Brad Pitt Hints at Return to China – Despite Being Banned

Looks like Brad Pitt is about to say “Ni hao” to China … in person.
The actor – who was reportedly banned from China following the government’s disapproval of his 1997 film Seven Years in Tibet, which portrayed harsh Chinese rule in Tibet – has hinted at a return to the country. And he took to social media to do it.

Via China’s version of Twitter, called Sina Weibo, the actor posted from his verified account, “It is the truth. Yup, I’m coming …”

The surprising statement is the actor’s only “Tweet” on the social network, but it generated more than 24,000 comments from his nearly 160,000 followers before being deleted later in the day.
