Axios’ Bethany Allen-Ebrahimian shared this email she received from the U.S.-based LinkedIn informing her that the company will be censoring her profile to readers in China due to “the presence of prohibited content” located in her profile.

“I used to have to wait for Chinese govt censors, or censors employed by Chinese companies in China, to do this kind of thing,” she tweeted.  “Now a US company is paying its own employees to censor Americans”:

This isn’t a good look, LinkedIn:

Companies need to take a stand, now:

Because “this is obscene”:

But the “influence that Communist China is holding over American corporation is only deepening”:

Yeah, maybe this wasn’t such a great idea after all:
