#1 Jackie Chan back in action, branding US more corrupt than China01-12-2013, 09:43 PM
Action star Jackie Chan has once again sparked controversy by branding America the world's "most corrupt" country in a TV interview.
His comments were slammed by The Washington Post's foreign affairs blogger Max Fisher as "anti-American" and a reflection of China's insecurity about itself.
Chan told Phoenix TV that China has been bullied by international powers for a long time and only began making progress in recent years.
Chan added that while China has a corruption problem, so do other nations, including America.
"If you talk about corruption, the entire world - America - has no corruption?" said the actor.
He went on to say America is "the most corrupt [country] in the world" - not China. "Where does this great breakdown [of corruption] come from? It started exactly from the [rest of the] world, the United States … If our own countrymen don't support our country, who will?" he said.
If you were talking about our creeping socialism Jackie I would agree with you. It is obvious that that isn't it though, no one is forcing you to stay here and get rich, you can always just go home.
There goes another entertainer I used to enjoy but probably won't be able to watch, now that he has opened his yap.
