HONG Kong superstar Jacky Cheung’s blunt response to a fan’s question sent netizens into fits of laughter, reported Sin Chew Daily.

The 62-year-old singer was caught by a group of fans when leaving a hotel car park in Beijing, China, and was presented with a stack of gifts.

One of the fans asked Cheung, popularly known as “the God of Songs”, if he liked her daughter’s present.

“Boss, do you like my daughter’s present? It’s a fan. She made it herself,” the woman said while gesturing towards a homemade paper fan.

Cheung, who bore a frustrated expression, said: “I have not used it yet.” He then waved at the fans before departing.

Many netizens were entertained by Cheung’s deadpan response.

“Jacky is too honest. Please don’t make things awkward for him!” one netizen wrote.
