking and criticizing the country.
While it’s still unknown what exactly caused Zedd to become the latest target of Chinese censorship, the DJ’s Twitter profile shows he liked a South Park tweet advertising the show’s 300th episode, which aired Wednesday night.

South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker responded to the censorship in a sarcastic statement that further mocks the authoritarian regime and also pokes fun at the NBA for recently kowtowing to China.
