Jackie Chan

I'M ASHAMED OF MY SON

After Weed Bust in China

Jackie Chan says he's "VERY ASHAMED" of his son Jaycee -- claiming his 31-year-old son humiliated his family after getting busted for pot in China. 

Chan's son was caught in a huge drug crackdown last week -- with cops saying they found about 3.5 ounces of the green stuff in Jaycee's Beijing home. 

Now, his famous father has penned a bizarre letter to the public -- blasting his kid ... and essentially saying he FAILED as a father.

"When I first heard the news, I was absolutely enraged" ... Jackie wrote in a letter posted on his official website.

"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."

Its just a little bit of weed Jackie. Geeezzz not like he killed someone or got busted with coke. Way to call him out and hulilate him in front of the whole world. Yes you did fail as a father, by not keeping that **** in your family. I would disown him as a father for this humility

The Asian culture takes great personal shame and blame when their family does something wrong or illegal.They can be shunned from the community.

I remember the Virginia Tech shooting: the killer, who was Korean, parents left their home and quiet literally hid. Their daughter explained that her parents were greatly ashamed.

oh really     

What is so bizarre about his open letter .?
Just because it doesnt fit into American culture doesnt make it bizarre.
It is about disgracing the honor of his family

He also went on to say, "I not only blame myself. I blame Chris Tucker for getting me high that Friday on the set of whatever those movies were called. Ahh. We smoke so much weed. Got sooo high. Last time I got that high, I remember it like yesterday. It was last wee. my son sold me an ounce of kind.

Relax, Jackie. He'll be OK, you're still a good father and I'm very impressed by your fatherly guilt trip. I bet he won't do that again. Very impressive!
