Apple CEO Tim Cook refused to answer questions from a Fox Business reporter regarding the current protests in China; Cook was meeting with US lawmakers on Capitol Hill this week.
“Shame on him,” former NBA player Enes Kanter Freedom said Friday, calling out Apple for making “billions of dollars off of slave labor from China every year”
“It is just so sad to me when these CEOs are picking money and business over their morals, values and principles,” Kanter Freedom told Carley Shimkus and Todd Piro.
Kanter Freedom has been very outspoken about China’s human rights violations —even torching LeBron James and the NBA for making money in China while ignoring the abuses.
From Fox News:
Business’ Hillary Vaughn on the nature of Apple’s business in China.
“Mr. Cook, do you support the Chinese people’s right to protest?” Vaughn asked with no response from Cook.
“Do you have any reaction to the factory workers that were beaten and detained for protesting COVID lockdowns? Do you regret restricting AirDrop access that protesters used to evade surveillance from the Chinese government? Do you think it’s problematic to do business with the Communist Chinese Party when they suppress human rights?” she followed up.
Cook says nothing.
