Chan told Chinese Phoenix TV that China has been bullied by international powers for a long time and started making progress only in recent years.
While China had corruption problem, so do other nations, including America, he said, according to a report in the South China Morning Post.
He went on to say that 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.
He was apparently angry over recent US media reports highlighting massive assets accumulated by some of the Chinese leaders, including Premier Wen Jiabao whose family assets were stated to be around USD 2.7 billion.
Wen's family had denied the report and had threatened to take legal action against New York Times, which published the report.
China's new leader, Xi Jinping has made corruption the main focus of his campaign, warning ruling Communist Party men that the party's hold on the country is threatened if graft is not weeded out.
During the show, Chan, mainly brought up in Hong Kong, also said that Chinese people should only criticise China among their own people, and not to foreigners.
"We (can) talk about it when the door is closed. To outsiders, (we should say), 'our country is the best'," he advised.
I agree with him..... if you observe corruption here you see how the rich get away with absolute looting, murder and no regard for law... i also agree with him that one should criticise his/her own country only among country men... not when the whole world is watching
America is a curse to Earth, inhabited by the most corrupt and selfish minds from all over the planet set to ruin the entire world by their dirty policies under the pretext of self-security. So what if Jackie has made a fortune from America, he has spoken out his mind. And a fact always remains a fact. The only economy of USA is the War Industry. For long it has been exporting death to other parts of the world but now its own schools are facing the music. The land is full of tyrants, wasted monarchs - dirty rascals!!! They are more harmful than the Taliban. WWII, Pearl Harbour, Cold-war, Veitnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, 9/11, Afghan invasion, and many more are nothing but the insider jobs of USA. Dump this corrupt country!!
Too many kicks to the head huh Jackie? Since you hate the U.S. so much, how about giving back some of that money you made off of movies here?
Screw him. Boycott Chan! Another racist, uppity Communist Party
