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