Disney Plus Drops Simpsons Episode Set In Hong Kong

Disney+ users in Hong Kong have discovered that an episode of The Simpsons has noticeably disappeared off the platform. According to Deadline, it is not clear whether the episode was removed by the streaming service or if it was ordered to by the authorities.

The 2005 episode that has been pulled comes from Season 16, titled "Goo Goo Gai Pan," features the animated family visiting Tiananmen Square in Beijing. As presented in the original episode, the landmark has a plaque that reads: "On this site, in 1989, nothing happened." The episode also features jokes about Mao Zedong, a Chinese community revolutionary who was the founding father of the People's Republic of China.

Concerns about censorship have grown rapidly in Hong Kong since last year, when Beijing imposed a sweeping national security law to quash monthslong anti-government protests. However, as of this writing, Disney has not provided a comment confirming whether this episode's disappearance is an example of acquiescing to censorship.
