Disney+ has pulled an episode of The Simpsons in Hong Kong because it mentions Chinese ‘forced labour camps’, according to reports.

It appears that while it is quite content pushing divisional anti-white critical race theory conspiracy theories on children in the U.S., Disney seemingly has a problem with offending the Communinst Chinese government.

The Simpsons episode, “One Angry Lisa,” was first broadcast last year and featured a character stating “Behold the wonders of China. Bitcoin mines, forced labor camps where children make smartphones.”

Last year, Disney also pulled an old episode of The Simpsons from 2005 that referenced the Tiananmen Square massacre and the subsequent crackdown by the CCP on any documentation of it.

Kenny Ng, associate professor at the Academy of Film at Hong Kong Baptist University noted that Disney pulling the episodes is probably “to do with the company’s ties, current and future, in mainland China,” adding, “It could be strategic to eliminate any China-offending episodes.”
While China has concentration camps, it also has Disney theme parks, so best not to offend them, a policy the Biden administration seems to be fully behind.
