Disney’s live-action “Mulan” remake has been generating some buzz lately, and it’s not all good.
First, there was this:
Pro-democracy activists boycott @Disney's Mulan after its actress voices support of Hong Kong police.
"Liu Yifei openly and proudly endorses police brutality in Hong Kong, I urge everyone who believes in human rights" to boycott.https://t.co/gIDN0WEbEG

But evidently it’s not just Liu Yifei who supports China’s brutal anti-human-rights campaigns. It’s Disney, as well:
This is truly outrageous: The new live-action Mulan THANKS the Turpan Public Security Bureau (in southern Xinjiang) in the credits. That specific public security bureau has been deeply involved in the Xinjiang concentration camps.

Outrageous? Yes. Surprising? Not so much.
That’s Disney for ya.

Same company that threatened to stop working in Georgia over an abortion law.https://t.co/tHHJsnjrim

Disney has standards. They’re just really, really messed up.

The American Humane logo tells us the horses on set were treated better than the humans in the concentration camp a couple of miles down the road…

Now I’m really not watching this movie at all.

Totally, totally unacceptable. I'm moving towards a general boycott of @Disney wherever possible. What comes out of Liu Yifei's mouth is not a corporate decision. Where they choose to film is. Shame on Disney. So disappointing.

Many thanks for pointing this out.
Truly disgraceful and reprehensible

@Disney has some serious explaining to do.
— Marlena Papavaritis (@MarlenaPapa24) September 7, 2020
What’s to explain? Disney bends over for China. End of story.
And they’ll continue to do so because let’s face it: there really won’t be any negative consequences for them.
And not a single person will cancel their Disney + over this. This is the most amount of outrage people will muster. https://t.co/u2uYAdBdXC
