While most public figures would try to defend their children’s actions good or bad,Jackie Chan has publicly denounced the action of his 31 year old son,Jaycee after he was found with drugs during a raid on his apartment. Ironically, Chan is an anti-Drug ambassador in China.
“When I first heard the news, I was absolutely enraged.As a public figure, I feel very ashamed; as his dad, I’m very sad and disappointed. But the person who feels heartbroken the most is his mom.I hope our younger generation will learn from Jaycee’s mistake and stay far away from drug abuse.”
I would like to take this opportunity and say to Jaycee: you’ve done something wrong and you have to be responsible for the consequences. I’m your dad and I’ll always be with you. We will face the road ahead of us together.I should also take some of this responsibility because as his dad, I didn’t teach him well.”
“Therefore, on behalf of Jaycee and myself, I extend our deepest apologies to everyone for the negative impact this has caused on society. Thank you.”
In 2012, Jackie said he is leaving his $130m fortune to charity and said his son,who is also an actor with over 20 flopped movies needs to make his own money.
