International action star Jackie Chan’s separated daughter, Etta Ng, has come out as a lesbian on social media.
In her Instagram post a few days ago, Ng shared a photo of her with a rainbow in the background with the caption: “In case no one got the memo, I’m gay.”
On the other hand, she deleted the caption later and replaced it with the hashtags #lgbt #lesbian #androgynous.
Ng’s social media followers welcomed her disclosure and expressed their support for Jackie Chan’s 18-year-old daughter.
“Good for you Miss Ng. The LGBT world, and LGBT supporters like me welcome you warmly,” wrote one commenter.
“The best thing in the world is to BE yourself. We’re PROUD of you,” said another.
“It is really courageous of you two to come out. The way the Chinese and HongKong media treat you two are so wrong, they are too idiotic to see how big the world really is, and too bigot to be respectful to others. I hope the best for you two, and love wins,” one also wrote, referring also to Ng’s partner, Andi Autumn.
Ng is said to be living in Hong Kong with Autumn, a social media influencer. Autumn herself confirmed they were a couple in a separate Instagram post.
“I’ve never met anyone like (Etta). She has given me a chance to fully express the running thoughts in my head. No judgments, just understanding,” Autumn said.
I am in awe at the amount of support and love poured my way. I am speechless at how followers went to my Girlfriend @andiautumn and my account to show us both so much positivity. People all over the world have been rooting us on as Hong Kong media continues to mock. I’ve grown up in a world of negativity and close mindedness but I am at that point where I realise that I can use my experience to tell my truths and help others just like me. Thankfully I’ve grown since the days I was powerless and uncertain what the world has for me. Thank you for the enormous outpour of love and acceptance. 🌈❤️🙌🏻💪🏻 我對於大家的支持和愛感到十分驚喜與感激。你們在我和我女朋友 @andiautumn 的instagram户口留下的正能量實在令我感恩。多謝來自世界各地的你們給我的祝福，令我感到恩惠，當香港傳媒不斷去評論我的生活時，令我感受到無比的壓力。我從小在一個佈滿負面和封閉的環境下長大，但是隨著社會進步，我希望能夠利用我的故事來説出真相從而幫助其他和我處境一樣的人。我曾經對於世界和未來感到非常無助和迷惘，但慶幸身邊一直有不同的人去支持和鼓勵我，令我想通了，成長了。最後我想再次多謝大家的關懷和接受。🌈❤️🙌🏻🦄 #lgbt #androgynous #lgbtqai #loveislove #lovewins #lovealwayswins #lesbian #love #support #🌈 #androgynous #queer #gay #gaygram #loveyourself #advocacy
“We’ve encountered a lot of discrimination from family, friends and the Hong Kong society. But none of it matters when I know every morning [you’re] going to be next to me,” she added.
Ng is Chan’s daughter with former beauty queen Elaine Ng. She once confessed she has never been in contact with her superstar father whom she said “has never been in her life”.
