Are **** **** *********? Yes.

Is *** **** ********* **** *** *****? Yes, of course, one company is majority owned by the PRC, a regime that commits crimes against humanity.

Is **** * ****** ** ****** *** *******? No. Unethical is unethical. Any decent company should view a business relationship with either a risk to their reputation.
