Jackie Chan is taking his son’s drug bust pretty hard and has been going off about being dishonored and all the other things Chinese fathers say before their sons jump off a bridge. Chan posted a message on his website that fails to address the fact that China can legally execute you for being into pot:
“The recent news about my son, Jaycee, is very shocking and the impact it has caused on society is heartbreaking. When I first heard the news, I was absolutely enraged. As a public figure, I feel very ashamed; as his dad, I’m very sad and disappointed. But the person who feels heartbroken the most is his mom. I hope our younger generation will learn from Jaycee’s mistake and stay far away from drug abuse. I would like to take this opportunity and say to Jaycee: you’ve done something wrong and you have to be responsible for the consequences.”
Jackie goes so far as to blame Jaycee for society’s ills, which is fair because junior probably had something to do with Tiananmen Square. This kid is a moron for smoking pot under such Draconian conditions. If he was that into weed he should have fled China for a land where you get to complain about minor shit and can land movie roles based on your last name. Jackie does a fine job of illustrating how China continues to be fucked up, blaming the victim of their insane police state. He’s currently busy fire walling websites with Western ideas, pleading for sanity, and trying to block import of Pink Floyd’s debut album. If China wasn’t paying for all of our food stamps, we could really mock them properly.
