If Quentin Tarantino disagrees with this decision he should found his own country.
From The Hollywood Reporter, "China Cancels Release of Tarantino's 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' ":
Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Bruce Lee's daughter made a direct appeal to China's National Film Administration for changes to her father's controversial portrayal in the film. Now, the movie's China backer Bona Film Group is said to be frantically working with Tarantino on a new cut to salvage the release.
[...] The film would have been Tarantino's first proper release in China, and the country's enormous market was expected to help push the title's worldwide box office total past the $400 million mark (it has earned $366 million to date). The abrupt change-up comes as a blow to both Sony Pictures and the film's Chinese financier, Beijing-based Bona Film Group.Sounds just like Big Tech in America!
But the story swirling through the executive ranks of China's film industry Friday was that the decision stemmed from Tarantino's somewhat controversial portrayal of martial arts hero Bruce Lee, the only character of Chinese descent in the movie. Friends and family of the late Lee have blasted the director for the depiction, saying the real-life action star didn't behave as he's portrayed in the film.China is a private country and they have every right to censor any film they see fit, right leftoids?
Or does that logic only apply to Big Tech oligarchs crushing little people in America?
