Because of coronavirus outbreak, the entertainment industry is heavily affected and most productions are forced to cancel or postpone. Many artistes’ work are suspended as well.
Previously, John Ching (程東) played a man with supernatural power in God of Gamblers II (賭俠) film with Stephen Chow (周星馳) and confessed he had zero income through Weibo on 11th April. He said: “A gloomy day on 11th April! My income is totally zero!”
Apparently, the netizens show their supports when Hong Kong artistes such as Gregory Wong (王宗堯) and Lee Yee Man (李綺雯) are jobless. They will create posts and urge everyone to help them by using different methods. However, John failed to win supports from Chinese netizens despite pledging his loyalty to China repeatedly on Weibo. They even made fun of him and said: “Honestly speaking, have you used your supernatural power yet?”
