Jackie Chan blasted for hypocrisy



Jackie Chan has never been one to be free from controversy, as the martial arts superstar was recently called a hypocrite for filming a PSA campaign for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

According to The Blaze website, in the "Calling Out for Equality" ad campaign, that was made for GLAAD - the leading lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender international community, Jackie Chan literally came out of a closet after stating, "It's not enough to talk about those fighting for freedom, for equality, until you are one of those fighting."

While the ad was well-received with the foreign media, the Hong Kong community instead slammed the actor's advocacy for the LGBT equality in the campaign to be "utterly disturbing" as Jackie had once spoke against democracy and human rights in Hong Kong and China.

Earlier, Jackie sparked bad publicity when he openly declared the United States to be the "most corrupt [country] in the world" during a television interview, while at the same time, enraged many Hong Kong residents when he reportedly went on to say that Chinese people [needed] to be controlled.

Meanwhile, openly gay Hong Kong singer, Anthony Wong shared the ad on his Facebook account, and wrote, "Will Jackie do the same thing for us in Hong Kong and mainland China?"
