Attorney General Bill Barr blasted Hollywood and its leftist celebrities during a speech where he highlighted China's growing influence on the industry.

“Every year at the Academy Awards, Americans are lectured about how this country falls short of Hollywood’s ideals of social justice," Barr said during his address at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum in Michigan.

"But Hollywood now regularly censors its own movies to appease the Chinese Communist Party, the world’s most powerful violator of human rights,” Barr added.

Barr also criticized Hollywood’s obsession with China’s box office.

Hollywood studios must submit their movies to Beijing’s censors to access to China, which limits the number of foreign titles played in China.

Barr also said that Hollywood is also giving China access to U.S. technology and industry know-how.

Barr noted that eight of the ten top-grossing films in China last year were produced in China.

“In the long run, as with other American industries, the PRC [People’s Republic of China] may be less interested in cooperating with Hollywood than co-opting Hollywood—and eventually replacing it with its own homegrown productions,” he said.

Movies including Disney’s Doctor Strange have gone to extreme lengths like writing out references to Tibet and Taiwan in order to get the China ticket.

“This censorship infects not only versions of movies that are released in China, but also many that are shown in American theaters to American audiences,” Barr said.

“But many more scripts likely never see the light of day, because writers and producers know not to even test the limits," Barr said.

"Chinese government censors don’t need to say a word, because Hollywood is doing their work for them. This is a massive propaganda coup for the Chinese Communist Party.”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) also cirtised Hollywood for cozying up to China.

In may, Cruz introduced legislation blocking federal assistance to studios pandering to China's demands.

Last year, Neon Nettle reported that former Vice President Joe Biden played a crucial role in helping Hollywood gain access to the lucrative Chinese box office.

The L.A Times wrote at the time:

“Several of the candidates vying for the Democratic presidential nomination have significant support in Hollywood — [Jeffrey] Katzenberg, for example, has kicked in $2,800 each to 14 of them already — but none has as long a history of delivering for the industry as Biden."
