Actor Jackie Chan has spoken out about his son’s recent drug arrest, insisting he is “ashamed” by the incident.
Jacyee Chan and Taiwanese actor Kai Ko were detained following a drug bust in Beijing last week, according to the South China Morning Post. Following the arrest, the actors reportedly tested positive for marijuana and confessed to using the drug.
The Rush Hour star, who was appointed an anti-drug ambassador by China’s National Narcotics Control Commission in 2009, has now broken his silence over the drug charges and is apologizing for his son’s actions.
In a post on his website he writes, “I’d like to thank everyone for your care and concerns. The recent news about my son, Jaycee, is very shocking and the impact it has caused on society is heartbreaking. When I first heard the news, I was absolutely enraged. As a public figure, I feel very ashamed; as his dad, I’m very sad and disappointed. But the person who feels heartbroken the most is his mom.
“I hope our younger generation will learn from Jaycee’s mistake and stay far away from drug abuse. I would like to take this opportunity and say to Jaycee: you’ve done something wrong and you have to be responsible for the consequences. I’m your dad and I’ll always be with you. We will face the road ahead of us together.
“I should also take some of this responsibility because, as his dad, I didn’t teach him well. Therefore, on behalf of Jaycee and myself, I extend our deepest apologies to everyone for the negative impact this has caused on society. Thank you.”
The 32 year old has been charged with “providing a shelter for others to abuse drugs” and faces three years in prison if convicted.
