China blocks 'Ferrari' searches to suppress rumours of politician's son being involved in car crash

Beijing, Wed, 21 Mar 2012 ANI

Beijing, Mar 21 (ANI): China has reportedly banned Internet users from searching the word Ferrari to suppress rumours that the son of a senior politician was killed in high-speed car crash.


The ban came after speculation that a young man killed on Sunday after his Ferrari 458 split in two in Beijing, was in the son of senior Communist party official.


All references to the Italian super car company were later mysteriously removed from China's online search engines, The Daily Mail reports.


It was also rumoured that two female passengers were also seriously injured in the high-speed crash, even though the Ferrari is strictly a two-person vehicle.


The Beijing Public Security Bureau refused to give media any information about the crash.


China's social media websites went into overload following the smash with people desperate to find out the identity of the driver.


But nearly all content related to the crash has now mysteriously vanished with Ferrari banned as a search term on the nation's search engines, the report said.


Weibo, China's equivalent of Twitter used by 300 million people, removed all posts mentioning the accident and blocked online searches of the word Ferrari.


According to the paper, the speculation over the driver's identity could lead to awkward questions being raised about how a civil servant could afford to buy his son one of the world's most expensive cars. (ANI)
