changing room of a Uniqlo store in the capital.

The clip rapidly spread on China’s Twitter-like Weibo and
mobile messaging service WeChat, with scores of people taking selfies
outside the outlet, some mimicking the poses seen in the footage.
Police
held the couple on Wednesday night, just hours after the footage went
viral, media said Sunday, citing an earlier report by state-run
broadcaster Television.

“Five people were taken away by police including the man and
woman who played the main role,” the channel said in a report broadcast
late last week.
“The police investigation has two main parts: who
published this unsavoury video, and was it an example of hype by the
business (Uniqlo),” it added.
China’s online regulator the
Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) said late Wednesday that
distributing the footage was “against socialist core values”.
The
CAC ordered senior managers of Weibo’s operator Sina and Tencent, owner
of WeChat, to cooperate in an investigation, the agency said in a
statement.
China’s Communist Party oversees a vast censorship
system – dubbed the Great Firewall – that aggressively blocks sites or
snuffs out content and commentary that is pornographic, violent or
deemed politically sensitive.
Popular social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter are inaccessible in the country, as is YouTube.
