    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.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    With the way the Dems are running things on Capital Hill, I tend to agree with him.

    I love my God, my country, my flag, and my troops ....

    He doesn't think we are running things enough like communist China yet, I wonder how he feels about the fact that communism is slowly dying in china.

    In that case, I don't agree with him. But I still agree with him he says we are the most corrupt country (looking at the Dems on Capital Hill again). He's been in this country making movies since the late 70's. I wonder why he is just now saying this? I don't recall him being a douche before. Unless I missed it.

    He started saying things awhile back and I pretended I didn't hear it because I really like his movies, hopefully he shuts up so we can forget about it and go back to enjoying his sense of humor.
    I wish actors could keep from pissing off half their audiences by not yapping about their politics. If you want to run for office or be a commentator, just do it. If you want to be an actor or entertainer stick with entertaining me.
    There are some who have more subtle ways of letting us know their views and I don't have that big of a problem with that, but often they have to get out a soapbox and start preaching and that is when I want to kick the box out from under them.
