Popular gaming app PUBG Mobile and 117 other applications have been banned by the Information and Technology Ministry on Wednesday. The government also banned Baidu, Baidu Express Edition, Tencent Watchlist, FaceU, WeChat Reading and Tencent Weiyun, besides PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite, terming them “prejudicial to the sovereignty, integrity and defence of the nation”.

Following the announcement of the ban, netizens took to social media to express their opinion. With PUBG being a widely popular game, many also shared hilarious memes, highlighting the reactions of PUBG players. Here, take a look:
