  • - [Mulan] It is my duty to fight.

  • - Disney's live-action "Mulan" has become a surprise flashpoint in Hong Kong's ongoing pro-democracy, anti-police brutality protests after the film's star, Chinese-American actress Crystal Liu, took to social media to voice her support for the Hong Kong police force.

  • Liu's statement sparked instant outcry in Hong Kong, where the local police have been accused by international human rights' groups of excessive use of force in confrontations with protestors and the public.

  • Posting to her 65 million followers on the Chinese social media platform Weibo, Liu shared an image originally released by the state-backed "People's Daily" that read, "I support Hong Kong's police.

  • "You can beat me up now."

  • She wrote, "What a shame for Hong Kong.

  • "#IAlsoSupportTheHongKongPolice."

  • Outside of China the hashtag #BoycottMulan began to trend on Twitter and Instagram.

  • One of the most viral tweets came from Twitter user S.D. Norton who wrote, "Liu supports police brutality and oppression "in Hong Kong.

  • "Liu is a naturalized American citizen, it must be nice.

  • "Meanwhile she pisses on people fighting for democracy.

  • "Retweet please, Hong Kong doesn't get enough support.

  • "#BoycottMulan."

  • Comments on Liu's Instagram have similarly condemned her social media post and likewise called for a boycott of the film.

  • There have also been comments attacking Liu for her views on the official Mulan Instagram and Facebook Accounts.

  • We have excellent news.

  • The matchmaker has found you an auspicious match.

  • - It is decided, come and sit down.
