“Simpsons” Episode Missing In Hong Kong

Simpsons Episode Missing In Hong Kong

An episode of “The Simpsons,” in which the family visits China, is notably absent from the local version of the Disney+ service in Hong Kong where the series was made available earlier this month.

The show’s Season 16, Episode 12 episode “Goo Goo Gai Pan” has the family going to China after Selma lists Homer as her husband in order to adopt a Chinese baby (with Marge posing as their live-in nanny). The episode features a scene in which the family visits Tiananmen Square.

According to the trades it is not yet clear if Disney+ removed the episode voluntarily or if it was ordered removed by the authorities. A new censorship law that was introduced earlier this year forbids shows that might breach a national security law imposed by China.
