Luxury Brand Bulgari Bows to Chicoms After “Mistake” Listing Taiwan Separately From China on Website | Gateway Experts | by Margaret Flavin

Luxury brand Bulgari has been forced to bow to Communist China after listing Taiwan as a country, separate from China, on its website. This Italian fashion house founded in 1884 is known for luxury goods including jewelry, watches, fragrances, accessories and leather goods.

Bulgari included Taiwan on their list of countries but has now apologized for the “mistake” and the web page for accessing Taiwanese shops is temporarily down.

Taiwan has also been demoted to “territory” on the website.

The Gateway Pundit reported in 2022 that Chinese Communist Party President Xi Jinping announced at the opening of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) that the takeover of Hong Kong was complete and Taiwan next.

China claims self-ruled Taiwan as its territory.

AP reports:

“Our brand immediately corrected the erroneous store address and map indication on official overseas websites, which resulted from management’s negligence,” the Italian luxury brand said in a statement. “We deeply apologize for the error.”

Brands has also come under fire for alluding to other geopolitical sensitivities of Beijing, including its territorial claims in the South China Sea and the status of the Dalai Lama, the exiled Tibetan leader.

The Bulgari incident was widely discussed on Chinese social media, with some users demanding that the brand distribute its apology on its international social media accounts as well.

Secretary of State Tony Blinken traveled to China in June to give the communist regime the green light to invade Taiwan. Blinken made this announcement from mainland China, “We do not support Taiwan independence.”
