Hong Kong’s unloved leader has numerous nicknames like the Wolf, Lufsig, and 689 (for the number of votes that got him into power). Well, now he has a new one: Baby Leung!

This caricature of little Leung sucking on a pacifier was blocked by censors monitoring Sina Weibo before it got shared too many times on the mainland.

The image is mocking Leung’s silence over the student protests for universal suffrage: While everyone around him is urging him to talk with the protest leaders, Baby Leung just keeps quietly sucking away, presumably as instructed by communist leaders in Beijing.
