Why is China blurring men’s ears?
Chinese TV personality Jing Boran has something on his ear that authorities don’t want you to see.
In the latest episode of the popular Chinese reality TV show “I, Actor,” the young star’s face is digitally altered to blur out his earrings.
Jing, who held lead roles in Chinese box office hits “Monster Hunt” and “Time Raiders,” is not the only victim of the alleged “earring ban.” Images circulating on Weibo, China’s version of Twitter, show several other young male stars with blurred circles on their ears.
“They control more and more,” said blogger Chen Sanyi. “If a female star has short hair, will her whole head be blurred? How about banning all those female stars who look gender less and guide girls not being neither female nor male?”
