The ever ballsy Taiwanese animators behind TomoNews have pushed out their take on the recent hack attacks on the popular Chinese-language news service, Apple Daily. The distributed denial-of-service assault (DDoS) occurred at about 3:30 a.m. on Wednesday and pro-China forces were implicated in the attack.
“The attack on the Apple Daily today shows that no other media would be safe unless they, like Chinese media, delivered the same message [as other Chinese media],” the Apple Daily said in a statement on Wednesday.
“Taiwan should take heed of what is happening to Hong Kong as it is very possibly what Taiwan would face [should it become assimilated into China],” it added.
Of course the mock video wouldn’t be complete without gratuitous amounts of vomit. Check it out.
