Jackie Chan’s daughter comes out as lesbian

by | Entertainment

Jackie Chan’s estranged daughter took to Instagram October 5 and came out as a lesbian.

His 18-year-old daughter Etta Ng posted a photo of her in front of a rainbow background with the caption “#lgbtqai #lgbt #lesbian #androgynous” and a rainbow emoji, the symbol of the LGBT community.

Social media influencer Andi Autumn revealed that she is Ng’s girlfriend the same day she came out.

In the post, she shared the hardships the couple faced together including discrimination in Hong Kong and other places they have been.

“We’ve encountered a lot of discrimination from family, friends, and the Hong Kong society. We are living in such an international city and yet so many people have their minds closed off,” Autumn wrote in the caption.

“But none of it matters when I know every morning [you’re] going to be next to me. I love you,” she said.

Two days after she came out, Ng thanked the people who supported her decision to come out.

“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,” she wrote.

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

Ng has previously disclosed her estranged relationship with her famous action star father, saying that he views him only as an actor and her biological father.

“He is not my dad. I have no feelings for him. He is my biological father but he is not in my life,” Express quoted her as saying.

“I would not say that he is my dad. I would say, ‘Oh, Jackie Chan, an actor’.”
