Review: Campaign GirlsHelpGirls launched after pop stars sex scandal

As several brands cut ties with Chinese-Canadian pop star Kris Wu who was accused of coercing minors to have sex with him, an industry association has classified Wu as a "tainted" and "immoral" celebrity, urging the industry to suspend cooperation with him.

Youth Committee of China Television Drama Production Industry Association said in a notice released on Tuesday that members who are cooperating with Kris Wu should timely respond to reduce losses, and those who are in the process of working with him should suspend their cooperation.

The youth committee also said it will strictly implement requirements of the National Radio and Television Administration by taking a zero-tolerance policy against immoral and tainted celebrities. 

The association, affiliated with National Radio and Television Administration, has nearly 500 members, all of which are the most powerful backbone enterprises in the production of TV dramas in China. Their output and prime time broadcasts account for 90 percent of the country's total, the official website of the association said. 

Because it is an organization affiliated with National Radio and Television Administration, Wu's ban is equivalent to an industry ban. 

Committee members should do background research before employing actors, the youth committee added. Members are also encouraged to report to the committee any suspicious behaviors, the committee said in the notice. 

One of Kris Wu's to-be-broadcast costume drama The Golden Hairpin in which Wu is the male protagonist is likely to be postponed. The drama was originally scheduled to be broadcast on Tencent Video in the third quarter this year and obtained its distribution license on April 19 this year. 

Many netizens are boycotting Kris Wu and some have urged legal intervention as the rumors continued to spread online. Several major luxury brands including Bvlgari have cut ties with Kris Wu.
