Eric Tsang (曾志偉) gathered his family and 300 of his good friends at Disneyland for a private birthday bash on April 14. Media who crashed the party revealed the artists spoiled the image of Disneyland by using expletive language in their songs. The artists also broke Disneyland’s regulations by smoking in the compound of the children-friendly amusement park.

To celebrate his 60th birthday, Eric made a two-day reservation at the Toy Story Playland, Grizzly Gulch: A Runaway Adventure and the soon-to-open Mystic Point. At 4 PM, the park was closed to the public, thus angering some tourists. The artists that attended Eric’s birthday party included Kenny Chung (鍾鎮濤), Jacky Cheung (張學友), Tony Leung Ka Fei (梁家輝), Chingmy Yau (邱淑貞), Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼), Louis Yuen (阮兆祥), and Sherming Yiu (姚樂怡).

When asked why he had chosen Disneyland as his birthday venue, Eric said, “I reserved the park because many artists don’t have the opportunity to go out and play at theme parks. I just want my friends to enjoy themselves with their families.” The party was so wild that the usually composed Tony also drank up a storm and at one point, embarrassed himself when he threw up heavily and had to lean on others to walk.

Eric Expresses Himself Through Profanity

Coincidentally, Eric attended a Caring for Children Foundation’s Sesame Street musical publicity event yesterday and was asked by reporters if he thought his actions at his birthday party were a bad influence to the children. Eric clarified that the party only started after 10 PM when all children were sent off the Disneyland grounds.

“I thought it was a private party. We only partied so wildly after we closed the doors to the public. This is my way of expression. I am a big kid and I love to party hard; Anita Mui (梅艷芳) used to scold me too. I often ask people not to send me to the stage because I always sing songs with lots of expletives.” Eric emphasized once again that he had arranged for different celebrations to set aside private time in order to celebrate with his own friends. He had not expected outsiders to crash his party.

Nevertheless, Eric apologized and denied that he has made insinuations in his party that Charmaine Sheh loves to use foul language in her speeches. He further added that he was only rapping meaninglessly. Stressing that he just loves to live in the moment, he claimed to forget everything that has been done at the party once it ended.

Regarding the smoking incident, Eric admitted that he was the one who broke the rule by asking everyone not to smoke outside the banquet ballroom as reporters might take photographs and spoil the image of Disneyland.

Charmaine Sheh Responds

Responding to Eric’s profanity-ridden singing, in which he invited her to share the stage together, Charmaine laughed, “We were too happy and noisy that night. I didn’t hear what was sung or said.” Did that mean that Charmaine frequently used profanity? “Just kidding! That night, we were all close friends. As a family having a [private party], we could joke about anything. There’s no need to be upset!” Asked if she used profanity, Charmaine said, “I don’t believe that there is anyone who doesn’t curse. But it depends on the occasion and what’s happening.”

Kenny Chung left a message on his Weibo yesterday, “It was with good intentions that we held a private party. Since we are all adults, we were merely having fun while bringing others joy too. We never harmed anyone so what’s wrong with us breaking out in songs with expletives?”

      Management started getting the crowd out by 4pm. I think there’s a private party in Disneyland but after 10pm, only adults program.

        Hey man, seen the smog lately in HK? Disneyland not doing their nightly fireworks display for one night is a bonus.

    They are human, humping cardboard Eric Tsang photoshopped figure is normal.

    On smoking… well that park is full of Mainland smokers, smoke to death with a bunch cigarette butts & polluted the air, kinda expected that in the party. Good for the environment.

    Thanks to the tattle tail news reports for making the news so private party exposed.

      They didn’t smoke in the park. They smoked during the evening dinner, inside a closed hall reserved for this private bash. Disneyland gave Eric a go ahead.

        Eric said he asked them not to smoke outside because there are paps outside. It’s not good for Disneyland image. He ask them not to smoke inside the ballroom if they can’t, but in the end some guests still smokes. None of the articles indicate they smoked outside.

    Eric has the right to celebrate his 60th birthday party whichever way he wish. It was thoughtful of him to think of Disneyland because many of his friends have children and they can come for a couple of hours of fun. The adults’ party (I would presume not running short of party games like Super Trio shows) started after 10pm when children have been sent home…..again thoughtful and sensible. So why are these paparazzi getting fluffed about and needed to invent stories ?…..so typical, so disgusting. Leave that man alone.

        I can understand it’s his private party. If I am one of those crowd who bought ticket for whole day and got shoo out at 4 , i am going to be pissed!. Ticket to disneyland is not cheap. As I remember normally you can stay until 12 am morning.

      It is his party. TVB did not spend another $3 million budget to do it all over again.

    Typical of a Celebrity. When they break the law they apologize profusely. Sometimes they even break into crocodile tears.

    If a member of the general public they will charge in court.

    Hong Kong has lost its charms and is run by these celebrities who demand special rights.

    The reporters really had to search far and wide to find out that only profanity and smoking was exhibited at this private birthday party. They did not report on any violent or sexual misbehavior/conduct or any wardrobe malfunctions by any celebrity(s)which has been bigger news as in the past. This party is tame so the reporters had to report on something to justify their pay and existence on the tabloids payroll.

    HK Disney must really need the money because I can’t imagine any of the other parks closing for this type of private event. Disney Corporate should be notified.

    While I despise the little dwarf and anything he is connected to, it was a private party and it should have been expected that he would act like a massive jerk. – Why is this news?
    Aside from the selfish closing of part of the park that people had paid to play in, I don’t see the problem.
    The only happy ending would have been if he drove home alone and met misfortune with a lightpole. I guess Disneyland isn’t all happy endings.
