Hong Kong protestors call for boycott of Disney’s ’Mulan’

The hashtag #BoycottMulan is trending worldwide after Disney’s upcoming live-action ’Mulan’ remake star Liu Yifei voiced support for the police crackdown in Hong Kong this week. ’I support the Hong Kong police. You can all attack me now’, Yifei posted on Weibo, a Chinese social media platform. Twitter users around the world accused the actress of supporting police brutality.

Hong Kong is pretty much done. The West can't afford to give it any tangible support, sanctions can't do anything against them due to a wide anti-Western trade network as well as the people over there already being used to barely living and not even feeling any economic fluctuations, while modern UK barely qualifies as a little village in China's eyes which is why they pissed all over the 50-year agreement. The question to ask now is whether she was threatened with her family in China to come out in support of the government, whether she chose to do so herself preemptively due to a political instinct to safeguard her own family because she sees political maneuvering against Chinese personalities outside of China following this ordeal, or whether she truly believes what she's saying. I'd go for one of the first two answers given the wording she used.

Wasn't gonna see it anyway. All these live remakes are stagnating the industry. Also, screw the commies. Freedom for Hong Kong!

Disney is very openly pro abortion, not sure how that is less controversial than this. Regardless of your political beliefs it's not great idea to piss off a large percentage of your customers. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/amp/news/disney-may-pull-georgia-new-abortion-law-enacted-1214329

Why do actors and actresses feel the need to jeopardize their movies by coming out with this shit? Their opinion isn’t going to help anything and only risks their projects

Nobody should be surprised. Children are trained to conflate the CCP and being Chinese, so they're indoctrinated to support authoritarianism and view criticism of the CCP as an affront to China, and treason if done by a fellow citizen. Student associations in western nations push their politics on the campus such as trying to stop a visit by the Dali Lama, they report on eachother which is why students will freak out as if you called them a slur if a professor calls Taiwain a country, and the Confucius language institutes insist on being on campuses along with offering funding so they can serve as espionage outposts and exert further political influence on campuses. The mere fact the CCP has to give permission to tourists bc of their dismissal of any other culture and it's norms, demonstrates the sino centrist supremacism most citizens are trained to hold, and conflate with the CCP.
