Filmmaker Judd Apatow says that Hollywood has been quiet about what is going on in Communist China, because of the money it receives from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
The Daily Wire explains:
Filmmaker Judd Apatow said in an interview this week that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has managed to force Hollywood to self-censor the content it creates by buying off the industry.
Apatow made the remarks during an interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber while talking about how the industry censors content to avoid upsetting other nations.
“A lot of these giant corporate entities have business with countries around the world, Saudi Arabia or China, and they’re just not going to criticize them and they’re not going to let their shows criticize them or they’re not going to air documentaries that go deep into truthful areas because they make so much money,” Apatow said, noting that the censorship “completely shut(s) down critical content” about important issues.
“Instead of us doing business with China and that leading to China being more free, what has happened is that China has bought our silence with their money,” Apatow later added.

Of course, this would explain why in its production of Mulan, Disney thanked Turpan Municipal Bureau of Public Safety (TMBPS) and other agencies based in Xinjiang, China, where Mulan was filmed.

The company [Disney] thanks the entities, which were directly involved in the operation or promotion of mass internment camps, including the CCP’s propaganda commission in Xinjiang and a local branch of the regional Xinjiang public security bureau. The former has peddled disinformation to justify the detention camps while the latter is subject to U.S. government sanctions for its role in operating the camps.
