Chinese Association of Performing Arts Issues 9th Decree List of Banned Stars for Bad Conduct and Extends Ban to All Online Presence and Activity

The new 9th decree updates to 88 stars to be cancelled (some have been on earlier lists already) and also expands the control to all online activity. Not just airing of their shows or movies or dramas, this will also mean stars cannot one day try to return via small online toeholds such as SNS accounts, doing livestreams, etc. That’s a big one since online returns for disgraced stars has always been the preferred medium.
