Actress Karrueche Tran Is speaking out against the xenophobia aimed at Asians amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“Xenophobia is not ok!!” she wrote. “To target and discriminate against Asians is wrong!! There are Asians afraid to leave their homes! There are people who have already been hurt.” She then pointed to an incident, in particular, a video of an “older Asian man,” before declaring that “the coronavirus is not ‘the Chinese virus.’”
“Chinese viurs” is a racial slur that was started by Donald Trump.
“The United States will be powerfully supporting those industries, like Airlines and others, that are particularly affected by the Chinese Virus. We will be stronger than ever before!” he tweeted on March 16.
Karrueche is right:
Let’s stop instilling more fear and hate.
