Chapman To Rebuts Wong Jing with 1000 Word Essay

Hong Kong’s pro-democracy protest, Occupy Central, has largely received support from local artistes. However, director Wong Jing (王晶) openly declared his support for the Hong Kong police to use force to subdue the protesters, and decided to unfriend Anthony Wong (黃秋生), Chapman To (杜汶澤), and Denise Ho (何韻詩) because of their political stance. In a 1000-word Facebook post, Chapman said that Wong Jing’s statement was driven by monetary reasons and nothing more than a publicity stunt.

On the surface, Chapman’s Facebook post may seem neutral, but it contains jabs towards Wong Jing. Chapman implied that Wong Jing’s statements over Occupy Central were motivated by profits in the Mainland Chinese box office. Chapman wrote, “Not everyone is like myself, choosing to focus on Hong Kong as the primary market. Since the market has changed, many people have headed to [Mainland China].”

Chapman said he was dropped from the cast of Wong Jing’s upcoming film, From Vegas To Macau 2 <賭城風雲 2 > after he was boycotted by Mainland viewers due to his arrogance and political views. Chapman believed that Wong Jing’s primary motivation for his Occupy Central stance was driven by bottom-line profits for From Vegas To Macau 2. Chapman wrote, “From Vegas To Macau 2 will premiere in celebration of the next Lunar New Year. This battle can only be successful and there can’t be any failures. The senior might retire soon and probably won’t have many years of filming left. You guys can understand, right?”

Chapman closed his post with, “Finally, I want to tell Wong Jing, that I often say to others that Wong Jing helped me earn [the money to pay for] half of my house. This is the truth! Thank you! I wish you health and great box office success for your new movie!”

Wong Jing Fires Back

As expected, upon reading Chapman’s message, Wong Jing immediately fired back. “My blog post yesterday was to express my personal feelings. Regarding the angry messages from those three [Anthony, Chapman, and Denise], I already figured that it would happen. If you act ethical, do I have to cry and say I’m sorry? Someone said I’ve only spoken because I wanted to earn more money. I’m very offended – I’ve worked very hard in the last couple of years and I’m very confident that I can live the rest of my life with just the bare minimum. I’ll continue to fight for what I feel is just – Hong Kong should not tolerate these destructive clowns! I support the enforcement of police!”

      Unfriending someone just because of their opposing political views sound so childish. Everyone is subjected to their own POV.

      Totally support the police to use necessary forces as protesters are acting crazy, violently and causing chaos to citizens & society. Those behavior is outrageous

      • Clementine replied:

        Yes, necessary force may be reasonable when people’s behaviours turn violent and get out of hand, but have you seen what the police have done to protestors whose behaviours are FAR from violent, those who dont have any weapons, dont fight back, just peacefully standing to protest?

        Yes, the protestors are causing chaos to the city in terms of interrupting citzens daily lives and companies financial losses, but how does that justify the violent attacks and arrests that the HK police has done to peaceful protestors??

        I personally think it’s the government’s fault for not handling the situation well enough in the first place. Violence will only anger and cause more trouble..

        And as for Wong Jing’s unfriending thing, what a childish thing to do. It’s fine if he doesnt want to be friends with them anymore cos that’s his problem, but seriously, to not be friend’s with someone who has a different political view to you, i.e. just different opinions?? Not worth being his friend in the first place I say. WOn’t be anyones loss.

          Dont judge people , each person have a different perspective into their idea of friend.
          for example will you be a friend to the person who killed your father or family/?
          Basically it the same concept as people hate being friend or not with stephen chow …

          If you are refuse to see the escalating terror of the student’s behaviour that’s your call. Reality is reality. Some just refuse to face fact. I’ve been to those sites the students do put their hands up but their legs are kicking and stomping. When the cameras are out of sight they turn into hulk and when the cameras are in their direction they turn into ‘Bruce Banner’ (opposite of hulk). What are police are doing are keeping peace and order which is their job!

          Unfriending is childish, yes, but when you have strong political views, it does affect friendships, whether you unfriend them or not. Remaining them as friends while not really friends is hypocrisy.

          And the other 2 are equally childish to rebut Wong Jing in language and content of his manner.

          Would you prefer to just let the students occupy hk and have the rest of hk citizen life be disrupted. For you information, pointing an umbrella directly into a policeman face is very dangerous. Further, now the police cant see waht the person is hiding and holding behind the umbrella. It is a dangerous situation for the police to in. This occupy hk has divided a great hk and in the end, nothing really has changed.

        The ‘terror’ of what these students are doing is nothing compared to the ‘terror’ of what China is doing. Would you prefer a Hong Kong where people can freely and openly speak out against, protest against, and disagree with the government, or one where people are afraid to speak due to China’s heavy censorship? I’d take these students and their so-called terror over China any day.

          but they HAVE been able to speak out freely and protest in HK. They wouldn’t still be out in the streets for weeks if there were heavy censorship in HK. In historical context, protesting was prohibited during British rule under sedition laws.

          Furthermore, many protestors from the “HK Riot of the Mid 60s” were arrested (by British Troops) and “deported without due process” back to the Mainland, a frightening act of McCarthyism in real life.

      You guys and girls think u friending someone is very childish. You really don’t understand how much differing views and politics can cause a rift between people. In UK, the Scottish Referendum for Independence have seen the NO and YES supporters clash on streets. In HK, yellow and blue ribbons supporters are against each other. Wong Jing isn’t the only one unfriending people, both sides in HK are doing the same. All you need to do is ask around.

      To those people who against the students in the Hong Kong protest, just ask yourself what will happen to Hong Kong if China really take over the control and shut every students up, do you think you can still voice your opinion just simple opinion like on this site (jaynestars.com). Believe me your opinion will be deleted in a second saying any thing against China okay. Remember “one country, 2 systems” is it happening> I guess not.

        im not against the protest but the price they have to pay for freedom may be too big and the chance they will succeed is like finding a lake in the desert. who dont want to live in freedom of speech and justice but reality is reality,unless whole china will start a revolution otherwise there is no any chance this will come to a good end. soon or later the police will charge with brute force if the protestors insist their demand.

      I truly hope the police give up and don’t even bother with their job. Basically there is no law in Hong kong why bother …. The protest is no different from the triad or being a terrorist it self holding million of jobs to be cut and families got no income .
      IF you student think this is revolution or fight for your freedom is correct then you should not complain about the police during there job. Hong kong Police is already nice compared to other countries cough cough america and china ( you will see more blood and death ).

    20. Funn Lim says:

      The public is frustrated with the constant meddling from China and they’re now brave enough to express that. In the past I always thought HK people as either docile or timid or simply didn’t care. They’re more aware of their rights as people and as a nation. Whilst I abhor violence, I do not think the police were blameless. There were suspiscious parties involved stirring things and these could be like Line Walker, planted moles from either party trying to discredit the peaceful assembly. There were police brutality as much as angry mobs. But at the end of the day the police in doing their job must not allow the violence to escalate. In fact no assembly is ever violent if parties do not overstep the lines and someone did in here. Even celebrities are citizens and human beings and so each have rights to hold their own political beliefs as long as it is not of the genocide kind. On TV I saw TVB shows about police brutality, HK-ers talking about their civil rights, etc.; These are exciting times for HK who is becoming more proactive in their own governance and life. This is a good sign of awareness. China will never let HK go, if they do Tibet and the rest will wanna go, and Taiwan will lay claim to independent autonomy which they are of course but right now China is treating Taiwan like “It’s mine but they’re independent” which is BS. HK is simply crying out their frustration and anger. The best China can do is to live up to their promise of 50 years unchanged and no meddling into their state of affairs and let HK be independent in spirit if they can’t be in name.

      The protest is not that bad. Seoul was worse, Chinese protests were worse. But to say the students or individuals should not exercise their rights to protest legitimate causes is erronous and is the sort of thinking China and the rest of those controlling nations (malaysia included) wants. People do not protest for the sake of protest. For a place like HK to have such a long overdrawn massive protest, something must be wrong and it is a cry for help. If such cry for help is not addressed, no one will be satisfied or safe and China is in a danger of losing their own golden goose that lays golden eggs. Yes the shops are inconvenienced, the tourists are inconvenienced, ordinary people who doesn’t care for politics and are working hard to earn a living doesn’t care, and it is fine. I understand their stand. But there are those who does these things to change the bad apples and these will benefit everyone in the long run if it is a legitimate cause. I think they have a legitimate cause. Throw the ball back to China and the powers that be; leave HK alone. At least HK-ers have the balls to tell China and the rest of the world that.

      As for someone who thinks police “doing their job” also means violent reaction, that is absolutely wrong. If the police resort to brutality, that’s what escalates the whole situation. This is why the police have equipments, dressed in padded clothings with helmets, they’re there to observe, and maintain order. Not escalate things. Of course the HK-ers should not react violently as well but ever thought maybe the trouble makers have their own hidden agendas and does not have HK’s best interest in their minds?

        you have to understand the fear of china’s communistic leaders. what they concern about is how to keep a great empire of 1.3 billion ppl under their control,giving in the demands of the students means losing control of their power over hk and therfor their greatest nightmare will come true that other part of china will also do the same thing.to prevent that china isnt afraid to sacrifies when needed unwilling ppl’s lives who dare to challenge their authority.it happened in tian-men square 25 years ago and recently in xinjiang and tibet. this could also happen in hk if the students stay strong.and china is so powerful in military as well as economically that they are not even bothered to sacrifies hk and push hk to hell,for the sake to keep the country united in their mind.
