Jackie Chan: “Tsunami & Quakes Good in a Certain Country”


Jackie Chan’s recent remarks that it was “good” for tsunami and earthquakes to devastate “a certain country” have sparked plenty of criticism.

According to the Hong Kong press, Chan’s recent trip to California to promote the US release of his “CZ12” movie saw him make more of his legendarily ill-judged remarks to media in local interviews.

Just which country he was referring to is not clear, but the context certainly seems to exclude quake-prone California and China:

“Americans and Chinese shouldn’t just join hands – the whole world should join hands.”

He clarified that this did not include a certain unidentified country:

“Even saying this, I think it is best natural disasters befall a certain country. Like giant earthquakes and tsunami.”

“In times like this the world will join together to aid them, which is great. Without earthquakes and tsunami nobody will do anything. Without them people just engage in conflicts under political pretexts.”

Chan is of course no stranger to making nakedly political remarks in support of China.

The “tasteless and insensitive” comments do not seem to have been well received in Hong Kong, but this pales to the response from Japanese:

“Everyone knows exactly what he is trying to say here.”

“Obviously he means Japan. He’s gone down in my estimation.”

“Please just keep him out of Japan.”

“Not this clown again!”

“He reminds me of Agnes.”

“Amazing he would say these things considering the situation in places like Sichuan.”

“This filthy Chinese dog’s vicious remarks are obviously directed against Japan.”

“Is he alright?”

“I want to believe he is being made to say these things.”

“He could be well meaning, if he is really that stupid.”

“He’s just inarticulate, really.”

“He means something like it would be good for aliens to invade because it would unite the planet.”

“This old fool still hasn’t learned to keep his mouth shut I see.”

“The CCP’s dog here is still barking I see.”

“I wouldn’t call this remark ‘accidental’ – it is pretty obvious where he is coming from and what he means.”

“He’s just an old fool now. Even the Chinese are criticising him.”

“He’s an idiot. It’s a shame he’s like this considering the positive impression his movies leave you with.”

    Wait, Sankaku is shocked that someone saying something nasty about some country or race of people? I guess they have never seen the comment section before.

    Jackie Chan is not blindly pro-Chinese considering in the past, he make many statement that almost get himself sacked from the honorable title he got in China.

    -considering the vast wealth and fame he's accumulated are about 99% due to WESTERNERS including Japan- remember he became famous in HONG KONG, NOT *CHINA* you'd think he might be a bit more circumspect in his public statements.

    But no.

    I almost seems like this comment is not truly wishing bad befalls Japan, but rather is was a good thing as people rushed to aid them and put aside political battles ("Without them people just engage in conflicts under political pretexts")

    Though even still there was condescension when saying that they "needed" aid.

    This is exactly what i took from what he said. Without disasters that make large parts of the world band together and aid the victims, people will stop giving a flying fuck and start wars that probably will end up killing more people than the disasters will.

    Even though he could have formulated himself better, people are too quick to jump to conclusions. "He says earthquakes are good, so he must hate japan."
    I simply hate people who just read/listen to parts that allow them to whip up a convenient shitstorm.

    As for why he said 'a certain country', that could just be a bad formulation on his part. You can't expect everyone who was born outside an english speaking country to be able to perfectly formulate themselves all the time. Hell, you can't even expect it from most people who were born in an english speaking country and have lived there most of their lives.

    He did learn English by watching the television, so can't expect him to sound appropriate.

    What's so shocking about it tho, I think it's way better for a country to get hit by natural disasters and get outside help, open up because it HAS to, etc. than to exist in a current state. Look at best korea, they don't live, they exist. Hungry, poor, isolated, natural disaster would be a blessing for the north korean people, casualities would be a lot lower than straight forward conflict and people would actually go there to help and won't get hunted down as 'oppressors', unlike for example Iraq now.

    But Sancom passing around stories with links is nothing compared to what this guy is spewing.

    Jackie Chan has high social status and is part of an entertainment industry that has a global audience.

    What he did there is bad for business and confirms just how much of a communist cunt he is.

    You think the world will stand alongside his country if conflict ensues. He's dead wrong.

    Sancom weaboo wannabes are sensitive like that.

    Also, Jackie Chan left out nuclear fallout, which they share with rest of the world via its ocean water.

    Guess the China fanboy forgot about all the

    set off over the years to poison the earth
    and the atmosphere.

    Weeaboos and japanophiles are a bane on the internets/world as much as any Nationalists out there. Just because one blindly bums the Japanese even though one is a foreigner can still make one a nationalist. Adopted nationalism is equally bad as nationalism.

    There's hoping one day they'll send a few over to weabooland, finish the job we started 70 years ago.

    But then again, japs might do it themselves via self inflicted nuke before that happens.

    I'm not American and never have been there but the impression I have is that they hate north Korea gov, not the people. I don't like China's gov either but the Chineses I have meet were nice people (even if they get irrational when talking about Senkaku just like Argentineans talking about Falklands)

    There's an inherent issue with that kind of sentiment, which largely goes along the lines of "I don't trust your government" --> "I don't trust your people's ability to govern themselves." There are plenty of countries in the world that have a bone to pick with that American idea, but most ignore it because people by and large want a peaceful world.

    In America, by and large the American people think of North Koreans as poor, brainwashed souls in need of saving. There's basically no confidence in their ability to self-direct their own future.

    Nope, its on the internet, so its 100% true, that's how it works.

    Also you have to get angry and complain all over the internet on how its wrong but don't get off your ass to do anything about it.

    That's how the Internet's work.
