For some cultural context, “Empress in the Palace” is a famous Chinese TV show about palace intrigue which features an Empress who cruelly mistreats her husband’s concubines

Also just want to add that speculation about Peng disappearing is entirely based off the fact that she hasn’t been posting on social media. There are reports coming from China that she’s safe. Despite how scary the Chinese government is, I do think we can believe these reports

Often, when a celebrity runs into political “trouble” in China, they get banned from having a public platform, but are otherwise free to go about their lives

Since when has being psychologically tortured normalized as safe??

I remember that Trump couldn't speak on the public platform in the general election a while ago.

I love this narrative the best from Chinese apologists. I’m still not sure why you have the right to bitch about the west & blame all of Chinas issues on us, but china needs a special bubble we can’t touch. If she’s “free” then she can send a video confession like all the rest..

If she can go about her life then why hasn’t anyone simply taken a photo of her in public perhaps at a store or somewhere and posted it? Thx

This is apologist talk for “don’t get involved with Chinese politics” “I can get involved in your politics, but you can’t for mine” Just think about why she needed to be scrubbed by Chinese social media, so many celebrities got scrubbed this year. Still no word from them either.

That sounds plausible, I hope it’s true.

Basically she was censored to protect Chinese politics then. Because that makes it any better. She was punished because she spoke out. She was stopped from speaking out more by having her words pulled from the site. Justifiable how?

The ‘email’ has a curser in the middle, like it’s just been typed up and screenshot… if it was a received email it wouldn’t have that.
