The Hollywood martial-arts superstar Jackie Chan has expressed his desire to become a card-carrying member of the Chinese Communist Party.
Chan was speaking at a Beijing symposium for Chinese film last week and was asked about his views on Chinese President Xi Jinping’s speech at the Communist Party’s centenary.
“When I’m abroad I often say I’m proud to be Chinese, but I’m envious of those who are Chinese Communist Party members – I want to be a party member, too,” Chan said in a video seen by Insider. . .
Chan’s patriotism, however, was snubbed by some commenters on Weibo, the Chinese version of Twitter. The Weibo users questioned Chan’s “moral character,” citing incidences of his infidelity and his son Jaycee’s drug offenses, saying it would disqualify him from becoming a party member.
“He might love the country and be hardworking, but he has character problems,” one user with the ID Zhuozhuo Drolma said. “It’s better if he doesn’t join the party.” (Read more from “Jackie Chan Experiences Chinese Backlash After Saying He Wants To Become a Communist Party Member” HERE)
