    ◎在中國當局的壓力下,Apple Music已經刪除了歌詞中指涉天安門廣場大屠殺的歌曲。數位美國國會議員對此表示Apple公司屈服於壓力,錯失了「成為全球自由的強大聲音」的機會。

    ◎1989年6月4日,當中國軍隊攻擊北京天安門廣場時,數千名支持民主的示威者被殺,還有數千人被捕。美國佛羅里達州的參議員Marco Rubio向The Verge雜誌表示,「看到美國最具創新、最有影響力的科技公司之一,在接近天安門廣場大屠殺30週年紀念日之際,支持中國共產黨政府的激進審查工作,這是可恥的。」

    ◎其中一首被禁止的歌曲是由黃霑所寫的〈人間道〉;黃霑曾證實他的歌詞指涉的是天安門廣場的抗議活動。根據CNBC的報導,Apple Music審查而刪除歌曲的另外兩名歌手是支持民主活動的何韻詩和黃耀明。

    After pressure from authorities in China, Apple Music has removed songs with lyrics that refer the Tienanmen Square massacre. Several members of Congress members are calling out Apple for bowing to pressure and missing the chance to "become a stronger voice for freedom around the globe."

    Thousands of pro-democracy demonstrators were killed and thousands arrested when troops stormed Tienanmen Square in Beijing on June 4, 1989.

    "It's disgraceful to see one of America's most innovative, influential tech companies support the Communist government's aggressive censorship efforts within China as we near the Tienanmen Square massacre's 30th anniversary," Marco Rubio, the US Senator from Florida told The Verge.

    One of the banned songs was "The Path of Man", written by James Wong. Wong confirmed that his lyrics referred to the Tienanmen Square protests. Two other singers censored by the app are pro-democracy activists Denise Ho and Anthony Wong, according to CNBC.
