Jackie Chan Joins Protest Against Paparazzi

Posted on August 31, 2006 by

Actor Jackie Chan attended a televised protest in Hong Kong to condemn invasion of privacy by local media, reports the BBC.

The event came about after an incident involving pop singer Gillian Chung, one half of the group Twins. Last week, Hong Kong magazine Easy Finder published photographs of Chung backstage after a concert. They were taken secretly, and show Chung adjusting her bra.

The magazine is known for making use of hidden cameras and paparazzi photographers.

Chan told reporters that the publication of the photographs is a harmful message to be sending to children.

“They will go back to school and take pictures of girls’ underwear,” he said.

Chung’s bandmate, Charlene Choi, also attended the protest rally, along with actors Andy Lau and Rosamund Kwan.

More than 1700 official complaints over the photographs have been filed with local media regulators.
