CBS and Paramount should not run ads for Temu -- a CCP-linked retailer -- during the Super Bowl, Rep. Carol Miller told Breitbart News.
CBS and Paramount should not be displaying ads for Temu - an online retailer that is essentially a subsidiary of the Chinese Communist Party - during the February 11 Super Bowl, Rep. Carol Miller said during an appearance on Breitbart News Saturday, explaining that this is a "Touchdown for the Chinese Communist Party against our own team." Miller is one of several lawmakers who sent a letter to Paramount Global and CBS, urging them to ditch airing $15 million in ads for the Chinese company, which uses Uyghur slave labor. "It's an online retailer shopping company, very similar to Amazon. And it's basically a subsidiary of the CCP, the Chinese Communist Party, linked to these holdings called PDD, and, as an American, I have a problem with this. I just kind of feel like this is unacceptable. This is our game. This is the United States. And we have a committee in Congress called the House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party, and they've uncovered many reports of Temu being non-compliant with the laws that prohibit illicit products from entering the United States," she said, explaining that Temu knocks off stuff Americans make and sells it really cheap using Uyghur forced slave labor. "So basically, CBS will be airing advertisements to sell products on Temu that are made with Uyghur-forced labor during this year's Super Bowl. And, as I said, it's unacceptable. And yes, CBS has the right to air ads, but we would certainly hope that they would have the foresight to send a message to the world that they value American exceptionalism and ideals, and I'm sitting here thinking, 'I'm proud to be an American.' So this is, this is our game, you know," Miller said. "So the team who doesn't have the type of system that really even ensures compliance about the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act. So, these illegal products are entering the United States market every single day. And I don't think Americans should be influenced by bad actors while they're watching our Super Bowl," she continued, calling to hold Temu accountable for its violation of U.S. laws. It is reported that it might be $15 million in ads, and Miller noted that Temu ads were aired in 2023 as well. "The CCP profits from the United States, and they're laughing at us all the while they do. It's just kind of disgusting that we're subjecting the American people to that $15 million worth of ads made with Uyghur forced labor. So allowing the ads to air during the most popular American sporting event is basically an endorsement of what the CCP stands for," the congresswoman continued.
