Jamie Chung, Lana Condor, and More Celebrities Call for Change: Stop Asian Hate


On March 16, three massage parlors near Atlanta were targeted by a 21-year-old white man. Eight people–six of whom were Asian women—were killed. Although the motive for the shootings hasn’t been confirmed, it seems clear: This is a hate crime. 

The attacks on Young’s Asian Massage, Gold Spa, and Aromatherapy Spa are part of a bigger pattern of increased violence people of AAPI (Asian American Pacific Islander) descent are facing because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now celebrities are taking to social media to speak out and call for change. They’re sharing their experiences, offering important resources for how to help, and telling the world: Stop AAPI hate.
