Celebrities in China can no longer “show off wealth” or “extravagant pleasure” on social media, the Cyberspace Administration of China announced Tuesday.

Both celebrity and fan-club accounts must “follow public order and good customs, adhere to correct public opinion orientation and value orientation, promote socialist core values, and maintain a healthy style and taste,” China’s internet-regulation agency said in a statement.

The announcement follows the Chinese Communist Party’s crackdown on the country’s growing entertainment industry as officials push back against celebrity scandals and online fan groups it says cause social disorder.
