CY Leung’s daughter: Hong Kong taxpayers fund ‘my beautiful shoes and dresses’

Hong Kong Chief Executive CY Leung’s daughter Chai Yan Leung made some very questionable comments on Facebook earlier today.

Seemingly responding to negative comments about a necklace she wears in her profile picture, she wrote:

This is actually a beautiful necklace bought at Lane Crawford (yes- funded by all you HK taxpayers!! So are all my beautiful shoes and dresses and clutches!! Thank you so much!!!!) Actually maybe I shouldn’t say ‘all you’- since most of you here are probably unemployed hence have all this time obsessed with bombarding me with messages.

Here’s the full screenshot:

Considering that tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of Hongkongers are protesting in the streets demanding that her father resign, this social media activity strikes us as tone deaf to say the least.

Besides protesting for the right to fully democratically elect their own leader, Hong Kong citizens are unhappy with growing economic inequality in this Special Administrative Region of China since it was handed over from Britain in 1997.

Chai Yan Leung made headlines earlier this year when she posted self harm photos on Facebook and criticized her mother as lacking loyalty and virtue.
