Popular Chinese TV celebrity Bi Fujian will face “severe punishment” after making “disparaging” comments about Communist Party founder Mao Zedong, state media reported.

In April at a private dinner, Bi a talent show host on China Central Television, was videotaped singing a Cultural Revolution-era opera called “Taking Tiger Mountain” by Strategy, and adding his own commentary about Mao between lines. He referred to Mao using a vulgar Chinese insult and also sang “he has ruined us all.”

The videotape went viral on social media sites and sparked an investigation by CCTV, where Bi had worked since 1989.

He has since apologized and been suspended by CCTV.
