When Lady Gaga sat down with the Dalai Lama, they talked about compassion and love, but Chinese fans of the "Bad Romance" singer are not so thrilled about their meeting. According to The Guardian, Gaga has now been added to China's list of foreign hostile forces.
The government of China is accusing the Dalai Lama of trying to separate the Tibet region from China, which is the source of much political unrest. The Buddhist leader is banned from entering the country, and Gaga's friendly chat with him makes her not longer welcome in China, risking her entire repertoire to be blocked in the country.
A Weibo user said, "I used to like Lady Gaga so much, but not a fan anymore," after seeing images of the pop star with the Dalai Lama.
It's not the first time China has banned artists: Maroon 5, Bjork and Oasis from performing in the country after they met the Dalai Lama (or spoke out in favor of him).
We hope China gets back to its senses. In the words of Gaga:
