The controversy over Yang Li’s statements highlights the difficult path of feminism in China.

China’s queen of jokes, Yang Li, is no stranger to controversy.

The 29-year-old is now one of the best-known comedians in the country, after rising to fame in recent months on a Chinese television show called “Rock y Rostizado.”

Every week, in front of a national audience of millions, he tackles controversial genre issues using a style unknown to many Chinese viewers: “stand-up” or stand-up comedy.

He has attracted a large following, but his jokes have not gone down well with everyone, and now Yang faces the biggest negative reaction of his career.
