According to Judd Apatow, Hollywood's desire to bring home major box office wins in China and Saudi Arabia comes at the cost of meaningful and truthful content.
"A lot of these giant corporate entities have business with countries around the world, Saudi Arabia or China, and they're just not going to criticize them and they're not going to let their shows criticize them or they're not going to air documentaries that go deep into truthful areas because they make so much money," Apatow told the MSNBC host.
Apatow added that such censorship "completely shut(s) down critical content" about important stories including those spotlighting human rights issues in aforementioned countries. He went on to single out China, noting that the country's ability to block off investigative documentaries and films criticizing the nation and its leadership warrants concern.
