This is why Vietnam has banned the Barbie movie

The “nine dash line,” which represents China’s territorial claims in the South China Sea, also known as the East Sea in Vietnam, is depicted on a map in one of the movie’s scenes.

For the communist regime, which along with the Philippines and Malaysia also claims portions of that area, that is a massive no-no.

According to VNExpress, the National Film Evaluation Council made the decision to enforce the ban.

Actually, the Southeast Asian nation had set July 21 for the release of Barbie, starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling.

Barbie relates the tale of the dolls Barbie and Ken, who live happily in the idyllic Barbieland before being sent to the real world.

Films with the “nine-dash line” were previously banned from Vietnam on multiple occasions. Tom Holland’s action-adventure hit Uncharted was banned from theaters last year.
