Tho Nguyen is a famous YouTuber in Vietnam, who has more than 8.7 million followers.

The Department of Television, Broadcasting and E-information has asked TikTok and YouTube to remove these clips.

 

An official from the Department of Television, Broadcasting and E-information of the Ministry of Information and Communications told VietNamNet that the agency was working with the police regarding the case of Tho Nguyen.

If Tho Nguyen does not cooperate with the authorities, the Department of Television, Broadcasting and E-information will ask Google to block her channel.

Google supports blocking YouTube channels with superstitious content. These YouTube channels may even be listed as being unpaid.

The Department of Television, Broadcasting and E-information recommends that parents, if they find inappropriate content, use filters before allowing their children to watch online content.

Regarding Tho's content, Kumanthong is a household divinity of Thai folk religion. It is believed to bring luck and fortune to the owner if properly revered. The authentic Kuman Thong originated in a practice of necromancy. They were obtained from the desiccated fetuses of children who had died while still in their mothers' womb. The witch doctors were said to have the power to invoke these stillborn babies, adopt them as their children, and use them to help them in their endeavors.
