Following Jaycee Chan’s arrest last month for possessing and consuming marijuana, his father, Jackie Chan has been reportedly trying to get him acquitted.
Lately, the Hong Kong superstar was spotted on the billboards on Shanghai for a brand of mantou, one that Jaycee had endorsed for since March this year. His son even presented these mantou to Jackie at his 60th birthday celebration this April.
But the 31-year-old has been replaced by his father after the saga, rumoured to be in a bid to compensate the brand for damaging its image. Netizens remarked that it was unbelievable to see such a big name, like Jackie, endorsing a meal that can be bought at RMB$1 (approximately 20 cents).
It is believed that ever since Jackie became the brand ambassador, sales of mantou has been rising steadily.
