Karrueche Tran Slams Anti-Asian Racism During Coronavirus Pandemic

Karrueche Tran

*Karrueche Tran has taken to Instagram to call out xenophobia against Asians amid the coronavirus crisis.

“Xenophobia is not ok!!” she wrote on Instagram. “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.’”

One of her followers responded to the post, “Girl please y’all have no sympathy for African Americans and are racist as well.”

Do you agree?

Karreuche’s post also addressed Trump calling COVID-19 “the Chinese Virus.” 

“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!” Trump tweeted on March 16.

On Thursday, he blamed China for its failure to contain coronavirus before it spread and paralyzed the world.

“It could have been contained to that one area in China where it started,” Trump said. “And certainly the world is paying a big price for what they did.”

He also continues to brush off criticism over his use of the term “Chinese Virus.”

“Because it’s from China. It’s not racist at all, no. Not at all. It comes from China,” Trump said. “That’s why. It comes from China. I want to be accurate.”

Trump previously noted China’s attempt to blame the U.S. for the outbreak.

“As you know China tried to say at one point, maybe they stopped now, that it was caused by American soldiers,” he went on to say. “That can’t happen. it’s not gonna happen. Not as long as I’m president. It comes from China.”
