Jordan Chan, a Hong Kong actor and singer is facing a possible six months’ jail for uploading a photo of his ballot paper for Hong Kong’s district council elections on social media.

Malay Mail quoted Hong Kong daily Ming Pao as saying the pro-China star had uploaded a photo on his Weibo account and hashtags a caption that encourages to be an upright Hong Kong citizen and asked Hong Kong to ‘keep it up’.

30 minutes later, the photo was replaced with another photo with a new hashtag that says that Chan has done his duty as a Hong Kong citizen.
