Brad Pitt, four time Academy Award nominee and pretentious Chanel advert star, has joined Weibo, amassing over 130,000 followers in only eight hours.
What makes this more exciting than say PSY or Selena Gomez joining the Western-media’s favourite Chinese social network is that Pitt is ostensibly banned from ever coming to China due to his starring in the 1997 film Seven Years in Tibet.
While it has never been confirmed whether Pitt is officially barred from the country (though there is a Wiki Answers page about it so it must be true), his first update would seem to indicate that this is no longer the case, if it ever was:
“It is the truth. Yup, I’m coming…”
