Jackie Chan’s 17-year-old daughter Etta Ng has publicly revealed that she is a lesbian. The teenager shared a photo of herself on Instagram standing against a rainbow with her face hidden and captioned it ““🌈 #lgbtqai #lgbt #lesbian#androgynous.”
In a separate post, Etta admitted she was ‘speechless’ at how much support she has received after growing up with a lot of ‘negativity and close mindedness’ throughout her life.
“I am in awe at the amount of support and love poured my way. I am speechless at how followers went to my Girlfriend @andiautumn and my account to show us both so much positivity. People all over the world have been rooting us on as Hong Kong media continues to mock. I’ve grown up in a world of negativity and close mindedness but I am at that point where I realise that I can use my experience to tell my truths and help others just like me. Thankfully I’ve grown since the days I was powerless and uncertain what the world has for me. Thank you for the enormous outpour of love and acceptance. 🌈❤️🙌🏻💪🏻”
Etta’s girlfriend Andi Autumn also thanked netizens for showing them support after they went public with her sexuality.
“Thank you to all of those who have shown love and support towards @stolenmilktea and I. We appreciate everyone’s kind words and it’s honestly giving us more energy to fight for what’s right. We will continue to share our journey and hope we can help others along the way. Let’s make this world a peaceful and understanding one. #pansexual #lgbtqai #loveislove #lovealwayswins #queer #loveyourself”
Etta is estranged from her father Jackie Chan. The Hollywood star also had issues with his son Jaycee Chan who was convicted on drug charge in 2015.
Jaycee Chan spent 6 months in prison after Chinese court found him guilty of hosting others to take drugs.
