The star of Disney’s Mulan, Crystal Liu was met with controversy after the actress reblogged a post supporting Hong Kong police on Weibo. The reblogged Weibo post read, “I support the Hong Kong police. You can beat me up now. What a shame for Hong Kong.” Crystal’s reblog sparked outcry outside of China, especially among pro-democracy netizens. 

Hong Kong protestors, who said they will boycott the film when it will be released on March 26, 2020, were backed by many international supporters, and the hashtag “BoycottMulan” trended on Twitter.  The irony of the situation, as Crystal is a naturalized U.S. citizen. “Real ironic for a naturalized American citizen to sh*t on people fighting for freedom and democracy,” said

As an artist, she should've stayed neutral. But then again, there are many artists in this industry that likes to make their voices heard. If this is what she stands for, then let it be.
