Music star, Rihanna has shown massive support to the Asian-American community by lending her voice at the #StopAsianHate March.
The music icon stepped out for the march on Sunday 4th April, with her assistant, Tina Truong, and joined forces with a throng of supporters holding signs as drivers passing by honked in support.
The march took place at New York City, USA.
One of the signs Rihanna carried read, “Hate = Racism Against God’ and another read, “#StopAsianHate.”
Rihanna didn’t just show up, she was bent on making the sign herself and holding it proudly. As she walked the street, she vibed with fellow marchers and danced along the way.
However, it was pretty hard for most people to tell it’s Rihanna. She was seen wearing braids, a hat, sunglasses and a mask.
Recently, Asian hate crimes are spiralling out of control following the pandemic. One of such is the very recent one of an elderly woman who was viciously attacked over the weekend in Central Park while walking her dog.
