Vietnam has banned the new DreamWorks film Abominable from cinemas because of a scene involving a map illustrating China’s claims in the South China Sea.
“Abominable, about a Chinese girl who discovers a yeti on her roof, is a joint China-DreamWorks production.
The map shows China’s unilaterally declared “nine-dash line”, which carves out a huge area in the sea that Vietnam lays claim to.
China and Vietnam have been locked in a recent standoff in the region.”
Nice try, guys, but a simple mistake completely abrogates your entire claim…

…even our idiot President knows that.
