(Associated Press) Jackie Chan suggests in a recent interview that protests should be restricted in the freewheeling Chinese city of Hong Kong.

The action star lamented that Hong Kong has become a city of protest, where people “scold China, scold the leaders, scold anything, protest against anything.”

“There should be regulations on what can and cannot be protested,” Chan told the Southern People Weekly, which published his comments Wednesday. He didn’t say what kinds of protests he thought should be restricted.

The star of movies such as “Rush Hour” and “Rumble in the Bronx” triggered a backlash three years ago with similar comments on the need to restrict freedom in his hometown.
