China banned hip-hop culture

Late January, China banned celebrities and symbols related to hip-hop generally from television.   The ban states, “programs should not feature actors with tattoos [or depict] hip-hop culture, subculture (non-mainstream culture), and dispirited culture (decadent culture),” according to a report by Time Magazine.   The country’s largest media regulator, the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film, and Television of the People’s Republic of China, also released a list of “don'ts” pertaining to hip-hop culture, and referred to the genre as “tasteless” and “vulgar”.   SAPPRFT reasons that this action was taken order to preserve the Chinese Communist Party.
