China Legally Bans Disgraced Celebrities from ‘Comebacks’


The Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) on Tuesday announced new regulations to control entertainment content, especially the sort of content that fuels rabid fan-worship of celebrities.

The CAC was especially determined to ensure that politically incorrect celebrities blacklisted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) never get to make a comeback.

China’s state-run Global Times unabashedly described the ban on “content that induces fans to blindly idolize celebrities, or hype the comeback of entertainers who have illegal and unethical records” as a top goal of CAC’s “negative list” – a blacklist by any other name.

The “negative list” will also ban “celebrity-related content that promotes abnormal aesthetics,” “hypes vulgar scandals,” or exposes the personal information of celebrities.
