Chinese leaders have called for a boycott of Lady Gaga following her recent meeting with the Dalai Lama.
Gaga joined the Tibentan spiritual leader for a Facebook Live panel where the two discussed kindness, love, mental health and other related topics.
The 19-minute livestream garnered almost 160,000 likes - but don’t count any of them being from the Chinese government.
The country’s leadership has had a long, complicated relationship with the Tibetan leader over Himalayan separatism.
Many government administrators and citizens are angered by Gaga’s meeting; condemning the singer on social media where they called her “ignorant,” “stupid,” a “turtle” and “insensitive.”
Meanwhile, Chinese political leaders issued even stronger edicts: The Guardian reports that the propaganda wing of the party has banned her entire repertoire and ordered websites to stop uploading her music.
In an even more dramatic move, they also reportedly are prohibiting her from entering and performing in the country - where she has a huge fan base.
Gaga isn’t the only celebrity to be forbidden from China: Selena Gomez, Maroon 5 and Bjork have all been refused from performing there for meeting with and/or vocally supporting the Dalai Lama.
