Your political opinion might hurt those who have different opinions or those who simply want to enjoy sports and get away with dirty politics. Athletes/Actors are not politicians as well, they are not more professional than others.
"Will no one think about poor China and their hurt feelings?"

I'm not simply talking about this incident, it's my overall stance against such things. I don't like Trump but I don't think the athletes should express their anti Trump opinion on the field.
Your stance is abhorrently illiberal, whether that is classic liberalism or progressive liberalism.

The NBA was all about supporting their players taking political stands until a GM for the Houston Rockets made a pro-Hong Kong tweet. So clearly it's about appeasing Chinese autocrats just as it is here too.
