seagog:

i’m going to take a moment to deviate from my usual posts, so bear with me: the actress starring in the 2020 Mulan remake, Liu Yifei, has just voiced her support for the Hong Kong police. these are the police who have been brutalizing protestors for several months now with batons, tear gas, and rubber bullets, and recently blinded a young medic in one eye. Liu has a social media platform of 65 million followers, and has been in the national spotlight since her casting – her words have influence and impact. her conscious decision to stand by the HK police sends a clear message: that violence against civilians is acceptable as a means of control, intimidation, and suppression.

this breaks my heart. as a person of Chinese descent, Mulan’s character was a source of inspiration and empowerment throughout my childhood, and I’m sure I wasn’t alone in my excitement to see the remake, but I’m even more saddened and disgusted by Liu Yifei’s support of the police. note that Liu is a naturalized American citizen, and reaps the benefits of freedom and democracy in the US while supporting those who are fighting to silence it in China.

if Mulan were real and here now, she would be out on the streets of Hong Kong, fighting for the fundamental rights of 7 million Hong Kong citizens. please, please, please consider boycotting this movie. skip it, pirate it, do what you need to do, but show that you won’t stand for police brutality.

Are your anons naive or just clueless to the celeb PR and social game? Her friends’ and hanger on’s innuendo game was not just living their lives. Not even close.

Idk both? I think they would like to think all Cait showed us, aside from SC lol, is just genuine…but it’s not

They want to think SC just did things for PR but Tait is PR-free…

Of course that’s not the case…

I suppose they don’t realize that for a celeb, even real events can be largely PR driven…

I imagine it bothers them because aside from the obvious in your face PR, Tait is lacking in many other aspects, which I imagine they find disconcerting…

The nagging question of “why don’t Tait behave like a normal couple?” leads to excuse making on their parts, which they take out as frustration on us for questioning things.

Ultimately, it is all Sam and Cait’s fault for making things ambiguous and just being weird af…

And I say weird af because even if SC did things just for PR during promo, well, I don’t think dropping 500k on an apt is for PR, or Cait having seemingly jealous tantrums was the best PR either…

All of this leads some people, like myself, to the conclusion that not all is as it seems bts…
