Hong Kong Denies "Be Water" License Plate

Hong Kong Be Water

While many celebrated the 80th birthday of the late martial arts star Bruce Lee this past week, apparently not everyone was in the spirit. It's being reported that the Hong Kong Transport Department has denied a request to have Lee's famous slogan "Be Water" used on a license plate claiming it might cause danger to other drivers on the road.

However critics claim the real reason for the denial is likely that "Be Water" was adopted as the motto of the pro-democracy movement during last year's anti-government protests that swept across Hong Kong.
