When the host asked if he was forced to make comments regarding the 2015 China Victory Day parade and 2016 South China Sea dispute on Weibo at the time, Cho Lam explained: “I prefer to support my own country and it is normal to give my feedback. However, I am worried about people “attacking” me and why must it happen this way?”
