China’s state-run broadcaster CCTV canceled the broadcast of a soccer game on Sunday after a star player criticized the country’s treatment of Muslims.

The match between England’s Arsenal and Manchester City teams was removed from CCTV’s schedule after Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil posted comments on social media about the treatment of Uighur Muslims in China.

On Friday, Ozil, a Turkish-German Muslim, called Uighurs “warriors who resist persecution” and criticized China and the silence of Muslims in response, according to a BBC report.
