Shawn Yue has angered Chinese netizens again after his clothing brand, MADNESS, was accused of supporting the Hongkong pro-independence movement.

It all started when his label released previews of its upcoming collection, which included a sweater with a design that showed two hands, one holding up five fingers and the other, one. The design was assumed to be the same gestures that Hongkong pro-independence protesters have used to signify that they want all five of their demands, and not one less, to be fulfilled by the Chinese government.
