Protest (Cont’d)

Although few Chinese now believe that the dragon is a divine creature, it is still tactful not to disfigure or degrade a dragon in China. Recently, an advertisement showed the famous American NBA basketball player Lebron James killing a dragon and defeating two flying women. It was censored by the Chinese government after massive public protest, including an objection from Yaó Minǵ, a Chinese superstar who plays for the Houston Rockets.
