The senators said in their letter to Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos they are concerned that Liu Cixin has "parroted” China’s communist party talking points with regard to the ongoing situation in its Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region, where Uighur Muslims have been detained in mass internment camps. Liu is the author of the immensely popular sci-fi trilogy The Three-Body Problem, which Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are adapting for Netflix. Senators Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, Kevin Cramer of North Dakota, Martha McSally of Arizona, Rick Scott of Florida and Thom Tillis of North Carolina wrote in their letter of “mass imprisonment, forced labor, thought transformation in order to denounce religion and culture, involuntary medical testing, and forced sterilization and abortion (in the province). Sadly, a number of U.S. companies continue to either actively or tacitly allow the normalization of, or apologism for, these crimes. The decision to produce an adaptation of Mr. Liu’s work can be viewed as such normalization.” Netflix has yet to respond to the letter.
