north korea reddit Yes, the North Korea Subreddit Is Fake

Your one-stop destination for Kim Jong Un fat jokes.

The r/Pyongyang subreddit is up to 5,827 comrades. Considering the North Korean government has an official YouTube channel and Twitter page, a Reddit presence seemed vaguely plausible. But what is more plausible is that Redditors, who deeply, passionately love to make fun of North Korea, created a subreddit for more perfect pillorying. A recent article, “Women’s Grand Performance Marks Day of Sun,” got 926 comments, almost all of which have been deleted by the admin.
