Twitter Reacts To News That Jackie Chan Plans To Give Away $370 Million To Charity, Leaving Nothing For His Son
Legendary movie star, Jackie Chan is planning to give away an enormous $370 million to charity and leave nothing for his only son, Jaycee as a life lesson.
Reports say that Chan believes “if he (his son) is capable, he can make his own money. And if he is not, he will just be wasting mine.”
Jackie Chan’s relationship with his 38-year-old son has been under rocks since 2015 when his son got busted by Chinese authorities for drug use.
Jaycee spent six months in prison for the crime.
Jackie Chan, who is China’s 2009 anti-drug ambassador apologized for his son’s actions at the time saying that he was “very angry and ashamed” of his son.
It is now widely reported that Mr Chan is planning to teach his son a life lesson and work his way to the top by not leaving him his wealth as an inheritance.
Rather, he has already made up his mind to give it away as charity.
Twitter went abuzz after the news was revealed on the microblogging site.

Here are some of the mixed reactions from Twitter users;
“Jackie Chan planning to leave his estimated $370 million to charity & not giving a dime to his son is wrong; He can give to charity but he shouldn’t ignore his son. Seems his son hasn’t been showing signs of responsibility but Jackie should nurture him as a father not ghost him” – Daniel Regha @DanielRegha
“He probably hasn’t shown signs of responsibility. Also, no one should feel entitled to anyone’s wealth” – Abimbola Edu @Abimbola_coal
“Wickedness! Not everyone is meant to make it by striving on their own” – Mr Wick @amenomere
“I hate rich parents that parent like this like just make life easier for your child it costs you nothing!?” – @BALUCIAGA
iHarare understands that Jackie Chan shared these sentiments back in 2011 during one of his interviews in America.
