China’s censors have changed the ending of animated film “Minions: The Rise of Gru” so that good triumphs over evil, in the latest example of a Hollywood movie being twisted in the country to send a more palatable social message.
In the Chinese version, the “special edition” ending says supervillian Gru gave up his life of crime and returned to the straight-and-narrow, with his biggest accomplishment being “father to his three daughters.”
In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
