Jackie Chan's homeless daughter calls for help on YouTube


Hong Kong superstar Datuk Jackie Chan’s estranged daughter Etta Ng and her female friend are homeless, and have made a call for help.
Hong Kong entertainment website Coconuts recently reported that Ng, 18, and Andi Autumn, 30, revealed in a short video posted last Tuesday that they had been homeless for a month due to “homophobic parents”.
Their plea came shortly after the appearance of CCTV footage showing them in a convenience store, where Ng told the cashier “I want to find my father”.
The local media reported that Ng and Autumn had been spotted in Canada, that Ng had quit her job, had not been heard from or seen for months, and that her mother had filed a missing person report in February.
In the video caption, Ng explained that Autumn’s friend was providing temporary shelter but could no longer house them. As a result the duo had to “turn to Netizens for help.”
Ng also said that they were suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, were “extremely flustered about their situation,” and that neither “families, friends, nor the government would help.”
Autumn, who read from a piece of paper, said they did not want to go to a homeless shelter as it would split them, and added that “no one on my Facebook is going to listen or respond to my phone calls.”
“We’ve gone to the police, hospital, food banks and community shelters, and all of them don’t care. We’ve pretty much slept under a bridge,” added Ng, who did not reveal where their current location.
Ng and her mother Elaine Ng have long been estranged. She dropped out of school and moved to North Point with Autumn shortly after revealing that she was lesbian.
Autumn has been described by local media as a model and social media influencer. However, in a recent Facebook post she said she had worked as a teacher for eight years.
Elaine, who was subsequently interviewed, said it was wrong for her daughter to namedrop Chan to ask for help because he had been absent from most of her life.
“Etta has emotional problems. She saw a doctor last year, but hasn’t gone for therapy since she left Hong Kong.”
Elaine claimed that Autumn had been a “bad influence” on her daughter.
“She’s a 30-something with working experience. How can she tell an 18-year-old girl to film such a video? If they have no money, they should find work. They shouldn’t tell the world who Etta’s father is. People work hard and don’t rely
on someone else’s fame to get money.”
Elaine said the duo should not blame their parents, as “many people in Hong Kong get paid low wages but still go to work”.
When asked if she had been in contact with her daughter, she replied: “I don’t want to talk about it.”
