Yet another program host of Passion Times have fallen victim to a strain of bizarre account suspensions by Facebook. This time happens to be Sauwai Chan, host to various programs and wife of the multi-platform new media's founder Wong Yeung Tat. Her account was suspended on January 20th for 24 hours by the social media giant. The action was based on a post she made dated back in 2014
The incident commenced when Chan posted about her forced logout of her Facebook account with the notification received regarding the result of that removed post in question. Chan furthred her explain that the post removed by Facebook pertained to an article published on Passion Time's website, which discussed the Equal Opportunities Commission's revision of the Race Discrimination Ordinance, as well as conflicts between Hong Kong and China. In its warning to Chan, Facebook explained that it will 「remove posts that attack people based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, gender or disability」.
Chan then posted on Facebook that day reporting that her 2014 post was removed by Facebook. In response, Facebook deleted Chan's new post at 2am and gave the same reason for removing the post:

Freaking hell, why are today's articles so funny? [The Indomitable Sis: I don't discriminate against Mainland Chinese; I despise them] I have never discriminated against Mainland Chinese; I just despise them. Discrimination is based on inequality, but despise is often based on a reason that makes others lose respect and look down on someone. During my trip to Tsingdao two years ago, I visited this amusement park which had just brought in a polar bear. The Mainland Chinese there were all lifting up their oh-so-precious kids, and teaching them to bang their fists against the glass windows like crazy in order to catch the bear's attention. I don't need a psychiatric expert to tell me that the bear must be severely depressed, when you have psychos banging on your glass windows day in and day out. At the same time, the penguins there looked like they were drunk as they were unable to walk a straight line, all thanks to these Chinese. When I was there, I swore I could tell what these animals were saying when they howled. They must be saying, 「Someone help me! These Chinese are terrifying!」 Isn't it scary? I just feel that we Hong Kongers are no different from those polar bear. We are being persecuted by the Chinese on a daily basis, and are stuck between crazy and almost-crazy.

Facebook removed one of my posts from 2014, then forcibly logged me out of my Facebook account……what the hell?
Just last month, Passion Times' founder Wong Yeung-Tat was suspended twice by Facebook by forbidding him from posting and commenting in Facebook groups for Passion Times' shows. Another Passion Times' host, 762, was also accused of violating Facebook's community standards and suspended from posting for 24 hours.
