I had no choice but to leave midway through Lady Gaga's show on Wednesday after her insulting remarks about Hong Kong.
Her flippant claims - both on Twitter and during the show - that our streets are lined with fake Birkins are not only incorrect but defamatory.
Counterfeit merchandise appears in all cities and to imply that Hong Kong is a purveyor of fakes is irresponsible.
She may thinly disguise this as freedom of expression or simply a cheap joke in the hope of getting a few laughs.
However freedom of expression entails wisdom, knowledge and respect.
To show a complete lack of respect to another city and its people is simply unacceptable.Not only do her cries of "I love Hong Kong" ring exceptionally hollow but her claim to be a fighter for equality, freedom and the breaking down of prejudice is equally unconvincing.
She should apologize to Hong Kong or simply - as she most likely will - continue to hide in her castle of arrogance and hypocrisy and be a phony like the fake Birkins she keeps talking about. Justin Yau
