Jackie Chan has sparked anger over his pro-Beijing comments after being asked about the ongoing unrest that has left his hometown Hong Kong in chaos.   

The 65-year-old celebrity said he was proud of being Chinese and that he loved his motherland but that the 'recent events in Hong Kong' broke his heart, as he urged the public to join him in safeguarding Chinese sovereignty. 

It comes as one of China's biggest actresses Liu Yifei, who is set to star as the eponymous character in Disney's upcoming Mulan remake tweeted a pro-police message to her 65million followers.

The naturalised American's Liu's comments sparked outrage among Hong Kong protesters and calls to boycott her latest film after backing Beijing authority's attempts to crackdown on pro-democracy protests.
