“It could be strategic to eliminate any China-offending episodes.”
Disney+ has pulled an episode of The Simpsons in Hong Kong because it mentions Chinese ‘forced labour camps’, according to reports.

It appears that while it is quite content pushing divisional anti-white critical race theory conspiracy theories on children in the U.S., Disney seemingly has a problem with offending the Communinst Chinese government.
The Simpsons episode, “One Angry Lisa,” was first broadcast last year and featured a character stating “Behold the wonders of China. Bitcoin mines, forced labor camps where children make smartphones.”

Last year, Disney also pulled an old episode of The Simpsons from 2005 that referenced the Tiananmen Square massacre and the subsequent crackdown by the CCP on any documentation of it.
