Chris Chappell: China Uncensored banned, controversy
In 2017, Apple TV app store had blocked users from accessing the show from China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.
“Apple approved the China Uncensored Apple TV app in March 2017 for availability in most of the world, but removed it from app stores in mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan,”
Chris said, “I totally understand why we’re blocked in mainland China. We’re clearly disrupting the Communist Party’s harmonious propaganda. But Hong Kong and Taiwan are not supposed to be under Chinese law.”
He continued, “Is Apple so scared of the Chinese Communist Party that it would censor China Uncensored in Hong Kong and Taiwan, just in case? Or is Apple just confused about which places belong to China and this was all an accident?”
As the program is very critical of the Chinese Communist Party, it has raised a lot of controversy and criticism.
