The people of China can see the Friends reunion show, but they can’t see all of it. Government censors cut segments featuring LADY GAGA, JUSTIN BIEBER, and BTS from it.
Gaga got on China’s bad side for meeting with the DALAI LAMA. Justin once posted a photo of Japan’s Yasukuni Shrine that honors Japan’s fallen soldiers, including war criminals.
BTS has gotten under China’s skin for various offenses, including supposedly overlooking China’s contributions in the Korean War.
Speaking of the reunion show, the guy who directed it says MATTHEW PERRY was “great” to work with. He added, “People can sometimes just be unkind. I wish they weren’t. I loved working with him. He’s a brilliantly funny man, and I thought he had some great one-liners in the show. I felt just happy and lucky to be in his presence and directing him on something like this.”
