Jackie Chan’s teenage daughter comes out as gay
The daughter of martial artist and actor Jackie Chan has come out as a lesbian.
Etta Ng took to Instagram to tell the world that she is a gay, posing in front of a rainbow coloured background.
Etta is the daughter of Chan and former Hong Kong beauty queen Elaine Ng.
The 17-year-old wrote: “In case no one got the memo, I’m gay.”
The revelation was followed by the hashtags “#lgbtqai, #lgbt, #lesbian, and #androgynous”.
Etta was born following an extra-marital affair, and it is not not known how he has reacted to her coming out.
Chan, who has appeared in more than 150 films, also has a son, actor Jaycee, with his wife and former actress Lin Feng-jiao.
The news has been welcomed in China, with online commentators writing, “Happiness is all that matters!” and “Support the ability and freedom to love.”
China’s communist government has worked to ban LGBTQ themes in film and broadcast media, but the country’s growing number of vocal millennials are more supportive towards LGBT rights.
