Lady Gaga Banned From China After Meeting With Dalai Lama
Lady gaga has been banned from china!!!. The pop singer recently met with with exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama and it unleashed “anger” in the country, as internet users criticized her for meeting a man China condemns as a separatist.
A video of the 19-minute encounter in which the pair pondered issues such as meditation, mental health and how to detoxify humanity was posted on the singer’s Facebook account.
The meeting sparked an angry reaction from Beijing, which has attacked the spiritual leader as a “wolf in monk’s robes”.
The Dalai Lama, who fled into exile in March 1959, insists he is merely seeking greater autonomy from Chinese rule for Tibetans.
Following Lady Gaga’s meeting, the Communist party’s mysterious propaganda department issued “an important instruction” banning her entire repertoire from mainland China, Hong Kong’s pro-democracy newspaper Apple Daily reported on Monday.
Chinese websites and media organisations were ordered to stop uploading or distributing her songs in a sign of Beijing’s irritation, the newspaper said.
The propaganda department also issued orders for party-controlled news outlets such as state broadcaster CCTV and newspapers the People’s Daily and the Global Times to condemn the meeting.
