The Chinese government has been heavily promoting the inclusion of Hangzhou specialties, such as dongfang, in the athletes’ village diet.
However, after Kersey posted a video complaining about the food in the athletes’ village, it was hastily deleted and a new video was posted, raising questions about whether the Chinese government was trying to force him to post a new video.
