Katy Perry Banned From China, Can’t Perform At Victoria’s Secret Show
Katy Perry is persona non-grata in the China. The pop songstress was scheduled to perform at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show in Shanghai, but her visa was rejected when the Chinese government found a few things that they weren’t feelin’.
First and foremost, according to PageSix back in 2015 Katy Perry performed in Taiwan’s capital city of Tai Pei while wearing a dress covered in sunflowers. At the time sunflowers were the official symbol of anti-China protesters.
To make matters worse in the eyes of China, the culturally appropriative chanteuse waved a Taiwanese flag on stage to show further support for China’s enemy.
Katy isn’t the only malevolent mayo packet who isn’t welcome in China. Model Gigi Hadid was denied entry into the country as well for various “offensive” social media posts.
White people being denied things, imagine that. Poor thing.
