Obviously, the CCP prepared her statement as it did recently with the purported Peng Shuai statements. Pretty spooky.

Can we see the pic or is it censored here too ?

Thuggery. When a government starts coming after its fashion photographers, you know that breathing space is getting pretty tight.

It isn’t too shocking that countries that have no protections for speech in place can punish its people.

Is anything China does to its people shocking to anyone anymore?

The bureaucratic editors of a government mouthpiece freely enjoy pulling down and bullying megastars. What a bitter-sweet sense of omnipotence. In Europe they might have chopped her head off a few centuries ago.

You know that an authoritarian regime is feeling the heat when they get angry at fashion photographers. This thin-skinned nature of the CPC over what they perceive as threats to Chinese 'dignity' is growing worse than it was under Mao. There is an entire internet for them to police, which makes it impossible.

I wonder how many thousands of censors the CPC has working for it...

Fortunately, the United States has a First Amendment that forbids the government from punishing people for "offensive" writing

This is inaccurate unless you want to define “offensive.”

Defamation is not protected speech, but is offensive.

Obscenity is not protected speech, but is offensive.

Fighting words are not protected speech, but are offensive.

Nope. You claim to have a bar number, you should be able to do the research yourself to discover the error you made.

Chen Man acknowledged the criticism of her earlier work, including “Young Pioneers,” a series of images of a young model with backdrops of major landmarks such as China's massive Three Gorges Dam or with an image of the country's first lunar orbiter flying out from under her dress

Incredible that a government can punish its people for expressing their thoughts in a form of speech.

Fortunately, the United States has a First Amendment that forbids the government from punishing people for "offensive" writing and thought crimes.

Unfortunately, the United States has a leftist media that pursues a cancel culture that punishes anyone expressing their opinions.

Oh, I see. You got confused.

Read my original post and you will discover the error in thought you made.
