Response to Bruce Lee's beef with the Triads
The biggest lie ever told is the Devil doesn't exist. If you are influenced by the improbable aspect of something, you could very well become a probable victim of the same circumstance.
Simply based on WHY he had to leave HK in 1959, with his dad insisting he not return, is reason enough to believe the past caught up to Bruce Lee. Factor in the "overnight" success he experienced with his return in Kung-Fu Films, he was once again facing the elements which ran him away; Triads. They own the entertainment industry and law enforcement, in that part of the World. There's no way Lee would escape after returning to a place his dad WARNED him not to, and take up a living within the same environment. That's tempting fate 100%.
Then add in his stubborn, cocky, aggressive, and defiant nature, you have a recipe for disaster.
Look at all the stars since his death who have PLAYED the game with Triads,including JC, Sammo, Ti Lung... (what, you think his alcoholism came from nowhere?) and look at those who didn't and PAID the price; Linda Lin Di, Wang Lung Wei, Anita Mui, Leslie Cheung, Jet Li's original manager, San Mao... The list goes on. Chow Yun Fat was caught up at the height of his fame and threatened, had his career stalled for 3 yrs simply because a Triad wanted to tie his career down. Actresses have been raped, and publicly shamed...
They are the REAL deal, people. Bruce Lee more than likely met his end as a result of crossing them. You can believe the 'official' reports, however, if they wanted it reported he had a heart attack, that would be the case-even with bullet holes to the back of the head.
