Anti-pornography authorities in China ordered the removal of amateur sex videos from the country’s social media Thursday, according to the Associated Press (AP). The crackdown comes almost a month after a porn video was filmed inside a changing room of Uniqlo clothing store in Beijing.

The Office Against Pornography and Illegal Publications ordered the deletion of pornographic content after two sex videos went viral Wednesday on Chinese social media. Clips of sexual scenes were aired on a large screen at a shopping mall in the eastern city of Lishui in Zhejiang province, following which it quickly spread on the Internet, the AP reported, citing media reports. The incident prompted police investigation.

On the same day, a homemade footage of sex in the southwestern city of Chengdu in Sichuan province went viral on Weibo, China’s version of Twitter. Police took one suspect in custody for allegedly uploading the video, local authorities reportedly said.

The anti-porn office said the Uniqlo case also triggered them to order the removal of such videos. The office said it wanted government authorities across China to take swift action whenever such incidents happen, the AP reported. It also called for "resolutely" punishing those who upload and spread such videos.

The office also urged public to report such content through a hotline. It reportedly alleged that such videos were ruining social decency, disrupting online order and crushing moral standards and the law.

In July, police arrested four people on suspicion of spreading the Uniqlo sex video. At the time, the Cyberspace Administration of China, the country’s online watchdog, said the video was "against socialist core values."

In China, people found guilty of circulating obscene books, films, pictures and video clips can be jailed for up to two years.
