Children’s Book Publisher Carlsen Kowtows To China

A Chinese newspaper („Chinesische Handelszeitung“) with a focus on news around German-speaking countries has found mission and purpose in being offended by a children’s book. It contained the “racist” statement that the Covid-19 virus came out of China. The outrage errupted in protest letters that denounced the “disinformation” and demanded an apology. The Chinese ambassador’s envoy for the city of Hamburg got involved. A manual how to protest German companies appeared on WeChat. Yet, publisher Carlsen stood the ground … no, of course, they didn’t. They promised to change the book and to destroy all printed copies that have not yet been sold.
