TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Firebrand pro-Beijing lawmaker Junius Ho stormed off the set of a Hong Kong TV show today after demanding a ban on the ongoing Hong Kong protests and calling his fellow lawmaker "scum."

During a talk show on Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) at 11 a.m. this morning, Ho got into a heated debate with Hong Kong social activist and lawmaker Eddie Chu, just a day after videos surfaced of him cozying up with men in white T-shirts suspected of beating innocent civilians at an MTR station in Hong Kong on Sunday. During the debate, Ho called on a temporary ban on the protests and tried force Chu to tell activists to stop demonstrating against the extradition bill, before eventually angrily storming off the set.

At one point in the debate, much of which consisted of the two shouting over each other, Ho said that violence is not allowed, and therefore Chu should tell the viewers to stop the anti-extradition protests. Ho then grabbed Chu by the shoulder, shook him, and tried to make him face the camera to call on Hong Kong activists to end their demonstrations.

Chu refused to follow Ho's orders, and countered that Ho should tell the men in white T-shirts to stop their violent acts. Junius replied by saying he did not care what color shirts the people were wearing and again tried to force Chu to call for an end to the protests.    [FULL  STORY]
