I read a news brief that will surely uplift the spirit of our countrymen working in Hong Kong. International actor Jackie Chan has send out the following tweets assuaging the fear of many Filipinos that Hong Kong would retaliate after the bus siege Monday. The hostage crisis left eight Hong Kong residents killed and seven others badly wounded.
“HK is a nation built by a lot of different people…don’t worry! We do not hate!”
“This kind of things always happens around the world. It happens to HK’s people. The whole HK is talking about it. It’s really sad.”
“If they killed the guy sooner, they will say why not negotiate first? If they negotiate first, they ask why not kill the guy sooner? So sad.”
The messages reportedly came from a verified account. I’m following Jackie Chan now.
