Yundi Li is sacked by Chinese arts orgsNews
The state-run Global Times reports that the international pianist Yundi Li has had his membership cancelled by the Chinese Musicians’ Association for ‘extremely negative social impact.’
Yundi was arrested this week in Beijing for allegedly consorting with a female prostitute.
The China Association of Performing Arts declared today that his alleged behavior reflects ‘an indifference to law and a lack of moral self-discipline’. The Association has called for all members to boycott Yundi Li.
This is on the point of turning into a witch hunt.
Global Times adds: Observers pointed out that if Li Yundi’s illegal behavior is confirmed, it will be almost impossible for him to continue his career in China, as the country vows zero tolerance for fallen entertainers.
