Someone at WeChat had a difficult time keeping Megan Thee Stallion’s Coachella performance PG during China’s live stream of the festival. After the rapper appeared on the festival’s main stage Saturday night, users shared footage of WeChat’s attempt to cover up Meg and her dancers’ booties with a floating black box. And girl, they really tried.
Footage from WeChat showed how the social media site floated a black box around manually in an attempt to cover up Meg’s ass, her set’s protagonist. When the camera panned to show Megan and her accompanying dancers during “WAP,” the floating box frantically jumped from side to side making it unclear what exactly they were trying to block. “It’s either his first day or his last day,” commented on user on TikTok. “They struggling,” added another. “Which part of are they even trying to censor?” wrote a third.
Coachella is also being livestreamed via WeChat. Apparently, this performance not only made censors sweat, everyone was also joking that they're singing a song about Shanghai Puxi District. #MeganTheeStallion #Shanghailockdown pic.twitter.com/2ltSqzFC9c

One Twitter user pointed out that viewers were changing up the lyrics to “WAP” to “Wet Ass Puxi,” in reference to the Shanghai district currently on lockdown due to a surge in Covid cases.
Megan Thee Stallion took the Coachella Stage on Saturday night for 17 songs, including four from her Good News LP. After teasing a new track (seemingly dissing Tory Lanez) titled “To Whom the Fuck It May Concern,” Megan closed off her set performing “Sweetest Pie,” her track with Dua Lipa, “Savage,” and “Hot Girl Summer.”
