The NBA or Southpark? Recently, the general manager of the Houston Rockets made a tweet stating his support of democracy and the protesters in Hong Kong. China responded by banning any coverage of the rockets and threatening the growing NBA market in China. The NBA responded by immediately apologizing and trying to distance itself from the tweet. Interestingly, in the recent past the NBA has been on the front grounds of social justice and reform, but seems to shrink away from this conflict. Such a stance, has upset US politicians on both the right and the left - a rare thing they agree on.
South park has also been critical of China, comparing their president to Winnie the poo. They had this response to being banned in China.
Who handled it better?
