The lesbian daughter of Hollywood superstar, Jackie Chan, has been homeless for a month due to ‘homophobic parents’.
Etta Ng, 18, came out in October last year.
Over the weekend, she posted a heartbreaking video on YouTube saying she and her girlfriend are homeless and desperate. Her girlfriend, Andi Autumn, 30 is also in the video looking visibly upset.
The couple said they have tried everything to get off the streets but have not received help. That’s why they made the video to plead to the public for assistance.
‘We’ve been homeless for a month, due to homophobic parents.We’ve pretty much slept other a bridge and other things,’ Ng said reading from a bit of paper.
‘I don’t even understand what is going on because we’ve gone to the police, we’ve gone to the hospital, the food banks, LGBTQ community shelters, and all of them just don’t give a shit.
‘So that’s why we’re making this video, because we don’t know what to do at this point.’
Their video comes days after the couple was spotted at a service station where Ng tells the cashier ‘I want to find my dad’.
It is believed the couple has been living in Canada, but nobody has seen Ng at work or school for months.
Ng’s mother, Elaine Ng, reportedly filed a missing person report for her daughter in February.
Ng said her daughter had a history of ’emotional problems’.
‘Etta has emotional problems. She was seeing a doctor last year, but she hasn’t gone to therapy since she left Hong Kong,’ she told Coconuts.
Her mother also said if the women did not have any money they should try to find a job.
‘Many people in Hong Kong get paid low wages, but they still go to work. If they don’t have work, then they’ll film these videos to complain about their parents? How many of these videos would we see in a day then?’ she said.
She also complained that her daughter should not ‘name drop’ her father who has not been involved in much of her life.
‘They shouldn’t film a clip telling others they are broke and who Etta’s father is. People all over the world work hard and don’t rely on someone else’s fame to get money.’
After his daughter revealed she was a lesbian, Chan was asked to comment on her sexuality.
He simply said: ‘If she likes it that’s fine.’
