China Bans Celebrities From Showing Their Wealth on Social Media

Celebrities in China have been banned from flaunting their wealth on social media in the latest crackdown on the entertainment industry.


On Tuesday, 22nd November 2021, the Cyberspace Administration of China announced that celebrities in the country will not be able to show off ‘wealth or extravagant pleasure’ on social media.

According to the Cyberspace Administration, one of its new rules is that celebrities cannot publish false or private information, provoking fans against other fan groups and spreading rumours.

Business Insider also reports that social media accounts of both celebrities and fans will be required to adhere to ‘public order and good customs, adhere to correct public opinion orientation and value orientation, promote socialist core values, and maintain a healthy style and taste’.

The new rules comes following a crackdown on celebrity culture in China as the country continues to strengthen its grip on the entertainment industry.
