You're not pretty enough...

What kind of message does this send to the youth of China?  Besides that, with 1.3 billion people, they couldn't a little girl that was both 'pretty' and could sing?

It's one thing if this was some kind of corporation or private sector entity that did this, but this was the Chinese government.  Absolutely amazing...

What's even more shocking is that I'm in no way surprised by this.

That's like China building a 10 foot wall around homes and shops as part of a "beatification" project. AKA 10' wall so tourists can't see the "eyesore".

And for the record I see nothing wrong with the little girl who did the singing, it isn't like the little kid is a troll or has half a face or something.

And for the record, there was no way those Chines female gymnasts were 16+

They looked like they had just got out of pampers, graduated Pre-K, threw on a uniform, and showed up for the finals.

Yeah, I saw that...Those girls all looked closer to 10 or 12 than 16. :-\
