hinese media outlets are praising yet another foreigner who was filmed fighting back against the inconveniences of the ongoing protests in Hong Kong.
In video shared by state media channels on Twitter and YouTube, an angry expat is seen attempting to clean up a road barricade. “Unbelievable! I’ve also been living in this city!” he grumbles in English while also shooing away some protesters, telling them to “go home!”
Eventually, the guy snatches a phone out of the hands of a journalist who’s filming him, telling the reporter that he has no right to be filming him before handing the phone back and continuing to take down the roadblock. CGTN calls the man “righteous.”
Here’s another angle of his confrontation with the reporter.
One man got visibly angry and cleared the barricades. “You have no right to film me,” he told one journalist. He then told all the protesters that they should go home. #antiELABhk pic.twitter.com/f1ekqoxz9I

Road barricade expat joins a growing list of foreigners who have had their actions shared by China’s state media including the angry Australian at Hong Kong’s airport who told protesters to “get a job” and the American conspiracy vlogger who asked one demonstrator if he knew that Hitler was “elected through democracy.”
