Zedd, a high-profile DJ and music producer, has been permanently banned from China for liking a tweet from "South Park's" official account. On Friday, Zedd tweeted about the ban, and CNBC verified the claim with his publicist on Saturday. It's unclear at the moment whether this means that Zedd has a travel ban to China. As of Saturday, his music was still available on Chinese music streaming site QQ Music.
