Hong Kong bad boy Edison Chen (陳興華) recently found himself a victim of collateral damage simply for wearing his favourite red Rockets jersey (he’s a huge fan of the basketball team).

This came after Houston Rockets’ general manager Daryl Morey posted a controversial tweet of an image with the phrase “fight for freedom, stand with Hong Kong”.

Morey’s tweet resulted in the Chinese Basketball Association cutting ties with the Rockets. CCTV 5 (main sports broadcaster) and Tencent (NBA’s exclusive digital partner) have announced that they will stop airing Rockets games.

Naturally, Chinese fans were triggered with Chen’s recent photos of him sporting the Rockets jersey and asked him to delete them. Several netizens even questioned if the 38-year-old actor is indirectly supporting the Hong Kong protests.

Houston Rockets insulted China. Please delete the message,” someone wrote. “Brother, are you ready to remove the jerseys from retail shops?” another asked, referring to Chen’s upcoming clothing collaboration with Yao Ming (who was once attached to the Rockets).

Since the photos are still on his Instagram account, it appears that Chen is unbothered by netizens’ opinion.
