An alleged attack by protesters on Hong Kong actress Celine Ma has caught the attention of the Communist Youth League.

The Malay Mail said the Sin Chew Daily reported that the league, a youth movement of the People’s Republic of China for youth between the ages of 14 and 28, praised Ma for guarding the island state.

In a Weibo post, that had since been pinned, it introduces Ma’s previous television and film work.

It also hashtagged “thank you for guarding Hong Kong” and “our blood is the same like China’s flag”.

Following the attack, which occurred on Sunday evening at Mong Kok, the actress, who is best known for her role as May May in the long-running TVB television series A Kindred Spirit, required 11 stitches for injuries sustained to her head, chin and mouth.

Ma insisted she was beaten up despite footage that showed that her injuries were due to her losing her balance and falling to the ground after she was pushed by protesters.

She said she was filming protesters destroying Bank of China’s automated teller machine when the protesters surrounded her and one of them grabbed her mobile phone.

As she was being led away by a man who was worried about her safety, Ma said one of the protesters hit her head with a stick and pushed her to the ground.

Although feeling the pain from the beating, Ma said she would continue to speak up and the action of destroying the ATM machine was wrong.

She has publicly backed Hong Kong police and the Chinese Communist Party and commended the work of the Hong Kong Government, insisting “Hong Kong is part of China.”

In a July video, she described the protests against an extradition bill to mainland China as “rubbish”.Follow us on Social Media
