“In case no one got the memo, I’m gay,” she wrote, adding #lgbtqai, #lgbt, #lesbian and #androgynous in the caption.
In a new YouTube video, the 18-year-old and her Canadian girlfriend, Andi Autumn, 30, claimed that authorities are making their problems worse.
“We’ve been homeless for a month, due to homophobic parents,” Ng said. “We’ve pretty much slept under a bridge and other things, you know?
“I don’t even understand what is going on because we’ve gone to the police, we’ve gone to the hospital, the food banks, LGBTQ community shelters, and all of them just don’t give a s**t. So that’s why we’re making this video, because we don’t know what to do at this point.”
“I love you,” she said facing Andi.
In response, Elaine Ng said that the video was “wrong” and that they should find work.
“I feel that if they have no money, they should go find work.
“They shouldn’t film a clip telling others they are broke and who Etta’s father is. People all over the world work hard and don’t rely on someone else’s fame to get money.”
When asked if she had been communicating with her daughter, the former beauty queen replied, “I don’t want to talk about it.”
Netizens had various reactions on the couple’s plea for help.
Chan did not have much involvement in Etta’s life, according to reports. When asked about her coming-out, the martial arts star kept it short, saying, “If she likes it, that’s fine.”
