You know that it's pretty serious when Disney+ decides to drop a The Simpsons episode. 

However, while this has happened before, what's interesting about the latest banned episode is the episode concerned. 

According to Disney+ users in Hong Kong, Disney has removed an episode titled "Goo Goo Gai Pan".

What is interesting here is that the episode was released more than a decade ago in 2005. 

Many believe that the reason for this is because the episode references the "Tienanmen Square Massacre". 

The Tienanmen Square Massacre remains a controversial incident that China has been trying to keep under wraps for years. 

According to reports, several thousands died on an unfortunate day in 1989 after the People's Liberation Army opened fire at peaceful protesters.
