Tencent Holdings Ltd.'s WeChat messaging application game 'Brave enough to touch the tiger's butt?' is seen on an Apple Inc. iPhone 5s smartphone in Hong Kong, China, on Aug. 1, 2014. The mere fact that WeChat's almost 400 million users can access the game reflects how discussion of Zhou Yongkang's fate is no longer taboo, and may even be encouraged, as the Communist Party builds support for a case against him.
