Selena Gomez’s Instagram Offends Chinese Government!


Selena Gomez has been banned from China due to pictures of her and the Dalai Lama, a religious leader in Tibet, that were posted on her Instagram… two years ago. There has been “beef” between the Chinese government and the Dalai Lama due to him flying to India after an unsuccessful revolt against the Chinese government in 1959. As he continues to meet with other foreign leaders and annoying China, artists such as Selena Gomez, Maroon 5, Bon Jovi, and Linkin Park are getting on China’s bad side as well.


All of these artists have shared pictures of themselves with the Dalai Lama. Since it seems as though they are associated with Lama, they have had their tours canceled. Gomez’s worldwide tour kicks off in May but will no longer be performing in Guangzhou and Shanghai, according to Shanghaiist.com, a China-based blog.



The photo of them has been removed from her Instagram. I guess it’s true… Everything definitely cannot be posted on social media. This is just another example of how social media can ruin amazing opportunities!
