Action star Jackie Chan’s son Jaycee was arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession on Aug. 14, and Jackie is ‘ashamed’ about it, according to a new report.

Jackie Chan, 60, is blaming himself after his son Jaycee Chan, 31, was arrested in China for drug possession on Aug. 14. The actor reportedly posted online that Jaycee’s arrest is his own fault because he “failed to educate” his son.

Jackie Chan On Son’s Arrest: ‘Ashamed’ Of Jaycee After Drug Bust

After his son’s marijuana possession arrest, Jackie posted the following on the website Sina Weibo (China’s equivalent to our Twitter), according to the LA Times.

“Regarding this issue with my son Jaycee, I feel very angry and very shocked. As a public figure, I’m very ashamed. As a father, I’m heartbroken. I have failed to educate my son. I must also take responsibility, and in my son’s name take a deep bow and apologize to the public.” 

Jackie also said, “I hope all young people will learn a lesson from Jaycee and stay far from the harm of drugs. I say to Jaycee that you have to accept the consequences when you do something wrong. As your father, I’m going to face the road together with you,” according to ABC News.

Jackie only child was arrested in China last week, CNN confirmed. China famously named Jackie an anti-drug ambassador in 2009.

Jaycee was found with more than 100 grams (that’s about 3.5 ounces) of marijuana in his house, according to the LA Times. The report also says that Jaycee could potentially face up to three years behind bars if he’s convicted of accommodating drug users. In China, accommodating drug users is a more serious offense than consuming drugs.

Jackie reportedly announced in 2011 that he will leave no money to his only child, Jaycee, when he dies. He will donate his money to charity instead, according to Metro UK. “If he is capable, he can make his own money. If he is not, then he will just be wasting my money,” Jackie reportedly said to Channel NewsAsia in 2011.

Jackie Chan should be ashamed. Before he can educate his son he needs to educate himself. Cannabis has been used safely in China and around the world for millennia. Instead of siding with the repressive, corrupt government, he should stand up for his son. It is the Chinese officials and police who belong on that dreaded list.

Why should anyone feel bad about a bad law being broken? If anyone should feel bad, it’s the people in government that continue to allow bad laws to stay in place.

The only thing Jackie Chan should be ashamed of is ‘The Spy Next Door’. Just awful!

It was “humble” of him to take responsibility. He was absolutely right that he did not educate his son. Maybe he was too busy with his wealth and helping others that he forgot to share his wealth to his son and spend time with him. He should be embarrased of himself. Lastly, jaycee is not his only child. He has a daughter whom he won’t leave any wealth as well. Well, the mother of the girl doesn’t need his support anyways.

You have zero freedom in China, your favorite Internet websites are censored, your favorite movies and TV programs are edited out for obscenity and violence. You’ll get a bullet in the head if you steal, rape or murder.

I think it’s really cruel that he won’t leave a dime to his own son, that’s ridiculous.
And it’s just marijuana, calm the F down, Mr. Chan (:

I would be soooo pissed off if my millionaire dad wouldn’t leave me any money, lol. Super-cruel

he’s actually saving them from doom…just think about that for a sec

No one is entitled to another person’s wealth just because they’re related. A real man/woman earns his way to the top like Jackie.

Jackie earned his way to the top. Jaycee did not. You guys do not understand Jackie’s method of parenting because you are part of a generation that is spoiled, gullible and naive. For the majority of you, the traditional way is not good enough and outdated.

Do you honestly think Jackie wouldn’t give a bit of money for his son? It’s publicity at its very best. Even so, giving to charity is better than giving to someone who is…or was…already better off. So what’s the problem.

Drugs are illegal. I hate the American view that it is OK. You guys make everything seem OK. Drugs are drugs. Drugs are mmmkaaayyy.
