Jinny Ng Criticized for Embarrassing Hong Kong People
TVB travel show Tokyo Shopping Guide <東京血拼攻略> made its premiere on Sunday. It is hosted by Jinny Ng (吳若希), Bella Lam (林穎彤), and Taiwanese stars Rachel Shen (韋汝) and 牟韻潔. The women take the audience around Japan to show them the latest in fashion stores, outlets and restaurants. Japan has always been the ultimate travel destination for Hong Kong so even though this type of travel show has been done time and time again, it still is well received. However, the first episode left the audience disappointed in Jinny’s lack of manners.
The women went into a consignment shop for luxury goods in search of good deals. There were two big signs in English stating, “Please Don’t Touch!” It was unclear whether Jinny did not see or whether her level of English comprehension was low as she immediately grabbed a Louis Vuitton suitcase that was valued at around 15 million yen exclaiming, “I don’t have money to buy you, but I must touch you before I leave!”
Many viewers were disappointed in Jinny’s behavior, criticizing that she was an embarrassment to Hong Kong people. Many left very harsh comments including, “Brainless”, “Can you please improve your English?”, “Illiterate”, and “I’ve already lost hope in this type of Hong Kong girl.”
This is not the first time Jinny has been under fire for her behavior. Most recently Jinny was also criticized for her exaggerated “happiness” towards Hana Kuk (菊梓喬) winning the Most Popular Singer award at the Jade Solid Gold awards ceremony.
