Rep. Carol Miller (R-WV) expressed objection to CBS and Paramount airing ads for Temu, an online retailer linked to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), during the Super Bowl, emphasizing the use of Uyghur forced labor in the company’s products.

Rep. Carol Miller said, “It’s an online retailer shopping company, very similar to Amazon. And it’s basically a subsidiary of the CCP, the Chinese Communist Party, linked to these holdings called PDD, and, as an American, I have a problem with this.”

“I just kind of feel like this is unacceptable. This is our game. This is the United States. And we have a committee in Congress called the House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party, and they’ve uncovered many reports of Temu being non-compliant with the laws that prohibit illicit products from entering the United States,” she continued.

“So basically, CBS will be airing advertisements to sell products on Temu that are made with Uyghur-forced labor during this year’s Super Bowl. And, as I said, it’s unacceptable. And yes, CBS has the right to air ads, but we would certainly hope that they would have the foresight to send a message to the world that they value American exceptionalism and ideals, and I’m sitting here thinking, ‘I’m proud to be an American.’ So this is, this is our game, you know,” affirmed Miller.

“So the team who doesn’t have the type of system that really even ensures compliance about the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act. So, these illegal products are entering the United States market every single day. And I don’t think Americans should be influenced by bad actors while they’re watching our Super Bowl,” explained the West Virginia Republican.

Miller insisted that, “The CCP profits from the United States, and they’re laughing at us all the while they do. It’s just kind of disgusting that we’re subjecting the American people to that $15 million worth of ads made with Uyghur forced labor. So allowing the ads to air during the most popular American sporting event is basically an endorsement of what the CCP stands for.”

“I just feel, at this point, they disregard us. They disrespect us, and we need to show China that we have the upper hand. So I kind of feel like if we were putting this in football terms, I’d say allowing these commercials to air would be a touchdown for the Chinese Communist Party against our own home team, so I don’t appreciate it,” explained the congresswoman.

Miller, along with other lawmakers, urged the media companies to refrain from airing these ads, citing concerns about the CCP’s profit from the United States and its disregard for U.S. laws.

She also highlighted the need to educate individuals about the implications of supporting products made with slave labor and emphasized the importance of upholding American values and way of life.
