Ai Weiwei Gangnam tribute removed from Chinese websites

Dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei has criticised the Chinese authorities for removing his parody of Korean pop sensation Psy's Gangnam Style video from websites based in the country.

"We only filmed for a bit over 10 minutes but we used a whole day to edit, and eventually put it online at midnight," Ai told Reuters.

"After we had uploaded it, a few hours later ... we found that a lot of people, tens of thousands, had already watched it. Now, in China, it has already been totally removed, deleted entirely, and you can't see it in China," Ai said.
