Karrueche spoke out against the xenophobia and discrimination that Asian-Americans have been facing lately.
The model and actress made a statement on Instagram, where she wrote, “Xenophobia is not OK! To target and discriminate [against] Asians is wrong! There are Asians afraid to leave their homes! There are people who have already been hurt (I know y’all seen the video of the older Asian man). The coronavirus is not ‘The Chinese Virus’! Let’s stop instilling more fear and hate. The world is struggling enough as it is. Please stop this!”
Meanwhile, the President of the United States is still hosting press conferences where he refers to COVID-19 as the “Chinese virus.”
- Health professionals have said time and time again, COVID-19 doesn’t discriminate against any ethnicity, skin color, etc.
- Listen to Karrueche.
- Treat people like you want to be treated. Period.
- We need to look out for one another and come together during these times. Not call people names or ostracize them.
