Disney+ users in the U.S. may be able to stream every episode of
“The Simpsons” ever made, but apparently, that’s not the case in
China. With the platform’s launch in Hong Kong, users have
discovered that one episode in particular has been scrubbed from
the streamer — the one that mocks Tiananmen Square.
According to users, season 16 of the show offers episode 11 and
then 13, but skips episode 12 altogether. The episode — first
broadcast in 2005 and titled “Goo Goo Gai Pan” — follows the
Simpson family on a trip to China, where they visit Tiananmen
Square. While there, they spot a placard that reads: “On this
site, in 1989, nothing happened.”
Profiles in courage.
