Jake Tapper Blasts Hollywood's Eagerness for Chinese Cash

Dec 6, 2021

CNN anchor also criticized NBA and tech companies for brushing aside China’s human rights abuses to expand their business

And as for Hollywood, Tapper leveled particular criticism at Disney over its decision to film its recent remake of “Mulan” in the province of Xinjiang, where over a million Uyghur Muslims have been placed in internment camps by the government. More recently, Disney has pulled an episode of “The Simpsons” that takes place in Beijing from Disney+ in Hong Kong and in which a joke is made about China’s efforts to censor any record of the 1989 protests in Tianamen Square.

“The millionaires and billionaires of Hollywood and the NBA and the IOC and Wall Street are all so eager for Chinese cash, they’re pretending none of this is happening,” Tapper said. “There is no amount of money that can buy enough soap to wash that blood off their hands.”
