Jackie Chan’s Estranged Daughter Cries for Help on Being Homeless

Jackie Chan’s Estranged Daughter Cries for Help on Being Homeless
Jackie Chan



You might remember Jackie Chan‘s estranged daughter, Etta Ng, came out as lesbian in Oct 2017 through an Instagram picture of herself in front of a rainbow background. Since then, she has moved to to Canada and dropped from people’s radar.

She has since resurfaced in a video that’s now been trending. In the video, you can see the 18-year-old Etta with her 30-year-old girlfriend, Andi Autumn, reading off a script and admitting they were left homeless by homophobic parents and have approached a number of friends but were turned away.  

They further explained that that they will be split up if they turn to the government for help, so they have no recourse but to make the video and bring this out to the public in the hopes that they can get assistance.

Etta’s mom, Elaine Ng, is already aware of the video and is not rushing to help out her daughter and further calls out her girlfriend, Andi Autumn, for being a bad influence on Etta.

As a parent, I can’t help but feel extremely triggered by this. I feel this is exactly what the problem is with some kids nowadays, wanting to be taken seriously but blaming everybody else but themselves when they hit a wall. Now, they’re seeking help and validation through the internet and, it’s frustrating and I know I am not the only one who thinks so.

Elaine had to raise Etta without the help of her dad, Jackie Chan, but it’s no excuse for the kid’s behavior. I don’t blame the mother either because we can only do so much for our kids and Etta is already 18 which is legally an adult. One can only hope that we have raised our kids well enough to take on the challenges of the real world. 

If, by some chance, you get to read this Etta, you need to understand that society is not responsible for putting a roof over your head nor for putting food at the table.  Moreover, you stop being your parent’s responsibility when you left home to live with your 30-year-old girlfriend in another country.  If you feel that you are responsible enough to make the decision to leave your parent’s home, you are responsible enough to fend for yourself. Remember, this is the path that you chose to take. Nobody forced you into that situation.  

Second, I do not see any disability that would prevent you both from getting a job so why don’t you both try getting one? It’s how normal people, like myself, pay for shelter and food.  I believe it’s a matter of both of you not wanting to do any work that you feel is beneath you like maybe picking up trash or working at McDonald’s. I, for one, do not find it demeaning to have to do manual work that puts food on the table. What is demeaning for me is making a video asking people to help you out because you can’t help yourselves out. If you are desperate enough to stay together, then please consider getting a job.
