‘You Got Corona, Mate!’: British Girls Caught Yelling Racist Slurs at Asian Couple
A Twitter user has exposed a pair of British girls who allegedly yelled racist slurs at them and their partner because they were Asian.
In a tweet posted on March 16, user @Keanu00823443, who also identifies as Darren Kane, claimed that the girls approached them while on a stroll, presumably minding their own business.
It’s unclear where exactly the incident happened, but Kane has called the attention of London’s Metropolitan Police Service.
“Today I was approached by two girls as I was having a stroll with my partner. They yelled out racial racism [sic] towards us since we both are Asian,” Kane wrote. “It’s come to a point where I’m just afraid of going out now.”
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
