Maybe in a communist nation, that treasures core socialist values, there shouldn’t be super rich celebrities…

If this was really about socialist values they wouldn’t let them accumulate that much wealth. This is about the government feeling threatened by private citizens becoming potentially more influential than they are. This is about power and control and the communist party reasserting its dominance over society. The Communist party isn’t going to have society dictated by celebrities.
