The hashtag movement, which calls for an end to the hatred of Asian people on social networking services, is spreading rapidly. On the 19th, three days after eight people, including four Koreans, were killed in a series of shootings in Atlanta, Georgia, the U.S., more than 100,000 posts with #StopAsianHate were posted on Instagram.
The hashtag movement is similar to the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag movement, which began online after George Floyd died last year due to excessive police suppression. Attention focuses on whether the #StopAsianHate action will follow the precedent of the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag movement, which began in the United States last year and has spread to the world. Through this incident, celebrities in the entertainment industry also raise their voices to ‘Stop racist crimes against Asians.’
Dua Lipa uploaded a capture of broadcasting news on the SNS and said, ‘I’m tired of such horrific news’ and ‘No one should be losing their life because of the color of their skin.’
Rihanna also noted the incident. ‘What happened yesterday in Atlanta was brutal, tragic,’ adding, ‘My heart is with the loved ones of those we lost yesterday.’
Arianna Grande said, ‘The media needs to be held accountable. Call these INCIDENTS what they are: Hate Crimes against Asian Americans.’ she shared a poster with the phrase.
Gigi Hadid also called ‘Yesterday, eight people were murdered as a result of a hate crime against Asian Americans. CALL IT A HATE CRIME.’ She reiterated that the incident was a hate crime.
