Jackie Chan has apologised to society and the public after his son was arrested on drugs charges in Beijing.
The Hong Kong actor wrote on his blog that Jaycee Chan will have to face the consequences of his actions, but that they will do it together.
The recent news about my son, Jaycee, is very shocking and the impact it has caused on society is heartbreaking. When I first heard the news, I was absolutely enraged. As a public figure, I feel very ashamed; as his dad, I’m very sad and disappointed.'
'I would like to take this opportunity and say to Jaycee: you’ve done something wrong and you have to be responsible for the consequences. I’m your dad and I’ll always be with you. We will face the road ahead of us together,' he went on to add.
'I should also take some of this responsibility because as his dad, I didn’t teach him well. Therefore, on behalf of Jaycee and myself, I extend our deepest apologies to everyone for the negative impact this has caused on society.'
Jaycee was detained with Taiwenese movie star Kai Ko last Thursday, as part of China's biggest anti-drug crackdown to happen in two decades.
Police have said both actors tested positive for marijuana as well as admitting to using the drug, with 100 grams being found in Chan's home.
