‘Hong Kong is not China’: Artist’s illustrations go viral Part 2
While the Facebook post has racked up nearly 4,000 “likes” from supporters, others accused the artist of generalizing and directing unnecessary hate at the people of mainland China.
“I understand HK is going through a difficult time right now. You have every right to be angry, but if you are angry, be angry at the government and the communist party,” wrote one Maggie Chou. “Posts like this will hurt mainlanders and make mainlanders think HK people are arrogant. I know you are proud of your distinct identity, but please don’t do it on the cost of others.”
“Comparing mainland’s worst with HK’s best,” wrote Xiang Min. “Free speech? More like hate speech.”
