An actress went to Chinese New Year in blackface and it ruined people’s celebrations | indy100 – The intention behind the segment was to show how positive relations between China and Africa have grown thanks to Chinese investment in the African continent – but it backfired massively.

A Chinese actress sporting blackface and a fake backside was accompanied by a person in a monkey outfit on stage, but rather than provoking humour it was greeted with criticism online.
