China bans hip-hop culture and actors with tattoos from appearing on TV

China has banned hip-hop culture and actors with tattoos from appearing on television.

China

The country’s top media regulator — the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television of the People’s Republic of China (SAPPRFT) — now “specifically requires that programs should not feature actors with tattoos [or depict] hip hop culture, sub-culture (non-mainstream culture) and dispirited culture (decadent culture),” Sina, a Chinese news outlet, reports.

There were four “don’ts” that the media must now abide by, according to Gao Changli:

  • Absolutely do not use actors whose heart and morality are not aligned with the party and whose morality is not noble.
  • Absolutely do not use actors who are tasteless, vulgar and obscene.
  • Absolutely do not use actors whose ideological level is low and have no class.
  • Absolutely do not use actors with stains, scandals and problematic moral integrity.
