Mulan Actress DGAF About Boycotts Over Her Support for ‘Police Brutality’ in Hong Kong

Despite fans calling for a boycott of Disney’s “Mulan,” lead actress Liu Yifei has confirmed her stance on the Hong Kong police controversy.  

 

In her post on Weibo last week, the 31-year-old actress shared her short, but straightforward response.

“If you are not like-minded, then leave,” Liu wrote in the post followed by a smiley emoji as translated by Shanghaiist.

The Chinese American actress’ comment came a day after she shared a post from China’s state-run publication People’s Daily on her Weibo account, proving her stance on the Hong Kong demonstration.

In the post, the publication wrote in Chinese characters, “I support Hong Kong’s police, you can beat me up now” and “What a shame for Hong Kong” in English below it.

In addition, Liu added the hashtag “#IalsosupportHongKongpolice” in her post, causing fans to call for a boycott of “Mulan.”

Here’s what some of them wrote on Twitter:

Liu is only part of a large movement of Chinese artists voicing their support for the Hong Kong police, after a journalist from Chinese nationalist tabloid Global Times, Fu Guohao was allegedly assaulted by Hong Kong protesters who mistook him for an undercover cop.

Many Chinese rappers rallied together on social media to express their patriotism including Higher Brothers members Melo and DZ Know, PG One, Miss Vava and After Journey.

Disney has yet to release any statement regarding Liu’s posts online.
