On July 21, 63-year-old TVB veteran actor Joseph Lee (李國麟) celebrated his daughter’s 15th birthday on social media. The proud father wrote on Weibo, “Yesterday was my daughter’s birthday! So happy!”
Joseph shared three photos of his daughter celebrating her birthday at a restaurant, in which one was of him kissing his daughter on the lips. This picture apparently ignited some disapproval among netizens, calling Joseph “disgusting” and “perverted”.
“I don’t think you should kiss your daughter like that,” said one netizen. “Males and females should be treated differently after all.” Another netizen simply said, “Disgusting.”
However, there were also many netizens who didn’t find the picture revolting, but sweet. Defending Joseph, one netizen said, “If you think this is dirty, then everything would be dirty to you.” Many others left encouraging comments with birthday wishes.
