Quality of Beijing Marathon – 北京マラソンの品性

According to the news reported domestically, Beijing International Marathon barred Japanese by intentionally eliminating Japan from the nationality list in their registration site. Mean or vulgar is the exact adjective for the quality of character like this, and I wonder if such a word exists in Chinese dictionaries?
As of yesterday, they quietly added Japan name to the list and appear trying to avoid the issue to be further heated, the news followed up. The current site lists Japan on the top of several popular country names, interestingly, and everybody can register by choosing “others” and write down the exact nationality. The officials commented they never excluded any nations. On the other hand, their guide states that Committee shall have the right to decide whether an entry is accepted or not according to the registration situation and registration fees are non-refundable.
