SINGAPORE: Hong Kong action film star Jackie Chan said his recent comments about Hong Kong becoming a "city of protest" could have been better phrased.
He was speaking to the media during a promotional tour of his latest movie "CZ12" at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) on Tuesday.
Chan had recently said that protests in Hong Kong should be restricted.
This caused an uproar and he came under fire for his comment.
But Chan told Channel NewsAsia he might have been misunderstood and said he meant well.
Chan said: "I always come from a positive point of view but some people blow the issue up. I won’t bother explaining to them because it might get worse.
"My intention was good, perhaps my manner of delivery was wrong."
Chan was in town, with two co—stars, to promote his latest action blockbuster.
He also presented gifts and movie tickets to 20 children under the care of the Chinese Development Assistance Council.
Chan said: "I’m very happy that I am able to be here to see these children and to help them."
Other than the meet—the—fans session at Plaza Singapura, the cast will also attend a gala premiere at Resorts World Sentosa Festive Grand Theatre on Tuesday night.
