'F9' Star John Cena Angers Fans in China for Calling Taiwan a Country, Despite Apology

Source: Variety

“F9” star John Cena apologized to Chinese fans Tuesday after calling Taiwan a country in a promotional interview, but many viewers in the world’s largest film market have deemed his beseeching appeal for forgiveness insufficient.

Speaking with the Taiwanese news channel TVBS earlier this month, the professional wrestler — who has been learning Chinese for over a decade — said in Mandarin that Taiwan would be the “first country” able to watch the latest installment of the “Fast & Furious” franchise. The release in Taiwan was originally scheduled for May 18, three days before China and more than five weeks ahead of its June 25 U.S. debut, but it has been delayed indefinitely due to a worsening in local COVID-19 conditions.

Geez, Why is John apologizing for speaking the truth? did he suddenly lost his spine like LeBron?

he should ask Chinese people why they have to use 'international' line when flying to taiwan, instead of domestic.
