BTS Condemn Anti-Asian Racism with #StopAsianHate #StopAAPIHate
Following the Atlanta shooting tragedy, BTS released a powerful statement of advocacy against racism. The anti-Asian violence and discrimination against Asian Americans have risen during the coronavirus pandemic.
Further, the Kpop group conveyed an empathetic message to those who have lost their loved ones. They also shared their personal experiences of discrimination included “expletives,” “mocked for the way” they look and even asked why Asians spoke English.
Furthermore, BTS joins the Stop AAPI Hate movement and calls for respect and solidarity to end the discrimination and violence against Asian people with the hashtags “#StopAsianHate” and “#StopAAPIHate.”
According to the latest Stop AAPI Hate movement report, Asian Americans were subjected to nearly 3,800 hate incidents over the last year.
