Needless to say, Hong Kong has had a lot of shit to deal with lately. Protesting for free elections while under Chinese rule isn’t a walk in the park. The last time that happened in a big way (in mainland China), hundreds of civilians were mowed down by tanks and assault rifles in Tiananmen Square. So really, something Hong Kong doesn’t need right now is for their chief executive’s daughter to be a total fucking asshole … which, unfortunately, she totally is.
According to Coconuts Hong Kong
, Chai Yan Leung, the daughter of embattled Hong Kong leader CY Leung, attacked commenters who criticized a picture of a necklace she had posted on her Facebook page. Leung is known for flaunting expensive designer accessories and shoes on her social media accounts.
In Leung’s response to her detractors on Facebook, which has since been taken down, she writes: “This is actually a beautiful necklace bought at Lane Crawford (yes- funded by all you HK taxpayers!! So are all my beautiful shoes and dresses and clutches!! Thank you so much!!!!) Actually maybe I shouldn’t say ‘all you’- since most of you here are probably unemployed hence have all this time obsessed with bombarding me with messages.”
The 22-year-old Leung also went on to insult her fellow Hong Kongers’ English-speaking abilities: “Actually considering the standard of English I’ve skimmed through at times I doubt you’d even understand what the term ‘social media platform’ means; or in fact, any of the above. But anyway, enjoy copying and pasting all of this onto Google translation and still not getting it. It’s okay- your mother still loves you.”
Here’s her screed in full:
points out that Leung’s Instagram account is still active and that her posts there indicate that she’s a fan of the Hilton sisters — pick your jaw up off the floor — and that she places designer shoes around her room as decor, rather than wearing them out.
Earlier this year, the South China Morning Post
broke the story that Leung had posted a 3 a.m. photo of her slashed wrist to her Facebook page next to the caption “Will I bleed to death?”
Forget ousting her father in the name of democracy even — can Hong Kong at least get a leader who knows when its time to take away his daughter’s goddamn Facebook privileges?
