Hong Kong actress Celine Ma ended up with stitches on her chin and the back of her head after she reportedly confronted protesters in Hong Kong.
According to her friend, singer Mandy Yan, Ma needed stitches to her chin and the back of her head.
Yan added that Ma was fine after receiving treatment at the hospital and would not be commenting on the incident.
Ma, or her real name, Leung Wing-ngan, made the claims after filming protesters damaging a Bank of China ATM at Mong Kok, one of several Chinese companies targeted over the weekend.
Footage, however, has surfaced online, that depicted her attempting to film the protesters, before yelling and lunging forward to punch and kick protesters who stood motionless in front of her.
This is a clear evidence that the HK actress #celinema from #tvb who claimed herself being hit by protestors was actually the one who attacked first! Protestors even tried to persuade her to stay calm and brought her away. #HongKongProtests #StandwithHK #Hongkongers pic.twitter.com/x7vzsxjVPK

Ma is seen pushed back, losing her balance and falling to the ground before a protester sprays her with what appears to be paint.
She has publicly backed Hong Kong police and the Chinese Communist Party and commended the work of the Hong Kong Government, insisting “Hong Kong is part of China.”
In a July video, she described the protests against an extradition bill to mainland China as “rubbish”. – MMO
