Disney has come under recent fire for the conditions surrounding the filming of “Mulan.”
According to Breitbart News, in a recently published letter, Senator Josh Hawley asked Disney to remove the movie from its streaming service to avoid the “further glorification” of China’s human rights abuses.
“Why is @Disney thanking the repressive #China secret police involved in the #Uighur concentration camps? I’d like some answers,” said Hawley.

Hawley’s letter outlines nine questions for Disney to answer. Some of the questions are as follows:
Will Disney sever its relationships with the Chinese Communist Party in response to the party’s abuses in Xinjiang, Hong Kong, and elsewhere?
Will Disney pull Mulan from Disney+ in order to avoid any further glorification of Xinjiang or validation of Chinese Communist Party officials and agencies responsible for the atrocities in that province?
Will Disney donate any of the profits drawn from Mulan to non-governmental organizations dedicated to fighting human trafficking and other atrocities underway in Xinjiang?
