Jackie Chan's social media flooded by fans asking him to help estranged daughter lining up for free food

Chinese netizens are calling the attention of Jackie Chan after photos surfaced of his homeless daughter, Etta Ng, lining up for a free food drive.

Jackie and Etta have been estranged since she was born, as the actor had an extramarital affair with former beauty queen, Elaine Ng in 1999.

Chan was, and remains, married to Taiwanese actress, Joan Lin. They share one son named Jaycee.

Jackie and Elaine have a 19-year age gap and the actor has since expressed remorse over their affair. However, it's been reported that he does not send financial help to the Ngs.

In 2015, Etta also became estranged from her mother after coming out as gay and marrying Canadian influencer, Andi Autumn. They shared in a now-deleted YouTube video in 2018 that they are homeless "due to homophobic parents."

Now, new photos of Etta in line for free food have gone viral on the Chinese social media site Weibo—and fans want Jackie to start supporting his daughter.

The 22-year-old was spotted in Canada wearing an oversized coat while waiting for her warm meal. The photos come in time with the announcement that Jackie Chan just inked a multimillion deal with Disney for the upcoming action film, 1001 Nights.

Fans have flocked to Jackie's Weibo account to call for the star to financially support his daughter. Jaycee, was also called to attention for living a lavish life opposite to his step-sister.

"Your daughter is receiving food (for emergencies) on the street Don’t (you) care?" one comment said per the Malaysian news site, Hype MY.

Others queried if his upcoming autobiography will make mention of his only daughter, while some criticized Etta for not working for her money at 22.

In 2015, Etta spoke about her strained relationship with Chan but said that she did not need him at the time.

"He is my biological father but he is not in my life. He never existed in my life. I will never regard him as a father," she shared. "I am not angry with my father and have never wished to see him. As long as I have my mother with me, I don't need my father."
