墙奸 (qiángjiān): wall-rape

This word sounds the same as the Mandarin pronunciation of the word “rape” (强奸 qiángjiān). However, the characters are different: the first character, 强 (qiáng, meaning “by force”) is replaced by the character 墙 (qiáng, meaning “wall”). Thus, the new term means that one has been screwed by the Great Firewall of China. A humorous take on this is highlighted by this fictional error message found here:

   404错误! 404 Error!
   您访问的页面正在被墙奸或已经被墙奸, 我们也不希望被墙奸, 但毕竟还是被墙奸了. 别了… The page which you are visting is being wall-raped or was permanently wall-raped, we don’t want things happen this way, but it happened anyway. See you in another life…
Made up character that combines the characters for rape and wall.
