Former Wallaby-turned-reality star Nick ‘The Honey Badger’ Cummins has been criticized for featuring in a new commercial campaign encouraging tourism in Hong Kong, as the city struggles under the communist tyranny of China.

In a three-part video series, the 35-year-old, who was Australia’s Bachelor in 2018, explores Hong Kong’s finest tourist destinations, enjoys local cuisine, and parties with locals in a post-pandemic era.

“Hong Kong is one of my favorite cities in the entire globe.” The people, the culture, the hustle and bustle – you just can’t top it,’ Hong Kong Sevens regular Cummins said in a statement.

From the restaurants and nightlife to outdoor activities and exploration, there is truly something for everyone. I can’t wait for Australians to visit Hong Kong like I have.”

The director of the Hong Kong Tourism Board in Australia and New Zealand, Karen Macmillan, remarked, “The video series highlights Hong Kong’s unique East-meets-West spirit and the tremendous diversity of activities available.”

While the campaign attempts to attract Australians to visit Hong Kong now that Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted, some argue the videos do not accurately portray the city’s culture.

Jane Poon, a member of the Australia-Hong Kong Link, criticized Cummins for his engagement in the campaign, stating to The Sydney Morning Herald, “The city’s residents are truly hurting due to the government’s actions.”

By accepting these positions, celebrities are backing a regime that has been criticized by the international community.

Ted Hui, a former Hong Kong pro-democracy lawmaker who was exiled during the city’s crackdown on dissenters, stated that he was ‘disappointed to see anyone participating in Beijing’s or the Hong Kong regime’s propaganda’

Mr. Hui, an ardent critic of the communist state, did note that Cummins probably had good intentions when he agreed to lead the campaign.

The Hong Kong tourism promotion for Cummins runs from October 5 to November 28.
