The Chinese State Administration of Radio Film and Television recently issued a guideline to reform and rectify the entertainment industry in the next five years. The move includes providing support to stars who love the country and Hong Kong. 

The document vows to enhance the management of internet shows, livestream programs and short videos, and ban celebrities with notorious records from appearing on camera while calling for support to stars who show love to the country and Hong Kong.

The guideline released in September comes after some celebrities from the island of Taiwan and Hong Kong were victims of cyber bullying and physical attacks after they proclaimed their love for the country or support to Hong Kong police and regional government during the social unrest in 2019.
