Disney’s ambitious magnum opus Mulan saw its digital release last week. The film has already faced a massive backlash for various reasons. Adding to the same is one more controversy.

Apart from the government, the credits in Mulan also mention the Police Bureau of Turpan. And this has left everyone more agitated. As to at what level they have contributed in the film is still unclear, but the move is called a promotion for Human Rights abusers.

Reacting to the fresh Mulan controversy, a Twitter user wrote, “After reading about Mulan’s filming in Xinjiang its an absolute disgrace on Disney and the characters part. #Mulan stood for social justice and change. Her character sought change not oppression. #Uighur lives are no less important than others”.

Another wrote, “I was already all for boycotting Mulan bc liu yifei supports the hongkong police for their violence against pro-dem protesters, but now it turns out the movie itself was filmed in xinjiang? this whole production is such a big fat disappointment”.

Below are a few reactions compiled:
