Lay cuts ties with Samsung over "One-China Policy"

Many chinese stars have canceled their contracts with foreign luxury brands (such as Versace, Coach & Givenchy) after it was found that they do not adhere to the one-China policy and list Hong Kong and Taiwan as seperate countries on shirts they're selling.

Lay's studio has now announced that they canceled his modeling contract with Samsung because of their "global official website's lack of definition of the country and region".
He previously announced that he will "always adhere to the one-China policy, firmly maintains national sovereignty and territorial integrity and oppose any speech and behavior in various forms attempting to split the homeland" after Calvin Klein announced him as his new global ambassador.

I'm always interested in this issue with Jackson. He's not only from Hong Kong, but his parents were mainland national athletes and his grandpa a Shanghai doctor, so they all know the power of the government and yet chose to raise their kids in Hong Kong and send them to be integrated with the West. From what I can tell, Jackson is trying to dodge, but also Jackson is choosing money, business, and ambition. Maybe he believes in the one nation policy, even if by force.
