Amid the controversy over the worsening epidemic in Shanghai, Dragon TV announced on April 13 that it would postpone the broadcast of its special program “Unite as One To Defend Shanghai — Dragon TV’s Special Program against the epidemic”.

Dragon TV released the program for the anti-epidemic gala on April 12, which immediately caused public opinion boiling.

Some commentators said that holding a “charity gala” in Shanghai, when asymptomatic cases in the city exceeded 20,000 for several days, was at opposite ends of the spectrum from the frontline anti-epidemic workers in Shanghai and people scrambling for food at night.

One day after the public outcry, Dragon TV responded on its official Weibo account in the early hours of Wednesday, saying that the program would be suspended and that it recognized the problem.

Netizens said that from the mainstream voice of public opinion, holding a “public welfare gala” at this time is completely formalistic, in the premise of food and clothing is not fully satisfied, nihilistic spiritual support can be said to have a negative effect, there are many forms of public welfare, special programs are the least desirable. What people really need are stable supplies and falling new numbers, not dancing and dancing.

Some netizens said that although they were looking forward to seeing the anti-epidemic program on DRAGON TV, it was understandable that the program was postponed on such a special day. They also understood what was the most important thing at present.

There are also comments that there are a lot of good intentions, but due to the inappropriate timing, good things have become negative public opinion. As a propaganda and public opinion organization, we also want to contribute to the fight against the epidemic at the critical moment and cheer up the frontline soldiers. But the moment in Shanghai is not the right one. Take warning!

“Please don’t sing about suffering! Let’s get things done. What needs to be addressed most is the survival of the People in Shanghai, not getting together. Are you celebrating the poor performance of the Shanghai protest? Someone’s hungry, and you want to watch a bunch of stars give their blessing on TV? Don’t isolate yourself from the masses! Your surname is not surname endowment!
