Kraftwerk Denied Chinese Visas

German EDM legends Kraftwerk were just denied visas necessary to perform in China because they were slated to be part of a Tibetan Freedom Concert in Washington, D.C. 15 years ago.
The band never played the gig, since it was canceled due to bad weather, but they are still guilty by association in the Chinese government's eyes, as the Chinese Ministry of Culture officials banned the group from getting its visas, so they cannot play the Strawberry Festival, scheduled for the end of April.
What do you think of this situation?
