Liu Xiaoming is considered one of the most outspoken diplomats in China.

Beijing, China:

China’s embassy in London has furiously demanded that Twitter investigate what was allegedly a hack on its ambassador’s official account who “liked” a pornographic video.

The video stayed in the “likes” section of Liu Xiaoming’s account for over an hour on Wednesday, drawing a number of comments and reactions before it went offline.

“Some anti-China elements viciously attacked Ambassador Liu Xiaoming’s Twitter account and used despicable methods to deceive the public,” a statement posted on the embassy website said.

“The embassy reported this to Twitter, asking them to conduct a thorough investigation and address the matter seriously.

“The embassy reserves the right to take further action in the hope that the public will not believe or spread such a rumor.”

A Twitter spokesman declined to comment when asked to respond to the AFP embassy statement.

Liu is known as one of China’s most outspoken diplomats, taking a combative approach to defend his government in media interviews and online.

Twitter and pornography are officially banned in China, which the ruling Communist Party heavily censors.

However, China’s diplomats and journalists for the state media have set up Twitter accounts in recent years to promote and defend the government against foreigners.

Liu set up his Twitter account in October last year. He has more than 85,000 followers.
