Tony Leung, Andy Lau Comment on Occupy Central
More Hong Kong celebrities have come forth to criticize the Hong Kong government for using aggressive methods to disperse the demonstrators of pro-democracy movement, Occupy Central, which is still ongoing after one week of protests.
Andy Lau (劉德華) and Chow Yun Fat (周潤發) gave their support to the protesters and expressed their wishes for the Hong Kong police not to use tear gas or any other form of aggression on the demonstrators. Chow Yun Fat also urged the Hong Kong government to not avoid the matter and face the situation boldly. Andy expressed through his official website that he wishes for Hong Kong to find peace again.
Tony Leung Chiu Wai (梁朝偉) released a statement to the press through his Facebook, lending his support to the movement. “I support all the Hong Kong people who are expressing their demands through peaceful means. I am against the government for using aggressive methods on the peaceful demonstrators, and I hope the government will show their sincerity and talk with the people!”
Chapman To (杜汶澤) shared Tony’s Facebook post and added, “When Chapman To, the one who offends everyone, speaks up, [it can be] a small thing. But now, Chow Yun Fat, the one whom everyone wants to take a picture with, says you are doing something. Even Tony Leung, the one who doesn’t speak a lot, has spoken. You are in big trouble.”
Miriam Yeung (楊千嬅) wrote on her Facebook, “I feel sad. I love Hong Kong! The road continues to go on. I hope the government will resolve this soon. Listen respectfully. Don’t resort to violence! Peace to all kids and everyone.” Miriam’s husband, Real Ting (丁子高), uploaded a picture of a yellow ribbon against a black background on his Instagram, and wrote, “Not only was the problem not solved, the contradictions deepened! Speechless.”
Lynn Hung (熊黛林), on the other hand, left a message that seemed to criticize the Hong Kong demonstrators on her Weibo. She wrote, “Sacrificing others’ interests and affecting others’ lives to reach your goals are despicable. It doesn’t matter how pompous your excuse may be.”
