Dear Mainstream Media: STOP Perpetuating Asian Coronavirus Stereotypes

As COVID-19 continues to sweep across the globe, the hysteria continues to overwhelm communities from Asia, Europe and the U.S. Unfortunately, the fear is intensifying verbal and physical assaults against Asians around the world, most of whom have no connection to the virus.

Asians of all backgrounds are being randomly targeted without any provocation and many victims have no recourse. The media is also playing a hand in inflaming stereotypes by repeatedly using images of Asians regardless of the geographic location of the COVID-19 incident.

In this special episode, May Lee felt compelled to speak up and address the madness of what’s going on and also share some practical health guidelines from a coronavirus expert.
