Its probably part of their compliance training not to do or say anything that makes the company look bad in public.

It still wouldn't have been that hard for them to stay on the fence with the whole China/HK ordeal.

Doesn't sound like generational Slavery was every really abolished. Just the legal responsibilities for the upkeep and well being of the slaves were passed onto the slaves themselves.

Very disappointing to hear.
