China has huge income gap between the wealthy and the poor. As a result, the wealthy also pay (or should pay) majority of taxes that fund the society. It is government's responsibility to either make sure that everyone pays taxes that they owe, or use the tax contributions in ways that matter. The general public does have right to demand the (supposedly) wealthy to chip in more like this. The movie may have made profit, but those profits would also be taxed. If the tax funds are not sufficient to fund recovery from disasters that should not come as surprises, then the government is to blame - either for not enforcing tax regulations sufficiently, or not targeting the expenditure of those contributions to where they should be.
