RantCrush Top 5: June 30, 2016
Welcome to the RantCrush Top 5, where we take you through the top five controversial and crazy stories in the world of law and policy each day. So who is ranting and who is raving today? Check it out below:
Last Sunday, Lady Gaga and the Dalai Lama met to discuss mental health, yoga, meditation and the world. Shortly after the meeting took place, China banned Lady Gaga, according to a Hong Kong-based newspaper. As part of the ban, Chinese media organizations have been ordered to halt distribution of the artist’s music and state-owned media has been told to condemn the meeting. Why? Because China is increasingly paranoid that the Dalai Lama’s affairs abroad are promoting Tibetan independence. China’s foreign ministry spokesman said: “We hope that people from the international community can be fully aware of his true colors and nature.” Looks like Lady Gaga and China have quite the “Bad Romance” now.
