Ted Cruz Launches Bizarre Rant Over Freddie Mercury’s Level Of Gayness In Chinese Version Of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’
As the nation grapples with a devastating pandemic, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz showed up at Fox News to complain that homosexuality is not being promoted enough in China, slamming Hollywood for allowing the Chinese government to censor Freddie Mercury’s sexual orientation in the movie “Bohemian Rhapsody” that was shown in China.
During the interview, Cruz revealed that he is sponsoring new legislation to punish Hollywood studios who cooperate with Chinese censorship requirements.
“It really is tragic that Hollywood has been willing to, over and over again, to kowtow to Chinese communists and let the Chinese government censor American movies,” Cruz opined.
Referring to a character in Top Gun, the senator complained: “We’re saying Maverick is afraid of the damn Chinese communists.”
“And Bohemian Rhapsody!” Bartiromo interrupted. “The Chinese communist government wanted them to edit out part when [Freddie Mercury] was gay? How do you tell the story of Bohemian Rhapsody and not say that Freddie was gay?”
“You don’t,” Cruz insisted. “But Hollywood was more than happy to edit the scene out. They did it because the Chinese government didn’t want to acknowledge that Freddy Mercury was homosexual. Look, that’s a huge part of the story!”
“The problem is Hollywood is more interested in making millions of dollars from the Chinese market than they are in free speech, than they are in artistic integrity,” the senator added.
Under Cruz’s legislation, Hollywood studios would not be allowed to use military equipment in their movies unless they stopped allowing censorship in China. It was not immediately clear why Cruz believes that this a pandemic is the best time to launch his anti-China bill while the country.
