The “Crazy Rich Asians” movie is setting records for an all Asian cast. It will easily win its third box office title during the Labor Day weekend box office in the US, with a total of around $25 million at 3,536 North American sites for the Friday-Monday period, early estimates showed.

The movie has sparked various parodies but on the fringe, many are pointing out the oddities of today’s world, with the rush to watch crazy rich people wasting themselves, yet ignoring the ‘crazy poor asians.”

The South China Morning Post criticised the Hong Kong authorities for shunning away from what it called ‘Crazy poor Asians’, while rich Hong Kongers walks past homeless people using public benches for sleeping.

The video tells of the story of the government putting up metal separations to prevent people from reclining on these park benches.

This while rich people pass by with their dogs pooping around.

The journalist also tells of the story of a pizza delivery man who left his dog in his car for four hours and this caused a massive backlash from concerned citizens, worried about the health of the dog.

But they are not concerned with the fate of the homeless people. At the same time, he had a jibe for the ‘Crazy Rich Asian’ movie.

Enough of Crazy Rich Asians, Yonden Lhatoo wants to know why we aren’t talking about crazy poor Hongkongers.

Jon M. Chu (“Now You See Me 2”) directed the contemporary romantic comedy “Crazy Rich Asians,” based on the acclaimed worldwide bestseller by Kevin Kwan.

The story follows New Yorker Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Henry Golding), to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick’s family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. Not only is he the scion of one of the country’s wealthiest families, but also one of its most sought-after bachelors.

Being on Nick’s arm puts a target on Rachel’s back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick’s own disapproving mother (Michelle Yeoh) taking aim. It soon becomes clear that the only thing crazier than love is family, in this funny and romantic story sure to ring true for audiences everywhere.
