Celebrities are usually loved around the world, but here are 10 famous celebrities, such as Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, and Lady Gaga, who have been banned from China for such ridiculous reasons that even we are having a hard time believing.
The American pop-singer was banned from China after she met the Dalai Lama to discuss yoga. The conference occurred in Indianapolis on June 26, 2016.
The “Poker Face” singer posted the meeting on her Facebook as well as on Instagram.
China is not a fan of the Dalai Lama and was not amused upon seeing the meeting between the two.
China immediately blocked all her songs, requiring all media in the mainland and the entire network to stop playing and uploading all of Lady Gaga’s music in real time, according to Hong Kong’s AppleDaily newspaper.
Lady Gaga isn’t the only celebrity who’s interaction with the Dalai Lama has landed them on China’s blacklist.
2. “Wizards of Waverly Place” Actress Selena Gomez
The former Disney star met the Dalai Lama at the 2014 “We Day Vancouver” event.
The “Hotel Transylvania” star didn’t feel the effects until two years later when her Revival tour dates for China mysteriously vanished off her website.
