Chinese e-commerce platforms block Houston Rockets’ merchandise

China’s leading e-commerce platforms, including Alibaba’s Taobao, and Pinduoduo, have blocked products related to US basketball team the Houston Rockets, whose general manager Daryl Morey on Friday posted a now-deleted tweet that indicated support for the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong.

Online searches for Houston Rockets merchandise on the platforms turned up a message saying “items not found”.

Alibaba did not immediately respond to several requests for comment. A spokeswoman from Pinduoduo declined to comment on the issue. A spokesman from said the company had no comment on the issue.

It is not the first time Chinese e-commerce sites have blocked items due to the Hong Kong protests triggered by the city government’s now-abandoned extradition bill.
