Even as pro-democracy protests rage on in Hong Kong, the daughter of leader CY Leung has allegedly posted disparaging remarks on her Facebook page mocking tax payers.
Chai Yan Leung, 22-years-old and a law student, has created quite a stir online and angered protestors with her Facebook post which uses a derogatory tone.
Chai's post was taking digs at comments which criticized a neck piece she was donning in her profile display picture. Chai attacked the commenters with remarks that the necklace was not a dog collar. She also caustically suggested that her expenses were borne by the public and not her father's wages.
"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," read Chai's post.
Chai's flippancy on the social network did not stop here. She went on to mock her critics for their inability to speak English and their intelligence.
Whether the account was indeed Chai's remains in question. However, several Hong Kong-based publications have reported in the past that the Facebook page in question indeed belonged to her.
Based on reports, Chai's mother has previously commented on a post on the same Facebook account when the 22-year old had indicated she had slit her wrists. The fact that her mother Regina commented at the time, seems to validate the genuineness of the page.
Chai's Facebook page has been pulled down since the fiasco. The protestors meanwhile are calling for her father CY Leung to quit as Chief Executive. However, China continues to back the besieged leader as the conflict with pro-democracy protesters wages on.
