Jackie Chan

As many people in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Mainland China know, Jackie Chan recently said "I'm not sure if it's good to have freedom or not. If you're too free, you're like the way Hong Kong is now. It's very chaotic. Taiwan is also chaotic. I'm gradually beginning to feel that we Chinese need to be controlled. If we're not being controlled, we'll just do what we want."

Whether he said this to please communist authorities in China or not, this comment was not only insulting as he described Taiwan and Hong Kong as "chaotic," but also because he described us Taiwanese, Cantonese, and Chinese as "Need(ing) to be controlled."

We are not animals, we are people with rights to democracy and freedom. Therefore, we ask Jackie Chan to make a simple apology and perhaps show some more respect to Taiwan and China

We the people demand an apology from Jackie Chan, the famous kung-fu actor, for his comments stating that Taiwanese, Cantonese, and Chinese needed to be "controlled" and that freedom was not good.

Jackie Chan has not only showed his foolhardiness, but also his toady to the Communist authorities in China. This comment not only insults us by naming us uncivilized animals but also insults our freedom and democracy.

This had led to the planned boycotting of his May 1st concert as well as his new movie, “Shinjuku Incident." If Chan wants to side with the Communists instead of his fans, then let him do so at the risk of his own failure.
