Initially, China denied the camps existed before switching to describing them as voluntary re-education centers.
Even before the latest Xinjiang controversy, the hashtag #BoycottMulan has been trending in recent weeks in Hong Kong, Thailand, and Taiwan.
Activists in all three places have launched multiple online campaigns critical of China's authoritarianism.
Dubbed the "Milk Tea Alliance" — named after a shared love of the drink — they seized on social media comments made last year by actress Liu supporting Hong Kong's police.
They have also noted the resemblance of actor Tzi Ma, who plays Mulan's heroic father, to China's leader Xi Jinping.
After her arrest last month under Beijing's new security law, young Hong Kong dissident Agnes Chow was dubbed "the real Mulan" by supporters.
