The Action Adventure Funny Man Sticks That Killer Foot ... Right in his Own Mouth!
Trending on Yahoo! at this very moment, ladies and gentlemen, is Jackie Chan.
What? Why would the happy-go-lucky Hong Kong naitve, star of “Rumble in the Bronx” and “Rush Hour,” be trending in 2013? Because Jackie Chan is in the middle of an Anti-American controversy.
Not PSY ("GANGNAM STYLE"), who also had his moment in the bad spotlight with some Anti-American comments that came to light. Just "sigh," like "oh, not another dope."
According to close friends of THE HEYMAN HUSTLE who have worked with Jackie Chan, he is quite passionate about politics, a surprisingly staunch defender of the Chinese Communist Party and harsh critic of anyone he sees as opposing Beijing. Today, that includes the United States.
In a Chinese TV interview, Chan asserted that the United States is “the most corrupt country in the world.” He scolded Chinese who criticize their country in a way that foreigners can hear or see, adding that he’s careful to only praise China when giving interviews in the U.S.
The Washington Post, utilizing the Ministry of Tofu to translate Chan's comments, reports Chan stated about The New China, "The real success has been made in the past dozen of years. Our country’s president also admits they have the corruption problem, and some other stuff, but we are making progress. What I can see is our country is continuously making progress and learning. If you talk about corruption, the entire world, the United States, has no corruption?"
The host then asks, as if to clarify, "America?"
Chan responds, "The most corrupt (country) in the world!"
Chan continued, "Where does this Great Breakdown [financial crisis] come from? It started exactly from the world, the United States. When I was interviewed in the U.S., people asked me, I said the same thing. I said now that China has become strong, everyone is making an issue of China. If our own countrymen don’t support our country, who will support our country? We know our country has many problems. We [can] talk about it when the door is closed. To outsiders, (we should say) “our country is the best.”
This interview is probably not so surprising to Chinese viewers. Chan has been stirring controversy for a few years now for criticizing Taiwan and Hong Kong as models of what can go wrong when you have “too much freedom.” He once said, in defending China’s censorship of his films, “Chinese people need to be controlled, otherwise they will do whatever they want.”
