Hong Kong protestors call for Disney boycott after "Mulan" star voices support for police crackdown Peterlee Aug 16, 08:40

THR's Tatiana Siegel: Disney probably won't be able to dodge. Peterlee Aug 16, 08:45

She shouldn't have said anything, but it would have been worse for Disney in China if she had supported Hong Kong. {nm} Antibody Aug 16, 08:51

That and the movie doesn't release until March so Disney's PR team should be able to manage the fallout unless she continues commenting. notfabio Aug 16, 09:11

She did make a follow-up comment in Chinese; "I don't care if you don't agree with me" Peterlee Aug 16, 09:18

By March, it'll be a non-issue compared to whatever the fallout of the protest actually winds up being (military crackdown or otherwise) {nm} StephD Aug 16, 11:22

If the military crackdown happenes, it won't be a non-issue in March 2020. Peterlee Aug 16, 11:43

She didn'/hasn't said anything about supporting Chinese military crackdown. {nm} Antibody Aug 16, 11:48

She had done damage by her comment. If anything terrible happens to Hong Kong, she won't look good. {nm} Peterlee Aug 16, 11:55

Right now, even Fox News and CNN are reporting about her support for police crackdown {nm} Peterlee Aug 16, 11:56

If the military crackdown happenes, medias will keep reporting her comment in March 2020 {nm} Peterlee Aug 16, 11:59

I doubt that. I don't think her statement will effect BO much at all in China. Hong Kong has a population of around 7.4M vs China's 1.3+B {nm} tatoufan Aug 16, 14:47

She might have actually helped Mulan in China. Again, she didnt say she support military crackdown. {nm} Antibody Aug 16, 12:26

Exactly what I'm thinking. {nm} tatoufan Aug 16, 14:05

Especially the press around her. "Mulan stands for China. So does she." {nm} Nobody Aug 16, 14:21

far be it from me to take some random redditors' word for the meaning of what she actually said but . . . professor zovek Aug 16, 08:52
