Last month, Michelle Yeoh (Yeung Chi King) attempted to enter Myanmar but upon arriving at the Yangon International Airport the authorities stopped her and immediately deported her. Local officials declined to reveal the reason. However reportedly perhaps due to her performance in French director Luc Besson's new film THE LADY as Aung San Suu Kyi the Myanmar government blacklisted her.
At this sensitive moment, THE LADY again released all new photos online, including even more controversial politic scenes in which Aung San Suu Kyi not fearing the violent oppression as she faced a group of soldiers with guns. The film creators seemed to intend on responding to the Myanmar government's blacklisting of Yeoh and issued the sensitive photo to remind many of Aung San Suu Kyi's past brave behavior.
