Despite footage that showed that her injuries were due to her losing her balance and falling to the ground after she was pushed by protesters, Ma insisted she was beaten up.

Ma said she was filming protesters destroying Bank of China’s automated teller machine when the protesters surrounded her and one of them grabbed her mobile phone.

As she was being led away by a man who was worried about her safety, Ma said one of the protesters hit her head with a stick and pushed her to the ground.

Although feeling the pain from the beating, Ma said she would continue to speak up and the action of destroying the ATM machine was wrong.

She has publicly backed Hong Kong police and the Chinese Communist Party and commended the work of the Hong Kong Government, insisting “Hong Kong is part of China.”

In a July video, she described the protests against an extradition bill to mainland China as “rubbish”.
