Kodak released a statement on Tuesday apologizing for content it posted on Instagram from French photographer Patrick Wack that highlighted the mass detentions of the Uighurs in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region after backlash from Beijing supporters.
In his caption, Wack wrote his images depicted the “mass arbitrary detention system being set up in the region,” and Xinjiang’s “abrupt descent into an Orwellian dystopia” over the past five years. The Chinese government has been accused of genocide against Uighur Muslims, with reports of rape, forced labor, forced abortions and more atrocities.
But Kodak has since deleted the posting.
