Elitist.

Yuck. She peaked in BMX Bandits. Since then became typical fake Hollywood schlock. This revolting elitist Amazon series is very fitting.

Sucks to be a pleb in a part of the world run by a communist regime. Not like the people can do anything about it after the iron fist of the mainland squeezed the pulp out of Hong Kong.

Communism claims to follow the Marxist idioms and roots of equality for all. But in a Communist regime they are all equal but some people (the Party elite) are 'more equal than others'. And foreigners like Nicole Kidman who feed the HK economy are 'more equal', amiright?

My gosh, yeah! She looks more like a construct than a real live woman. You know, the same way Madonna does.

Anyone spending money in Kong Kong is an enemy of democracy and freedom.

She should know better.

I'm very disappointed that anyone from AUS or USA are spending money in Hong Kong. That's more important than the quarantine junk, assuming everyone is vaccinated and being tested daily (which they aren't).

Kidman keeps playing the same part: the disheartened wife of a abusive, cheating tycoon, living a life of emotional destitution in yet, the most remarkable, elitist real estate imaginable: Monterey, CA; NYC and now, Hong Kong.

And, she keeps ‘acting’ behind her hair now, with Every shot slightly, out-of-focused.

Allegedly, Thandie Newton wanted Nicole to ‘guest star’ in WestWorld S4 but producers said “No thanks! She’s too much a prima donna now, and frankly, she now looks too ‘robotic’.”

I love how this article originally about a Hollywood star getting preferential treatment while locals face immense hurdles when going back to their homes from abroad turns into an anti-HK political rant.

Another one jumping on the "HK bad bad bad" bandwagon. Get off your high horse. This holier than attitude is getting old. Are you now going to call Nalvalny a traitor for returning to Russia?

Has it ever occurred to you that HKers, whether they support their government or not, are finding it incredibly difficult to get back home because of this obligatory 14-21 quarantine in a hotel? They can't see their relatives or friends. And this also applies to foreign residents who have to work there. This costs them time and money.

One thing I will say. Since the pandemic started, HK has NEVER banned foreign residents from returning. I can't say the same for Japan. And now, Japanese with absolutely no connection to HK are allowed in. Once again, another country allows Japanese in. Reciprocity, any one?

Globalist elites never have to obey the covid restrictions.

HK Govt is bad, bad, bad. So much for "S.A.R." Sorry for any confusion. I seldom want to say negative things about normal citizens from any country.

Kidman and Amazon are not from HK. They have a choice were to spend money and made a bad decision.

Russia has nothing to do with this story. Nalvalny is Russian. I'm not a fan, but think he shouldn't be arrested for political actions in Russia. Putin should have left Nalvalny alone and his crazy ideas would have ended his political efforts. There is one thing Nalvalny has going for him. He isn't a killer, but that doesn't make him a good candidate for PM or President of Russia.

As if we needed any new confirmation of these simple, sad facts of life:

"Elites don't have to follow the same rules and laws that you and I do."

"Elites are not responsible for the world's problems, instead you and I are."

"Elites demand we all do things one way, even if it's inconvenient or uncomfortable, while they're allowed to do the exact opposite with no criticism."

"Elites would be angry if we denited another elite similar special treatment. But all Elites would also be angry if we let everyone else do what only Elites can now do..."
