Senator Hawley Requests Answers From Disney After It Gave ‘Special Thanks’ To Human Rights Abusers In Xinjiang


Republican Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley slammed Disney for thanking Communist Chinese leaders in Xinjiang in the credits of its live-action “Mulan” remake Wednesday, going on to request that Disney answer questions about the ongoing human rights abuses in the region.

Disney came under fire this week after movie-goers noticed the company offered “special thanks” to the regional authorities in Xinjiang, China for assisting the movie’s production. Xinjiang is the region where the Chinese Communist Party has forced more than a million Uighur Muslims into re-education camps. Hawley condemned Disney in strong terms.

“How exactly does giving ‘special thanks’ to the officials responsible for imprisoning, torturing, and forcibly sterilizing millions of people because of their ethnicities and beliefs align with your supposed commitment to promoting human dignity and respecting human rights,” Hawley asked in a Wednesday letter to Disney executives.
