China says will more tightly regulate celebrities' online information

SHANGHAI (REUTERS) – China’s cyberspace regulator said on Tuesday (Nov 23) that it will more tightly regulate the online information of celebrities, including the publishing of their personal details and the placements of their advertisements on Internet sites.

The Cyberspace Administration of China said this was aimed at creating a positive and healthy Internet environment. 

It described the proliferation of gossip and star-chasing as impacting mainstream values.

The Chinese authorities in recent months have moved to dampen what they have called the country’s chaotic celebrity fan culture, ordering broadcasters, online platforms and artists to help curb the phenomenon.
