China's patience with 'Kim The Fat' wears thin after H-bomb test
That's how one irate Chinese social media user responded to North Korea's claims to have detonated a hydrogen bomb, in a location not too far from the border between the two historical allies. The comment is typical of a large swathe of recent Chinese internet postings.
The two countries are so close that this kind of comment isn't always tolerated by censors. At one time it would have been unthinkable for China to allow such open insulting criticism of Pyongyang.
But this comment posted on Sina Weibo, China's equivalent of Twitter, by a user called kklpoo has remained uncensored and received more than 3000 likes.
Relations between the two nations have been strained for some time. And in recent days, matters have reached a new low as China didn't even receive any advance warning of the test.
The hashtags "Fourth Korean Nuclear Explosion" and "Another DPRK Nuclear Test" have been trending with tens of thousands of users employing them to express their exasperation.
