Google leaves China for Hong Kong

    China, predictably, rants about it.

    BEIJING–Bruised and embarrassed on the international stage, the Chinese government reacted with rage Monday after Internet giant Google announced it would shut down its mainland China search engine rather than continue to censor user searches as demanded by Chinese authorities.

    Mainland Chinese Google users now will automatically be redirected to the company's uncensored version in Hong Kong.


    "We firmly oppose politicizing commercial issues and express our dissatisfaction and anger," a government spokesperson told the state-controlled news agency Xinhua Monday.


    Fuck you, China.

    And good for Google for finally standing up and putting class before cash.
