Protestors in Hong Kong are calling for a boycott of Disney’s live-action Mulan after the leading actress Crystal Liu also known as Liu Yifei showed support for the Hong Kong police.

According to a translation by CNN, Yifei posted on the Chinese social media platform Weibo writing, “I support the Hong Kong police. You can all attack me now. What a shame for Hong Kong.”

Following Yifie’s post a number of folks called for a boycott of the upcoming Disney live-action film with the #BoycottMulan on Twitter.

CNN reports that Liu did receive quite a bit of support on Weibo. They reported, “Nearly all the comments on her post echoed support for the Hong Kong police and Beijing.”

Liu is not the only celebrity to weigh in on the protests. Jackie Chan did in an interview with China’s CCTV where he states, “I feel the pride of being a Chinese everywhere. The five-starred red flag is respected worldwide.”

Pop star Denise Ho spoke in front of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva in favor of the protestors saying, “The Vienna Declaration guarantees democracy and human rights. Yet in Hong Kong, these are under serious attack.”

Do you plan on boycotting Disney’s live-action Mulan film after Liu’s statements?
