China’s state media says US can now ‘enjoy’ protests after criticizing China’s handling of unrest in Hong Kong

China’s state media is harnessing the current wave of protests across America to call out the US government for ‘hypocrisy’ after it criticized China’s handling of Hong Kong protests last year.

Beijing has been outraged at the US for criticizing how it handled months of protests in Hong Kong — including the White House openly supporting Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement.

Over the weekend, Chinese officials and its state-run media made the most of the current US protests, according to The Straits Times.

The protests were triggered by the death of George Floyd, a 45-year-old black man who died after a white officer kneeled on his neck for more than eight minutes.
