Two images have circulated on Twitter alongside a claim they show the teenage son of a Hong Kong celebrity couple wearing pro-democracy T-shirts. The posts emerged after the teenager sparked anger from some Chinese social media users by suggesting on Instagram that semi-autonomous Hong Kong is "not in China". But the images have been altered from an old photo of the teenager in which he was wearing a sports T-shirt without any pro-democracy slogans.
