US Senators urge Disney CEO to explain why it cooperated with Xinjiang authorities

As the controversy around ‘Mulan’ movie grows, a group of US senators has called on the CEO of Disney, Bob Chapek, to explain the movie giant’s cooperation with the authorities in the Chinese autonomous region of Xinjiang during the production of the movie.
Disney live-action remake of ‘Mulan’ is facing heat for partly being filmed in the Xinjiang region, where US senators have accused the Chinese authorities of oppression against ethnic Uyghurs.
“We are writing to inquire about The Walt Disney Company’s cooperation with elements of the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region’s (XUAR) security and propaganda authorities in the production of Mulan. Disney’s apparent cooperation with officials of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) who are most responsible for committing atrocities–or for covering up those crimes–is profoundly disturbing,” the letter by the US senators read.
In May, the House of Representatives passed Senate-approved legislation to sanction China over alleged human rights violations against the Uyghurs and other Muslim minority groups in the country. The international community has alleged that Uighurs are being held in so-called re-education camps.
Beijing has denied the existence of these camps on multiple occasions and has stressed that the country is fully in compliance with the UN’s International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.
