HONG KONG — Jackie Chan suggests in a recent interview that protests should be restricted in the freewheeling Chinese city of Hong Kong.

The action star lamented that Hong Kong has become a city of protest, where people “scold China, scold the leaders, scold anything, protest against anything.”

“There should be regulations on what can and cannot be protested,” Chan told the Southern People Weekly, which published his comments Wednesday. He didn’t say what kinds of protests he thought should be restricted.

In 2009, Chan sparked outrage among lawmakers in Hong Kong when said he said, “I’m not sure if it’s good to have freedom or not.” He also said he was “beginning to feel that we Chinese need to be controlled.”
