China's Ministry Of Culture Is Cracking Down On "Funeral Strippers"

A recent statement confirmed a "joint authorities crackdown".

Posted on

The Chinese Ministry of Culture today released a statement condemning the act of "striptease" at Chinese funerals, and has urged local authorities to crack down on the "illegal business activities... ruining the social atmosphere."

"Funeral strippers" are hired in China to attract a larger audience, which is believed to bode well for the afterlife of the deceased.

The statement mentions two cases from rural areas of China — Handan City and Suqian City — with all "participants" in both cases penalized with either a hefty fine or time in "administrative detention."
